Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Dallas Cowboys plan to bring Michael Sam to Dallas on Wednesday for a physical. If all goes well, Dallas would like to sign Sam to the practice squad.
The St. Louis Rams released Sam on Saturday. The seventh-round pick cleared waivers and met with St. Louis head coach Jeff Fisher on Sunday, but the team opted not to sign last year’s Co-SEC Player of the Year to its practic squad. Schefter tweeted earlier today:
Cowboys plan to bring Michael Sam to Dallas for a physical Wednesday, per team source. If all goes well, Sam will be a Cowboy.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 2, 2014
To be clear, Dallas would like to sign Michael Sam to practice squad, not active roster. First things first. Physical Wednesday.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 2, 2014
