The St. Louis Rams have pushed the pause button on the football career of rookie linebacker Michael Sam.

Sam, the NFL's first openly gay player, was released Saturday in the final round of cuts, missing out on a spot on the 53-man roster.

There’s still a possibility Sam could wind up with the Rams. In order to place him on their practice squad, they would need to place him on the waiver wire for a day, thus making him available to the league’s other 31 teams.

Sam, a standout defensive end at the University of Missouri, was drafted in the seventh round by the Rams in the 2014 NFL Draft.
