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.
