Michael Sam Hasn't Showered With Teammates, St. Louis Rams Defender Tells ESPN

By Jason McIntyre

Josina Anderson just did a segment on ESPN’s SportsCenter live from Rams camp, and she was asked whether Michael Sam is fitting in with his teammates. Anderson said that defensive tackle Kendall Langford said Sam was just “one of the guys.”

“But another Rams defensive player told me that ‘Sam is respecting our space.’ From his perspective, he seems to think that Michael Sam is waiting to kind of take a shower, so as not to make his teammates feel uncomfortable.”

Kendall Langford said he hadn’t been in shower at same time as Michael Sam, but hadn’t been charting it one way or another. “There definitely could be a million reasons as to why that is,” he told Anderson. “He could be doing extra work on the practice field, he could be riding his bike, he could be doing extra cardio — but overall Langford said he seems to be adjusting to the life of the NFL and the speed of the game,” Anderson said.
