      Sam cut by Rams

      The St. Louis Rams have released defensive end Michael Sam, the first openly gay player selected in the NFL draft.

      Sam, a seventh-round draft choice, had been battling undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks for a final roster spot. Westbrooks was one of nine defensive linemen to make the team.

      Sam thanked the Rams for the opportunity in a series of tweets after the team made the announcement.
