Michael Sam stood out from an apparel standpoint when St. Louis Rams rookies worked out Friday. The first openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team was sporting gold sleeves under his jersey. The former Missouri star was among the last four players to leave the field, getting extra special teams work after a workout that lasted about 1Ã? 1/2 hours. Rookies have been on the field the last two days.
The Thursday session was not open to the media and the Friday session was open but without interview access to coaches or players. Oprah Winfrey's cable network is filming a documentary about Sam and was among those training cameras on the workout, all from a distance.
