    m sam and to the rams, of course the bigots were out in force spewing their hate and intolerance, but that's america the ugly for you.

      the combine performance was an excuse for the team owners to be cowards.

        He was next-to-last in bench press and ran a 4.91. There were six events for DLs at the combine, and Sam didn't perform among the top 15 defensive lineman in any of them.

        Jackson Jeffcoat, of Texas, had a much better resume:

        2013: First-team All-American selection, Co-Big 12 Conference Defensive Player of the Year and Ted Hendricks Award winner. Was only FBS defensive lineman to lead his team in tackles.
        and was a top-15 performer in four of the six combine events...and went undrafted.

        The word "parent" is supposed to be a VERB, people...

        Then you are quite ignorant and know nothing about football.
