Newest draft pick, Michael Sams, has a agreed to filming a multi-part documentary series on OWN TV. The cameras will follow Michael's life as he's the first openly gay NFL player.
An anonymous Rams player commented about the news to ESPN:
"It's an interesting case that he gets to work with Oprah and have his own show, but I think it does raise eyebrows and it may be somewhat of a distraction. But this is our first time dealing with something like this, so we'll have to wait and see how it plays out and how people react."
OWN tried to ease the blow and reported that they will not take cameras into the lockers rooms during a game.
What do you guys think of this? Distracting from the game?
