The Pigskin Chronicles

I've been watching Michael Sam's progress with great interest since he came out publicly after finishing his college football career at the University of Missouri.  When the St. Louis Rams chose the defensive end, Sam became the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team.  But the Rams waived Sam in the final round of cuts.  Then the Dallas Cowboys picked him up for their practice squad.  Two days ago the Cowboys released him.

For Michael Sam, it's third down.  For me, I'm running out of football idioms.
