St. Louis Rams defensive end Michael Sam runs during rookie minicamp at Rams Park in St. Louis in this file photo taken May 16, 2014. Sam's dream of becoming the first openly gay player in the National Football League was put on hold on Saturday when he failed to make the St. Louis Rams' 53-man roster for the 2014 regular season.
