Just days after Sam was released by the Rams, he was signed to the Dallas Cowboy’s practice squad and now Smith is saying that could’ve been because the NFL urged teams to sign him. Hit the jump for details.

Via Complex Sports:

“According to sources I have in the NFL, the league did call a few teams. They did want teams to take Michael Sam because obviously we see what kind of movement they’re gearing for, and what they’re support of Michael Sam, who we all know, came out, acknowledged he was gay before the draft and ultimately something Roger Goodell and the NFL supports and they want their teams to support,” Smith said. “But other teams weren’t too receptive to taking him on once the St. Louis Rams cut him.”
