I bet the Rams love this

Michael Sam gets a reality show on Oprah’s network

Rams defensive end Michael Sam is getting a reality show.

The Oprah Winfrey Network announced today that it is working with Sam on a reality TV project that will show his life as the first openly gay player in the NFL.

“We are honored that Michael is trusting us with his private journey in this moment that has not only made history but will shape it forever,” Oprah Winfrey said in a statement. “I am proud of the focus on authentic storytelling in our new documentary series format.”

There’s been no word on how much access the Rams will give the reality TV cameras, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the team has some qualms about it. NFL teams generally prefer for their rookies to put all their energy into football, not outside projects. That’s why A.J. McCarron quickly distanced himself from it when his fiancee, Katherine Webb, was reportedly in talks for a reality show. And that may be why Sam, in a statement, made clear that his focus is on making the team.

“Like every player out there working to make a team right now, my focus is on playing football to the very best of my ability,” said Sam. “I am determined. And if seeing my story helps somebody else accept who they are and to go for their dreams too, that’s great. I am thankful to Oprah for her support and excited to work together.”

Working with Oprah will be nice, but working for Jeff Fisher is what Sam really needs to do in the next three months, if he still wants to be a Ram in four months.

This guy was smart like a fox. I'm sure he knew the deals would start rolling in.

He'll do the book then get a movie deal out of it. Not to mention all the money he'll be making on the talk you circuit.

This is going to be a circus for the Rams, glad its not the Cowboys for a change.

P.T. Barnum comes to mind:


Okay consider yourself banned from Oprah for life. But lets keep this clean, don't let it get out of
El Kabong

Its really obvious I don't care what this guy is up to. He had a great football season, should have been drafted in the 3-4 round.

What he's up too will play its self out sooner or later, like I sais glad I don't give a damn, one way or the other.
