Rush Limbaugh said there will be “hell to pay” and “some anger” in the media if the St. Louis Rams cut Michael Sam, who came out of the closet before the Draft.
On his Monday radio show, Limbaugh said he stood by his original point, “and that is, if you’re going to draft him, you can’t cut him” because “there’s gonna be hell to pay if they cut him.”
Limbaugh said the “pressure is already on the Rams not to cut Michael Sam” and, “if they do cut him, there will be some anger in the media out there.”
“It won’t be everywhere. It won’t be universal. I mean, some sports people will say, ‘It was understandable. He’s not that good,'” Limbaugh said. “There’s a lot of people in his position on that team that are better, but there will be some who will use it as a launching point.”
The seventh-round pick made some waves this weekend when he sacked Johnny Manziel in a preseason game and made his “money” gesture. MMQB’s Peter King reported that Sam may get claimed by other teams if the Rams decide to put him on the practice squad.
