(MIAMI GARDEN, Fla.) — Even though Michael Sam has yet to learn if he’s made the St. Louis Rams after a productive preseason, he expressed confidence that once the weekend is over, he’ll officially be an NFL player.

“You know what, it’s not going to be like the draft,” Sam said.

“I’m very confident that I’m going to sleep really well tonight and I’m very confident I’m going to be on a team, the Rams or any other team in the NFL.”

Sam made headlines before the NFL scouting combine when he announced that he’s gay. He’d be the first openly gay player in NFL history.

Already with a chip on his shoulder, Sam needed to prove to Rams coaches that as a seventh round pick, he should make the team.

He’s had a very productive preseason. In four preseason games, he’s recorded 11 tackles while also registering three sacks.

The deadline for NFL teams to submit their final 53-man rosters is at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday.
