Michael Sam—the former SEC Defensive Player of the Year who was cut by the St. Louis Rams, and then released from the Dallas Cowboys practice squad in 2014—is engaged! Congratulations to Sam, and his boyfriend Vito Cammisano.
You may remember Cammisano from Sam's famous NFL Draft day kiss, when the two celebrated Sam's seventh-round selection by the Rams. Unfortunately, that would be the high-point of Sam's NFL "career," as numerous teams have decided to pass on the defensive end's viable talent, which he proved during the preseason with plays like these.
Proof of Sam's engagement comes courtesy of TMZ, which dug around to find an engagement announcement via a mutual friend of Cammisano and Sam's. We hope that the two are one day able to enjoy a happy and healthy and pro football-funded life together.
