NEW YORK (AP/KTVI) – The Oprah Winfrey Network says it plans to produce a documentary series following the life of Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team has been postponed.

Details surrounding the postponement have not been released yet.

The series would take an up-close look at the man recently drafted by the St. Louis Rams in a groundbreaking moment in professional sports. Cameras would follow the former University of Missouri football player as he works to earn a spot on the Rams while under a media microscope.

Sam says it would be great if his story can lead others to accept who they are and go for their dreams.

    Good.! Let him make the team, start and establish a career;THEN produce the documentary. It will make it more credible (as in not doing it just for the money or fame),and give even more historical ‘weight’ to what has occurred, one that can;t be brushed aside. It will also bring his wish to be known as ‘only a football player’ even that much closer. Don’t ‘jump the shark’, and Good Luck Michael!

    Absolutely, and long since tired of Oprah and her fake interest in the “little people”.
