It's hard for non-fans to understand the odds against Michael Sam right now.
He was cut by the Rams along with 20 others after the last exhibition game.
The other 31 teams all cut about 20 players as well.
Some of them will be brought be for the eight-member practice squad.
At best, half of the players cut this weekend won't have a landing spot.
Maybe if there are injuries -and they keep working out - a spot might open up.
If not, next spring another class of college players will be ready for the NFL.
He played a lot in the preseason to give him the chance.
But the roster spot wasn't there.
