Montreal Alouettes general manager Jim
Popp has put Michael Sam's chances of signing with the team next year
“Jim Popp expects more discussions
with agent for DL Michael Sam,” TSN Radio's Dave Naylor tweeted
on Thursday. “'50/50' chance he will be in Montreal for 2015.”
Montreal has exclusive rights to sign
him into the Canadian Football League (CFL).
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.
Last week, GQ named Sam one of
its Men of 2014.
