NFL: St. Louis Rams-Press Conference

Michael Sam on Tony Dungy’s Comments: ‘Thank God He Wasn’t The St. Louis Rams Coach’

Tony Dungy recently came out and said he wouldn’t draft Michael Sam, and now the St. Louis Rams LB has responded to the former NFL head coach.

Sam took the high road and attempted to make a joke out of the issue, and told ESPN’s Nick Wagoner he has respect for Dungy.

As far as his performance on the field, Sam has been working hard to improve on his quickness and power. Remember, he decided not to do a reality show on the Oprah Winfrey Network, saying he wanted to “focus on football.”


Sam’s head seems to be in the right place. With training camp just around the corner, he’s better off focusing on improving his play on the field, rather than responding to comments off the pitch. And that’s exactly what he’s doing.
