GLENDALE, Ariz., Feb. 9 (UPI) — Michael Sam‘s dream is still alive. The former Dallas Cowboys and St. Louis Rams defensive end applied for the inaugural veteran combine on March 22, that will be held at the Arizona Cardinals practice facility.

The former University of Missouri standout remains diligent in his quest to become the first openly gay NFL player to make the 53-man roster. Sam applied for one of 100 spots available in the combine. Sam also has a one-year contract from the Canadian Football League’s (CFL) Montreal Alouettes on the table.

After being drafted in the seventh round by the Rams, the 25-year-old was later signed to the Cowboys practice squad before being released. Monday marked the one-year anniversary of Sam’s historical announcement.
