Full house at Rams for Sam availability
May 13, 2014
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have never introduced a rookie class with such a commotion.
A half-dozen TV trucks lined a crammed parking lot at Rams Park on Tuesday, an hour before the team's two first-round picks were due at the podium.
The star attraction, former Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, was scheduled to talk later, grouped with five others taken in the sixth- and seventh rounds of Saturday's draft. Unlike your garden-variety, seventh-round pick, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team also was scheduled for a solo session.
Sam puts on the pads later in the week when the team holds a rookie minicamp, normally a low-key event also sure to attract outsized attention.
