Michael Sam will be the first openly gay player in NFL history if he is selected in the 2014 NFL Draft in May, but it turns out there may be some teams that are not suited to him.
In fact, Cyd Zeigler, who help him through the process of coming out, admits he 'prays to God' that Sam does not end up in Texas with the Dallas Cowboys.
Zeigler is the co-founder of Outsports.com, and acted as one of the people who helped plan out the strategy for how Missouri defensive lineman Sam would publicly come out.
However, in a recent interview, he did reveal his reservations about where Sam should and should not end up.
“He can work on any team with decent leadership,” Zeigler said. “I pray to God he doesn’t end up on the Dallas Cowboys, the New York Jets or the Washington Redskins.
"I think those three teams -- they have poor leadership, but most of the other teams in the NFL have guys -- the coaching staff, the front office and locker room -- who are equipped to deal with this.”
