NFL Rumors: Baltimore Ravens to pursue signing Michael Sam if he goes undrafted


The story of Michael Sam has been one of the closely watched stories as the NFL Draft entered it’s late stages and the final rounds begin to roll by. Sam would be the first openly gay player in the NFL if he gets drafted but even if he doesn’t there’s a good chance he finds a team before the end of the night.

According to Jason La Canfora from CBSSports.com, the Baltimore Ravens will aggressively pursue Sam if he goes undrafted through seven rounds.

There’s still a chance that he gets taken but if he doesn’t, there are a slew of teams like the Cardinals, Patriots, Lions, 49ers and others we’ve heard mentioned as being interested in Sam who could go ahead and sign him.
