I am convinced that Goodell leaned on the Rams or someone to take Sam.
Doubt he makes the team. Nothing against his orientation, he is just not good enough, especially as a tweener
I think he makes the special teams squad. He's a Rudy type player who can make an impact there.
As for dungy, he is very religious as everyone knows, so I think that played a part in this. I've always liked dungy though. And as for the OP way to be a dick bringing his sons suicide into this.
