Michael Sam is getting his second chance with the NFL.

On Wednesday morning, the Dallas Cowboys announced that they signed the 24-year-old to their practice squad. “We just want to give him a chance to come in and help our football team. That’s where our attention is [football]. What people say outside the organization is up to them,” the team’s coach, Jason Garrett said.

Sam, who was on track to be the NFL’s first openly gay player, was released by the St. Louis Rams last weekend and went unclaimed off waivers.

“I want to thank the entire Rams organization and the city of St. Louis for giving me this tremendous opportunity and allowing me to show I can play at this level. I look forward to continuing to build on the progress I made here toward a long and successful career,” Sam tweeted after his release. ”

He added, “The most worthwhile things in life rarely come easy, this is a lesson I’ve always known. The journey continues.”

Although the Cowboys need pass-rush help, there is speculation that Cowboys signed the Texas native also for publicity. Sounds crazy right? Many are arguing that the team had ample opportunity to pick up that star before the season’s start, but chose to pass … Until now.
