Michael Sam: ‘Talent’ isn’t the reason I’m not in the NFL

Michael Sam needs to get over himself. There are plenty of players who are celebrated in college who just can’t cut it in the NFL. Sad as I am about it, Tim Tebow is one of them. But he doesn’t blame the fact that he’s a Christian on his not being in the NFL. He just works harder in hopes that his dream of being an NFL quarterback will someday happen.

Michael Sam could learn from Tim Tebow.
