Michael Sam is among the six
celebrities named GQ's Men (and Women) of 2014.
Sam, the first openly gay player to be
drafted by the NFL, was cut by the St. Louis Rams before the start of
the season. He then joined the Cowboys' 10-man practice squad, where
he stayed for seven weeks before being let go.
GQ is also honoring four actors and a
comedian: Chris Pratt of Guardians of the Galaxy, Steve Carell
of Foxcatcher, Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley of The
Fault in Our Stars, and Dave Chappelle.
The magazine revealed all six covers on
Monday, along with a story on Chris Pratt. Additional stories will
be released throughout the week.
The 24-year-old Sam is currently
unsigned. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the
newly-formed Las Vegas Outlaws, an Arena Football League team, plans
to make an offer to Sam. An offer in the Canadian Football League is
also a possibility.
