According to TMZ, Sam danced to Michael Jackson's "Rock With You" and was later approached by security to cover up.

In an interview with ESPN's "Outside the Lines" on Sunday, Sam said, "I am an openly, proud gay man." Sam said, "I understand how big this is," he said. "It's a big deal. No one has done this before. And it's kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be ... I want to be a football player in the NFL."

Sam added, that once revealing the news to his teammates, he wanted to officially go public with the news, "I didn't realize how many people actually knew, and I was afraid that someone would tell or leak something out about me," he said. "I want to own my truth. ... No one else should tell my story but me."
