INDIANAPOLIS -- Michael Sam needed no introduction. He provided one anyway, subtly spelling out his desire to be known simply as a football player whose sexuality isnt a national story. "Good afternoon. My name is Michael Sam. I play football for the University of Missouri," he said to commence his first public appearance since announcing hes gay. Sam smiled and laughed often during a 12 1/2-minute news conference at Lucas Oil Stadium, looking relaxed, jovial and confident while taking questions from the hundreds of reporters surrounding the podium. Despite credentials that include the Southeastern Conference co-defensive player of the year award, Sam is projected only as a mid-round pick in the draft in May. Hes 6-foot-2 and 260 pounds, falling somewhere between a defensive end in a 4-3 scheme and an outside linebacker in a 3-4 system. Where he winds up, Sam said he doesnt care. "Im a pass rusher. If you put me in a situation to get the quarterback, Im going to get the quarterback. Whoever coaches or GMs, this league is a passing league. Id like to believe in myself as a good pass rusher," Sam said. Hes not worried about being accepted, either, in light of the bullying scandal that emerged in Miami. "If the Miami Dolphins drafted me I would be excited to be a part of that organization," Sam said. "But Im not afraid of going into that environment. I know how to handle myself. I know how to communicate with my teammates. I know how to communicate with the coaches and other staff I need to communicate with." Mostly, Sam wants to communicate this: "I just wish you guys would just see me as Michael Sam the football player instead of Michael Sam the gay football player." His former Missouri teammates certainly did. "Hes happy with who he is. He doesnt shy away from who he is. Mike Sam has got a lot of personality. Hes a great guy. Hes not going to be any different than who he is every day," said wide receiver LDamian Washington, one of several ex-Tigers stars here for the NFLs annual scouting combine. If Sam were to slip down the draft board, determining a bias against his orientation or a fear of the potential distraction would be near impossible. If teams pass on him, theyre likely unsure how his combination of size and speed fits with their defence. "You only need one team. One team that believes in you. Theres 32 teams. You need one team," Washington said. Coaches and executives around the league were asked often this weekend for their thoughts on how Sam would fit, both on the field and in the locker room. "He would be welcomed, no different than any other player we have," New York Jets coach Rex Ryan said, adding: "The big thing we always talk about is respect in our locker room." Johnny Pesky Red Sox Jersey . Today, well look at five frontcourt players today, here from the Bay Area. 1. AMIR JOHNSON (Raptors): I cant figure out what the issue or problem is, but based upon what Im seeing, hes not right. Wade Boggs Red Sox Jersey . Grimes signed a $32 million, four-year contract to remain with Miami. The deal, which includes $16 million guaranteed, rewards Grimes for his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury that forced him to miss almost all of the 2012 season. http://www.redsoxapparelsshop.com/andrew-benintendi-jersey-c-39/. His second visit, not so much. Roark (7-5) allowed four runs on 10 hits and one walk over six innings in a 7-2 setback in front of several friends and family members, as the Cubs snapped his personal streak of four consecutive victories on Friday. Blake Swihart Red Sox Jersey .C. - Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Danny Granger, Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem are still not ready to play and will miss Wednesday nights game against the Charlotte Hornets. Roger Clemens Red Sox Jersey .ca. Kerry, In the first period of Saturdays Montreal-Ottawa game, Brendan Gallagher is called for goaltender interference. Craig Anderson is outside the blue paint trying to make the save.Alan Smith doubts Arsene Wenger is able to take Arsenal forward and feels someone like Diego Simeone would have a bigger impact at the club. Alexis Sanchezs double earned Arsenal a 2-0 win over West Brom at the Emirates on Thursday night to move up to third in the Premier League, but they remain 10 points behind Leicester with four matches to play.Sky Sports pundit Smith feels Wenger has failed to find the right chemistry in a squad that should be challenging for the title and wonders if the players would benefit from hearing a different voice next season, citing the current Atletico Madrid manager as an example. The former Arsenal striker told Sky Sports: You dont want to go out on a low after wheat hes achieved at this club, but he has always gone on record as saying if he felt he couldnt take the team forward and improve the team he would walk away. Alan Smith and Jamie Redknapp discuss whether Arsenal still lack a clinical striker after missing opportunities against West Brom Can he improve this team? Ive got my doubts and I think a lot of other people have. He has been here a long time.When George Graham was here I played for him for eight years and by the end of that time we had heard all of his rollickings and all of his team talks. It does get a bit stale.Wenger has done well to last 20 years, but I go back to words like optimism and excitement. Will there be that inside this stadium for the first kick-off of next season given the situation with the other clubs and all their new managers? Diego Simeone is a complete contrast; black and white really. They would be harder to beat with him at the helm. Alan Smith With the group they have got I dont think the chemistry is right in terms of leaders and nastiness sometimes, but I maintain you could get a better performance out of that group than Arsene Wenger has managed to get.For instance, Diego Simeone is a complete contrast; black and white really. They would be harder to beat with him at the helm.Thats probably a fair comment because of the steel he would bring to it. Arsene Wenger is a much different manager. Arsene Wenger was pleased with the quality Arsenal showed in the victory against West Brom Fans held up banners calling for Wenger to leave during Thursdays Premier League match, but Wenger insisted earlier this week that he has no plans to leave.ddddddddddddAnd fellow Sky Sports expert Jamie Redknapp insisted it would be tough for Arsenal to find the right manager to replace him.He said: You look at the managers available at the moment and there arent too many that would fit the bill for this brilliant football club. Could Diego Simeone be the answer for Arsenal this summer? Maybe Joachim Loew, the Germany manager, might fit the philosophy and style of play, but after that its very difficult.I love Simeone and could watch his teams play all day long, but its a complete contrast. They are up-and-at-them.Its a completely different style and I cant imagine Mesut Ozil enjoying that too much. Aaron Ramsey felt that Arsenal deserved the three points against West Brom And after watching Thursday nights game, Redknapp can understand the frustration of supporters following a season of underachievement.Its a big result, but it papers over the cracks really. It doesnt tell us anything, he added.Arsenal shouldnt be in a position where they are scrambling to get into the top four - from a position two points off Leicester eight weeks ago.This still isnt really good enough and Im sure the fans are not happy with that. Now all they can do is get into the top four.Thats what they have to do and its still going to be tight. I think this one should get them over the line.
