Doesn't surprise me in the slightest............extremely average football player who got far more media coverage for reasons other than ability.

That said hope he overcomes his mental health issues and moves forward

Overhyped overdrafted player can't live up to expectations and retires.
Nothing new there and only a story because it is Sam.

The above posts say it all really. Hopefully we can be more measured in our appraisals of players in future rather than indicating there is some kind of bigotted conspiracy to exclude gay players. Good luck to the kid in whatever he decides to do next.

Wow people really have too much time on their hands to be able to watch the 3rd string players in random pre-season games, hell I couldn't even make it through the entire Rams game on Friday .

He has now realised the media circus he welcomed really is not going to give you a nice life.

Very sad state of affairs, he was incredibly brave coming out as gay before the draft and I suspect the increased spotlight has been too much for him to deal with.

I hope this doesn't stop other players coming out about their sexuality.
