Michael Sam Cut By The St. Louis Rams

NFL teams had to cut rosters down to 53 players by 4 p.m. today, and all eyes were on the Rams to see if they'd keep seventh-round pick Michael Sam. Unfortunately, Sam was cut by St. Louis, although he is still eligible for the team's practice squad, and can be claimed on waivers by another team.

It will be pretty easy for the Rams to show Sam's cut was a football decision. They already had a deep defensive line to begin with, and undrafted free agent defensive end Ethan Westbrooks arguably outplayed Sam during the preseason. Sam was one of the last five players to be cut, as the Rams' roster was at 58 players as of Saturday morning.
