Michael Sam

Released by Cowboys

21 Oct, 2014

Sam is released by the Dallas Cowboys in favor of linebacker Troy Davis.

I want to thank the Jones family and the entire Cowboys organization for this opportunity, as well as my friends, family, teammates, and fans for their support. While this is disappointing, I will take the lessons I learned here in Dallas and continue to fight for an opportunity to prove that I can play every Sunday.
