After being cut by the Cowboys and the Rams, Michael Sam has signed a two-year deal with the Montreal Alouettes.
General manager Jim Popp believes Sam, who is the first openly gay player to have been drafted by an NFL team, will be accepted and embraced by his teammates. “Michael Sam is a very good football player, and that’s the reason we signed him. He’s an outstanding pass-rusher,” Popp said.
“With the signing of Michael Sam, we have become a better organization today. 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.”
