WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- The Dallas Cowboys will bring in free agent defensive end Michael Sam for a physical, and could sign him to their practice squad.

A team source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter the team will get a look at the rookie Wednesday, who was cut from the St. Louis Rams' 53-man roster Saturday.


Sam, who made history and headlines when he became the first openly gay player to be drafted to the NFL this spring, had a good showing in the preseason. He finished with 11 tackles and three sacks, but the defensively stacked Rams ultimately did not find room on their roster or their 10-man practice squad.

He cleared waivers and became a free agent Sunday.

The Cowboys, meanwhile, had a terrible defensive season last year, finishing last in yards allowed and had the sixth-worst pass rush in the NFL, with just 34 sacks in 2013.
