Michael Sam was signed by Dallas on Sept. 3 after being waived by the St. Louis Rams.
Irving, TX (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Dallas Cowboys waived defensive end Michael Sam from the practice squad on Tuesday to make room for a linebacker who recently worked out for the team.
Sam, the first openly gay player in the NFL, was signed on Sept. 3 after being waived by the St. Louis Rams, who drafted him in the seventh round.
The former SEC Defensive Player of the Year at Missouri spent the first seven weeks of the season on the Cowboys' 10-man practice squad without making the 53-man roster.
Strike three is looming for Harvin

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Breakin' up is hard to do, at least according to Neil Sedaka.
For Pete Carroll and John Schneider, though, it wasn't difficult at all. The Seahawks' braintrust sent the disagreeable Percy Harvin to the desperate New York Jets on Friday in exchange for a conditional pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
It most likely will be just a sixth-round selection but could move up to a fourth-rounder if Harvin actually starts acting like a professional in New York, a bigger long-shot than the 1-6 Jets turning things around and making a run toward the postseason.
