The first openly gay football player is on his way to join the Dallas Cowboy practice squad.  

I am enjoying the wonderful saga of a black gay NFL football player who is going to change hearts and minds in red state Texas.

Sam was cut by the St. Louis Rams and has been waiting for another NFL team to pick him up after a solid pre season performance.  

It's been a roller coaster this past week but I'm happy where I'm at now," Sam told MailOnline. "I'm just looking forward to being a Cowboy, my focus is on making the team."

"It has all happened so quickly, but it's exciting, I just wanna get back to playing football you know," Sam said. "I haven't had chance to speak to any of my family yet, not even my mom, but I will. I never followed the Cowboys growing up because I never had a team. I am a fan of defenses and Dallas need some help, that's why I'm going."

I have just become a Cowboy fan.
