Detroit Lions "applaud Michael Sam" for courage, proactive approach

ALLEN PARK (WKZO) -- The Detroit Lions are in the corner of University of Missouri All-American defensive end Michael Sam, who is seeking to become the first openly gay player in the NFL.

Lions president Tom Lewand issued a statement this week after Sam came out through the "New York Times," ESPN and Outsports on Sunday saying the Lions "applaud Michael Sam for his courage and proactive approach." The statement goes on to say the team will evaluate Sam for the draft based "solely on his ability to help the Lions win football games."

The NFL issued a similar statement of support on Sunday after Sam went public.
