In an interview Patrick on the Dan Patrick Show, Sam talks about coming out.
I wanted to come out after I made an NFL roster, it really wasn’t supposed to be public. It was just supposed to be to the team, as I did at the University of Missouri. I wanted to be the one to tell my own story. I didn’t want someone telling it for me.dan pat
When Patrick asks Sam if coming out hurt his professional career:
I’m not going to say … but it probably would have been better for me if I didn’t come out, I would be on a roster. But, as I said, I have no regrets whatsoever.
