    The Montreal Alouettes announced Friday that the club has signed defensive end Michael Sam to a two-year deal.

    "With the signing of Michael Sam, we have become a better organization today," Alouettes' general manager Jim Popp said in a release. "Not only have we added an outstanding football player, we have added even a better person that brings dignity, character, and heart to our team."

    I look forward to the day when something like this isn't even newsworthy.

    Welcome to the CFL, Mr. Sam.

    I hope you do well, and have found a new home.

    That locker room at McGill is pretty small. The other guys' openness will be tested.

    If he was sick, why would he totally leave the team?

    That TSN article reads like it was something bigger than just a sickness.

    I agree. It doesn't make sense. There seems to be more going on.

    Perhaps a locker room problem with some players?

    LOL well the story on Sam is simple he does not get a bye to be on the team because of being gay is number 1 and number 2 up in Canada he is not a media attraction so I imagine he saw the talent and figured he himself could not make the team so he left. Pretty much what he did down south.

    afte dan Hawkins in 2013 and troy smith in 2014 the als have once again fallen flat on their hype. I really hoped for better this year.
