espn has the news…
Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team, signed a two-year contract Friday with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
“With the signing of Michael Sam, we have become a better organization today,” Alouettes general manager Jim Popp said in a release. “Not only have we added an outstanding football player, we have added even a better person that brings dignity, character, and heart to our team.”
The Alouettes have held the exclusive CFL rights to Sam since his senior year at Missouri, when he was the SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year.
“I am very excited and proud to join the Montreal Alouettes,” Sam said in a statement. “… I cannot wait to put on the pads, get back on the field and work hard each and every day with my teammates to bring a Grey Cup to the great fans here in Montreal.”
Popp never considered Sam’s sexuality to be an issue.
“Michael Sam is a very good football player, and that’s the reason we signed him,” Popp said. “He’s an outstanding pass-rusher.”
