DE Michael Sam says he's gay

A landmark announcement occurred Sunday, as former Missouri defensive end Michael Sam -- an All-American and the SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year -- said he is gay in interviews with ESPN and The New York Times. NBA free agent Jason Collins came out in April but has yet to sign with a team, meaning Sam, a projected middle-round draft pick, might become the first openly gay player on an active roster in any of the four major North American team sports. How will players respond? How will this affect his draft stock? When will such revelations be commonplace?
