|Michael Sam hasn't yet found a professional NFL team to call home—but here's hoping that his decision to enter the draft as an openly gay athlete makes the road easier for those hoping to follow in his footsteps. The former University of Missouri football star tells Oprah Winfrey, in a sit-down airing Saturday on OWN's Oprah Prime, that "a very few" gay NFL players have reached out to him in solidarity. Pressed by Winfrey as to what he meant by a few—"One? Two? Three? Five?" she asked—Sam only reiterated, "Very few reached out to me."
