Michael Sam cleared waivers today.

The St. Louis Rams cut the rookie defensive end on Saturday.

He recorded three sacks, but was edged out by Ethan Westbrooks.

Sam is looking to become the first openly gay player on an NFL roster.

The former Missouri All-American and Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year is eligible to join the practice squad.
