After becoming the first openly gay active player in the history of the NFL, Michael Sam's still has plenty of work left to do as he attempts to make the St. Louis Rams squad in training camp -- a journey which will be documented by the Oprah Winfrey Network:
Looking forward to sharing my life and journey on @OWNTV with friends, family , and my faithful supporters

In a statement transcribed by Nick Schwartz of USA TODAY Sports, Oprah Winfrey expressed hope that a documentary chronicling Sam's unique circumstances will end up as a positive influence on the American public:
We are honored that Michael is trusting us with his private journey in this moment that has not only made history but will shape it forever…. The next real-life story we follow in ‘The Untitled Michael Sam Project’ promises to spark valuable, important discussion on life in America today. Acceptance and illumination start here.
We here at Chat Sports will have more on this project as additional information is made available.
