NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that defensive end/outside linebacker Michael Sam passed his physical and has been signed to the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad. The rookie is expected to practice today.
Sam stands to make more of an impact with the Cowboys than the St. Louis Rams. The Cowboys are thin in terms of defensive line depth, while St. Louis was flush with rush ends and outside linebackers.
Sam, the first openly gay player in NFL history, had 2.5 sacks in preseason for the Rams.
