One of the biggest names to have come out of last year's NFL draft has faced the music against several NFL general managers today.
Michael Sam was drafted by the St Louis Rams in the seventh round of last year's draft but failed to make the roster for the franchise.
He was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys for the practice squad after being cut by St Louis but still couldn't find NFL glory.
Sam has been the subject of several high profile media appearances due to his status as the first openly gay player ever to enter the NFL.
The first ever veterans combine ran this weekend and many big names returned to update their figures and try to get a job back in the NFL.
Sam was one of the veterans who arrived for the combine and he has since claimed that he feels he still has a future in the league.
That is a big claim given that Sam posted a slower 40-yard dash time than he did at the rookie combine.
Despite his lower numbers, its not impossible for Sam to find a job in the NFL, but he will have to find an agent, general manager or scout who was impressed.
"My real honest opinion is that he was flat out horrible. He did not belong out there." - one NFL agent on Sam's performance
The comments from several high profile NFL agents have slammed into Sam and his future prospects in the NFL.
"He thinks he's a superstar. It would be nice if he could do something on the field to back up the attitude."
Perhaps the extra media attention on Sam has gone to his head in the last 12 months an it is certainly a stumbling block for the defensive lineman.
Some agents even speculated that due to his fan appeal, Sam could possibly make a career for himself in the Canadian Football League rather than the NFL.
