Michael Sam wants to try out for NFL, but may dance instead


Michael Sam insists he wants to continue to try to make it in the NFL, and wanted to attend the new veteran combine to try to create that chance.

At the same time, he might have created himself a scheduling conflict.

According to TMZ, the former Rams seventh-round pick has signed on to be a part of the next season of Dancing With The Stars.

Work on the show’s 20th season begins next month, and filming begins March 16.

That’s a week before the league’s inaugural veteran combine, which will be March 22 in Arizona.

He said he’s hoping for an invitation, so it’s unclear if his decision to trade his cleats for dancing shoes means that request has been declined, or whether he’s simply hoping to work around his television schedule.
