Michael Sam will probably never play another down in the NFL — and he has no one to blame but himself.
Sam, a 24-year-old SEC Defensive Player of the year out of Missouri, announced his homosexuality in February, leading many to believe it was a calculated attempt on his part to boost his chances at the NFL draft in May. Being an SEC standout was no guarantee that Sam would be drafted at all. Even more suspect was the fact that Sam apparently inked a deal with Oprah OWN Network to film a reality TV series before he was even drafted. Then there was the wedding cake incident when Sam tongue kissed his feminine boyfriend on national TV on draft day. ESPN’s cameras were there to film the 7th round draft pick licking icing off his boyfriend’s face.

In my post titled “Tae Heckard is Brandon Jennings’ Problem Now” I told you that Tae was once married to a woman.
And since TMZ lives on my blog, someone on TMZ’s staff did a little digging and uncovered a civil union license with Tae and another woman’s names on it.
Before Tae ties the knot with Brandon (and his financial assets), she must first divorce her wife.
