The Brave and Craven

February 10, 2014 9:42 am

I was about to link to this story about Michael Sam, Missouri’s All-America defensive end who came out last night just ahead of the NFL draft. Any player who comes out in major league sports is taking a brave step but Sam is doing so at what is likely the most vulnerable point professionally in a pro athletes’ career. So, helpfully, a bunch of NFL execs have come forward anonymously to Sports Illustrated to say, nope, the NFL ain’t ready.
