Alex Marvez talks about Michael Sam's status in the league

 

FOX Sports 1 senior NFL Reporter Alex Marvez says cultural issues, and not performance issues, are the reason Sam hasn't been signed yet. 

Alex Marvez: "I think there's a cultural situation here with the league, where you have some Coaches who don't want a (gay player) in their locker room... I also think there's some General Managers who are legitimately concerned, that by bringing in a gay player the week before your season opener, that that's going to become the story. That's going to be your team trying to assimilate with a player who they're not familiar with. It's going to become a major distraction both off the field and in the locker room. And there are just some G.M.'s who don't want to deal with that right now. And it's unfortunate for Michael Sam."
