I'm not going to tell you how you must feel about the depth of irony involved in telling someone how they should feel about someone else's feelings. :P

That's too bad.

It's not over for him though, someone else might pick him up.

He still might live his dream of rushing into Colin Kaepernick's backfield.

No team has yet to claim him on waivers. Could be headed to a practice squad.

To be clear, I was not talking about an NFL team in my comment. I was alluding to speculative "journalism" outside of football coming to the conclusion that he was cut for being openly gay.

I honestly don't feel any NFL team will pass on a man that can contribute to their pass-rush and make plays on defense. Maybe it's me being naive, but the bottom line of NFL teams is to win NFL games regardless of the sexual orientation of any of their players.

If a hunter-orange transsexual man with brown polka dots and 2 husbands can help win NFL football games, I highly doubt a team would pass on this NFL-caliber football player.

Re: Rams cut the gay guy

Never fear. There are still 1,643 gay players left in the NFL. That would be anyone not playing for the Saints.
