Cowboys sign Michael Sam to practice squad
“We felt like it was a good move for our football team right now,” head coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday.
“Obviously he was a very good player in college, a co-defensive player of the year in maybe the best conference in college football, so his track record speaks for itself,” Garrett said. “We did not draft him, but like with a ton of players around this league, we evaluate these guys all throughout the preseason.”
“It has all happened so quickly, but it’s exciting, I just wanna get back to playing football you know,” Sam said Tuesday night, according to ESPN.com. “I haven’t had chance to speak to any of my family yet, not even my mom, but I will. I never followed the Cowboys growing up because I never had a team. I am a fan of defenses and Dallas need some help, that’s why I’m going.”
Sam was not included on the Rams’ 10-player practice squad roster that was finalized Monday after final cuts to the 53-man roster limit last weekend.
