NFL Combine kickoff

The NFL Combine kicked off today in Indianapolis.

More than 300 NFL hopefuls are hitting the field over the next 4 days to prove their abilities.
   
One of the most talked about players at the combine this year is Mizzou defensive lineman Micahel Sam, who recently announced to the world that he's gay.
   
Sam's says he wishes everyone could look past the fact that he's gay and focus on his playing skills.


"Heck yeah I wish you guys would ask me how football is going, how's training going. I would love for you to ask me that question. But it is what it is. I just wish you guys would see me as Micahel Sam the football player instead of Michael Sam the gay football player."

Sam wore a rainbow colored button on his lanyard that says "Stand for Sam"... He says a fan gave it to him at a basketball game in Tennessee.
