The 'Journey Continues' for Michael Sam

Defensive end Michael Sam, who was released from the St. Louis Rams Saturday, says his being cut reminds him of a “lesson I've always known.”

Sam would have become the first openly gay football player in NFL history, which is still a possibility.

So now he's setting his sights toward building his career with a team other than the one that drafted him.

"The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I've always known. The journey continues," he tweeted Saturday.

Although, honestly, this University of Miami alum is mostly looking forward to the Canes rematch against the Louisville Cardinals Monday night.

Whomever you root for, enjoy college football's first weekend!
