Wikipedia: Michael Sam
Michael Alan Sam, Jr. (born January 7, 1990) is an American football defensive end for the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League (NFL).
After completing his college football career, Sam publicly came out as gay. He was selected by St. Louis in the seventh round, with the 249th overall pick, of the 2014 NFL Draft, becoming the first publicly gay player to be drafted in the league. If he plays in the league, he will also become the first active NFL player to have publicly come out.
Wikipedia: Homosexuality in American football
Few American football players have come out as gay. Six former National Football League (NFL) players have come out publicly after they retired. In college football, Division III player Conner Mertens came out as bisexual in January 2014, becoming the first active college football player at any level to publicly come out. There has never been an active Division I player who was publicly out. Former Division I player, Michael Sam, publicly came out in February 2014 after his college career. Later that year, he was selected by the St. Louis Rams in 2014 NFL Draft, and became the first publicly gay player drafted in the league. If he plays in the league, Sam could become the NFL's first active player who was publicly out.

Michael Sam's big gay kiss will never be forgotten. That was the whole point by Cyd Zeigler
It was one thing to watch Michael Sam's name get called on Saturday afternoon, as the 249th pick in the NFL Draft. Even people who are against same-sex marriage could understand the symbolism of the first openly gay player in the biggest sport in the biggest country in the world.
It was another thing entirely for the world to watch, a few minutes later, as two men kissed. On the lips. Over and over. And over and over.
America will never be the same again.
