Michael Sam: ‘I Am Not the Only Gay Person in the NFL’

Michael Sam: ‘I Am Not the Only Gay Person in the NFL’ Joe Robbins/Getty Images(DALLAS) -- Michael Sam, who was the first openly gay player to be selected in the NFL draft, said on Thursday that there are more gay players currently playing in the NFL. In a Q&A session in Dallas Thursday, Sam said that other players have reached out to him to thank him for having the courage to be open about his sexuality. "I am not the only gay person in the NFL," Sam said, according to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram. "I'm just saying there is a lot of us. I respect the players that did reach out to me and had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL." "Was it a risky move? Yes. But at that moment, the reason why I came out is I thought it wasn't going to be a big deal," Sam continued. "Maybe I was naive. Maybe I thought it was 2014, and people will understand that there's gay NFL players. There's gay athletes everywhere. But I was clearly wrong. It was a huge deal." "The players who have reached out to me and told me about their sexual orientation, it just means a lot. But I will never say anything about who they are, what teams they are [on]. I'm just saying there's some famous people, and I'm not the only one," he added. Sam failed to make the St. Louis Rams last year after being drafted by them and then played on the Dallas Cowboys practice team squad before being released on Oct. 21. "Hopefully I'm not being discriminated [against] because I'm gay," Sam said Thursday, according to the paper. "I don't believe that I'm being discriminated [against] because I'm gay. I just want to know if I'm truly not in the NFL, it's because of talent. Let it be because of my talents. But you've got to prove that I can't play this game. If you look at the film, clearly I can. So, I'll leave it at that." Sam participated in the first-ever veteran combine last weekend and ran the 40 in 4.99 seconds. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Stan Kroenke Has Designs for Two-Team Los Angeles Stadium

Stan Kroenke Has Designs for Two-Team Los Angeles Stadium Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Rams owner Stan Kroenke will not let anything get in the way of his efforts to move an NFL franchise to Los Angeles. Kroenke has designed his proposed stadium in Inglewood, California to host two teams, according to the Los Angeles Times. The design model accommodates the NFL's idea that Los Angeles is a two-team city, and competes with the Raiders and Chargers proposal for a joint stadium in Carson, California. Kroenke has publicly stated that he does not intend to move the Rams from St. Louis, but it would be odd for an owner to create a stadium and not house his own team in it. The Rams have now switched to a year-to-year lease with the city of St. Louis, so a move would be rather straightforward, should it occur.  New York Giants owner John Mara has stated that he believes a team will play in Los Angeles next year. To move, a team would need 24 other owners to support the relocation.  The earliest that would happen would be January 2016. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Dual Team Stadium Moves Forward In Los Angeles

Dual Team Stadium Moves Forward In Los Angeles IStockPhoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- As Stan Kroenke moves forward with his stadium efforts in the Los Angeles market, another stadium proposal has received the green light. The stadium would serve as the home for both the Chargers and Raiders, should both teams choose to leave San Diego and Oakland respectively. Both teams are seeking a new venue in their current market and have threatened to move if they do not receive a stadium proposal to their liking. "We have all been extremely encouraged by the sky-high level of support we have found for the stadium project," Chargers attorney Mark Fabiani said in a statement regarding the Los Angeles proposal. The proposal has received over 14,000 petition signatures to place a stadium in Carson. The next step will be to put the ballot up for local election.  Currently the Jets and Giants are only teams in the NFL that share a stadium. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Rams Sign DT Nick Fairley

Rams Sign DT Nick Fairley Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images (ST. LOUIS, Mo.) -- The St. Louis Rams are re-inventing the Fearsome Foursome.  Defensive tackle Nick Fairley has agreed to a one-year deal, worth up to $8 million. "The defensive line here is great," Fairley said. "I’m glad to be a part of it, glad to be coming in to a great situation with the defense, and just to add to it. So I’m here to help this team win and hopefully we’ll get to the Super Bowl." Before signing Fairley, St. Louis defensive line included Michael Brockers, Aaron Donald, Chris Long and Robert Quinn. The four members registered 22.5 sacks last season, though Long only played in six games due to injury. Fairley had recorded 10 pressures through a two-game span in October last year before a knee injury slowed down his season. Fairley is expected to slide in behind Donald as part of a defensive line rotation and will likely spell Brockers on passing downs. The Rams of the 1960's were comprised of Lamar Lundy, Rosie Grier, Merlin Olson and Deacon Jones.  The four members were known as the "Fearsome Foursome" and both Olson and Jones are members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Last season, Britt caught 48 passes for 748 yards and three touchdowns.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2015 ABC News Radio

Stadium Proposal Approved By Inglewood, California

Stadium Proposal Approved By Inglewood, California Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(INGLEWOOD, Ca.) -- The National Football League's inevitable return to the Los Angeles market has taken another step forward. Late Tuesday night, the Inglewood City Council approved a $2 billion stadium proposal set forth by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke. Last week, the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders put forth a proposal for a joint stadium in Carson, California. Kroenke and the Inglewood council felt a new sense of urgency after the two teams were seeking to relocate. The Rams left the Los Angeles market after the 1994 season. The team was founded in Cleveland in 1937 but relocated to Los Angeles in 1946. It is believed the Rams could move to Los Angeles as soon as the 2016 season, where they would play in the Los Angeles Coliseum until the new stadium would be completed around 2018.

San Diego Mayor Renews Chargers Stadium Efforts

San Diego Mayor Renews Chargers Stadium Efforts San Diego Chargers/NFL(SAN DIEGO, Ca.) -- As NFL franchises continue to threaten to leave their current locations for the Los Angeles market, local officials scramble -- often at the expense of taxpayers. San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer met with San Diego Chargers team president Dean Spanos and agreed to expedite a timetable with the county stadium advisory panel, to find a new location and finance plan for the stadium. "I explained to Mr. Spanos that we are going to work to keep the team here but I will never support a deal that San Diego can't afford," Faulconer said in a prepared statement. "We will continue to work to produce a viable stadium plan that is fair for San Diegans, protects taxpayers and can be approved by voters. "The stadium advisory group has agreed to speed up its efforts and will release a work product in the next 90 days. I look forward to sharing the plan with the public and the Chargers at that time." In 2013, USA Today found that oftentimes tax payers end up paying more than half the costs of new stadiums. During construction and improvements, the public takes on almost 75% of the bill due to "obscure costs." The advisory panel was originally scheduled to put forth a proposal in September, but as the Chargers continue to explore options in the Los Angeles market to put pressure on San Diego, Faulconer agreed to speed up the process.

Report: Rams Owner Will Move Team Without Permission

Report: Rams Owner Will Move Team Without Permission Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS, Mo.) -- St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke is buying land in Los Angeles and is intent on using it. According to ProFootballTalk.com, Kroenke will move the Rams from St. Louis with or without NFL approval.  To move, a team needs 24 (or three fourths of the other owners) votes of approval. Kroenke recently purchased 60 acres of land next to the Forum in Los Angeles and joined the owners of Hollywood Park to build an 80,000 seat stadium. ProFootballTalk also reports that Kroenke has informed the mayor of Inglewood that his team will be moving to the area.  It is possible that Kroenke could enter into a legal dispute with the NFL if enough owners intend to block the move. The Raiders, under the ownership of Al Davis, were the last team to sue the league in an effort to move, ironically to Los Angeles. Davis, filed an anti-trust lawsuit and in 1982 a district court ruled in the Raiders favor. They then moved to Los Angeles.    Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Report: Rams Owner Seeking to Build Stadium in Los Angeles

Report: Rams Owner Seeking to Build Stadium in Los Angeles Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The St. Louis Rams may soon be returning to the City of Angels. Stan Kroenke, who last year purchased 60 acres next to the Forum and Hollywood Park, recently joined the owners of Hollywood Park to build an NFL stadium, according to the Los Angeles Times. Kronke also is "negotiating to purchase" the 300-acre defunct horse racing track that resides on Hollywood Park. The current owners of the land, Stockbridge Capital Group, already plan to build a mixed-use community that now includes an 80,000-seat stadium. The lease on the Edward Jones Dome, where the Rams currently play in St. Louis, expires at the end of this season.  The team is reportedly negotiating a year-to-year lease with the city. The Rams previously resided in L.A. from 1946 through 1994. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

QB Drew Stanton Hurt in Cardinals 12-6 Win over the Rams

QB Drew Stanton Hurt in Cardinals 12-6 Win over the Rams Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- The Arizona Cardinals now hold the best record in the NFL after their 12-6 win over the St. Louis Rams on Thursday night, but it came at a price. Quarterback Drew Stanton had to leave the game with a right knee injury. The Cardinals had to turn to Ryan Lindley to fill in for Stanton, who was filling in for the injured Carson Palmer. Lindley wound up completing 4 of 10 passes for 30 yards. "[He's] been in this stadium and played against these guys," Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said of Lindley. "And it was not a time to put Logan [Thomas] out there. He's going to be a good player someday, but he's not ready for this yet, and Ryan was more than ready and really liked his poise and confidence." The team has used four quarterbacks this season despite their impressive record. With both teams without their starting quarterbacks, neither team was able to score a touchdown. Now at 11 wins, the Cardinals have tied their franchise record for most wins in a single season while the Rams clinched their 10th straight year without a winning season.

Rams Defeat Washington 24-0 for Second Straight Shutout

Rams Defeat Washington 24-0 for Second Straight Shutout Leon Halip/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- For the second straight week the St. Louis Rams shutout an opponent, the first time since 1945 that the Rams (6-7) have performed that feat. On Sunday, St. Louis beat the Washington Redskins 24-0, one week after trouncing Oakland 52-0. After a scoreless first quarter, Shaun Hill connected with Jared Cook on a 35-yard touchdown pass to open the scoring. Despite a missed extra point, the defense prevented the Redskins (3-10) from doing anything productive on offense. It wasn't until the third quarter that St. Louis began to put the game well out of reach. The Rams scored 18 points in the period, including another scoring catch from Cook and a 78-yard punt return to the house by Tavon Austin. Hill finished the game with 213 yards in the air and a pair of touchdown passes. St. Louis' defense totaled seven sacks in the win and held the Redskins to just 27 rushing yards. Washington's Colt McCoy was intercepted twice, completing 20-of-32 passes for 199 yards. Previously benched quarterback Robert Griffin, III made a late appearance and was 3-of-4 passing.

St. Louis Police Officers Angered by Rams Players Protest

St. Louis Police Officers Angered by Rams Players Protest Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS, Mo.) -- As the Rams began their player introductions Sunday against the Raiders, five players on St. Louis' squad drew the ire of the local police for raising their arms in support of the protests that have swept Ferguson, Missouri.  Tavon Austin, Kenny Britt, Jared Cook, Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens were seen on CBS with the "hands up, don't shoot" pose as they ran onto the field. The St. Louis Police Officers Association issued a statement with a harsh criticism of the players' statement, demanding punishment be issued by the league and the team: "...now that the evidence is in and Officer Wilson's account has been verified by physical and ballistic evidence as well as eye-witness testimony, which led the grand jury to conclude that no probable cause existed that Wilson engaged in any wrongdoing, it is unthinkable that hometown athletes would so publicly perpetuate a narrative that has been disproven over-and-over again." "All week long, the Rams and the NFL were on the phone with the St. Louis Police Department asking for assurances that the players and the fans would be kept safe from the violent protesters who had rioted, looted, and burned buildings in Ferguson. Our officers have been working 12 hour shifts for over a week, they had days off including Thanksgiving cancelled so that they could defend this community from those on the streets that perpetuate this myth that Michael Brown was executed by a brother police officer and then, as the players and their fans sit safely in their dome under the watchful protection of hundreds of St. Louis's finest, they take to the turf to call a now-exonerated officer a murderer, that is way out-of-bounds, to put it in football parlance," Roorda said. The SLPOA is calling for the players involved to be disciplined and for the Rams and the NFL to deliver a very public apology. Roorda said he planned to speak to the NFL and the Rams to voice his organization's displeasure tomorrow. He also plans to reach out to other police organizations in St. Louis and around the country to enlist their input on what the appropriate response from law enforcement should be. Roorda warned, "I know that there are those that will say that these players are simply exercising their First Amendment rights. Well I've got news for people who think that way, cops have first amendment rights too, and we plan to exercise ours. I'd remind the NFL and their players that it is not the violent thugs burning down buildings that buy their advertiser's products. It's cops and the good people of St. Louis and other NFL towns that do. Somebody needs to throw a flag on this play. If it's not the NFL and the Rams, then it'll be cops and their supporters." This comes after the announcement last week from St. Louis prosecutor Robert McCullough that officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted for the shooting death of Michael Brown.    Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

"But it's something you've got to do."Greg Zuerlein kicked five field goals, including two from over 50 yards, and the Rams' defense picked off Peyton Manning twice as the Broncos lose for only the third time this season."We didn't execute very well and I just think I didn't play very well," Manning said.

I have to play better and we have to score more points than seven."Denver (7-3) attempted to get into the game before halftime when Manning threw a 42-yard touchdown to Emmanuel Sanders, moving the Broncos within 6 points. That was the last time Manning would find the end zone, as his streak of 15 consecutive games with at least two touchdown passes was snapped.Denver did have some unfortunate luck as well.

Peyton Manning: It Won’t Be Easy in St. Louis

Peyton Manning: It Won’t Be Easy in St. Louis Justin Edmonds/Getty Images(DENVER) -- The Denver Broncos will travel to St. Louis on Sunday to take on the Rams. Quarterback Peyton Manning is well aware of the Rams defense. "Their front has been active all season long in my opinion," Manning said. "They got really good players, a lot of first round draft choices. That's where it starts for any defense, we've got to be able to control those guys somehow and that falls on everybody." Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders realizes that the Rams are hot right now. "You can't take these guys lightly. Their last three games they faced San Francisco, Seattle, Arizona, and they played those guys really well," Sanders said. "This is a good football team that we're facing with a great defensive line and we're playing them at home, we definitely have to bring our A-game." Denver comes into the game at 7-2 and is 2-2 on the road this year. The Rams (3-6) announced this week that Shaun Hill will be the starting quarterback.

Carson Palmer Exits Cardinals Win with Injury

Carson Palmer Exits Cardinals Win with Injury Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(GLENDALE, Ariz.) -- The Arizona Cardinals improved to an NFL-best 8-1 on the season with a 31-14 win over St. Louis on Sunday. However, team officials are fearful that quarterback Carson Palmer suffered a torn ACL in the fourth quarter and could be out for the rest of the year. Arizona was trailing the 3 and 6 Rams 14-10 entering the fourth quarter, but were driving when Palmer went down. The 34-year-old was carted off the field after clutching the same left knee that was surgically repaired in 2006 after tearing his ACL and MCL in a playoff game against Pittsburgh. "We don't know anything about Carson's injury or the length, whatever it is yet," coach Bruce Arians said. "He will be evaluated and get an MRI and everything and we will know something by tomorrow and hopefully by Tuesday." With their leader sidelined, and the scoreboard not in their favor, the Cardinals turned to Drew Stanton and immediately took control. Stanton found Josh Brown on a 48-yard touchdown pass to take a 17-10 lead before the defense sealed the deal. Patrick Peterson picked off an Austin Davis pass and ran it back 30 yards before Antonio Cromartie recovered a fumble and scored, putting the game out of reach for St. Louis. Davis threw two interceptions for the Rams, who were held to 244 total yards of offense. Prior to the injury, Palmer was 25-for-36 for 241 yards and an interception.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Rams Hold Off Kaepernick and 49ers Leon Halip/Getty Images(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) -- The Rams (3-5) buckled down on defense late and forced Colin Kaepernick to fumble the ball with seconds remaining at the goal line in their 13-10 win over the 49ers (4-4) on Sunday. St. Louis was ready for Kaepernick to try and sneak the ball into the end zone, and forced a fumble that was recovered by James Laurinaitis. The Rams defense sacked Kapernick eight times in their big road victory. "I just went to kind of meet him head-to-head down there and as I'm going down, I just see the ball sitting there," Laurinaitis said. "Jo-Lonn [Dunbar] did a great job recognizing sneak. You can just kind of tell by a quarterback's mannerisms when they're going to sneak." The play was reviewed and upheld after officials looked the play, but Kaepernick still disagreed with the call after the game. "I know I crossed the line. I was looking into the end zone," Kaepernick said. Greg Zuerlein kicked the go-ahead field goal with 5:25 left in the game. The Rams have now beaten the 49ers and Seahawks by a combined five points this year. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Rams Lose Jake Long and Brian Quick to Season-Ending Injuries

Rams Lose Jake Long and Brian Quick to Season-Ending Injuries Leon Halip/Getty Images(EARTH CITY, Mo.) -- The injuries continue to pile up for the St. Louis Rams as tackle Jake Long will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL while wide receiver Brian Quick will also miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn rotator cuff and separated shoulder. This is the second time Long has tore his ACL in under a year, same with starting quarterback Sam Bradford, who has missed the entire season. When on the field, Long has been as good as advertised for the Rams as he's provided steady protection for quarterback Austin Davis this season. For Quick, this is a tough blow for him as he was firmly establishing himself as the Rams go-to wide receiver. In just seven games this season, Quick had already set career highs in catches, yards, and touchdowns. "He was very productive," Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said. "He took advantage of all the opportunities, he made tough plays, tough catches, we're going to miss him. But as is the case when you have injured players, people step up so we have got to have people step up." Receivers Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens will see an increase in playing time now.
