The Cowboys plan to bring Michael Sam to Dallas for a physical tomorrow, ESPN is reporting this afternoon.

If all goes well, Sam will be a Cowboy, signed to the team's practice squad, according to ESPN.

Sam, a seventh-round draft choice, was cut by the St. Louis Rams on Saturday. He was drafted in the seventh round of this year's draft by St. Louis after becoming the first NFL-draftee-to-be to publicly acknowledge that he is gay, following his collegiate career at the University of Missouri.
