Michael Sam rejoins Montreal Alouettes

Michael Sam has rejoined the Montreal Alouettes

This follows Sam being placed on the reserve-suspended list after leaving the team briefly for personal reasons.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he returns," Alouettes general manager Jim Popp told the Montreal Gazette previously. "I’m surprised he left. I was very surprised. If he doesn’t come back, I would think football’s over for him. He’s the one that has to face that. But I don’t think he doesn’t want to play football. That’s why he came here.” Sam was absent from the team for two weeks. “Thank you all so much for your support," Sam wrote on Twitter. "Great to be back in Montreal with the club. Let’s go #Als!” A former Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year at Missouri who was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round and was cut by the team and then briefly on the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad, Sam was the first openly gay active player in the NFL.
