    Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Michael Sam "has got a long way to go" but mentioned Baltimore Ravens star Terrell Suggs and five-time Super Bowl champion Charles Haley when discussing the high-profile practice-squad defensive end's knack for rushing the quarterback.

    The Cowboys signed Sam, the first openly gay NFL player, on Wednesday, days after the seventh-round pick was released by the St. Louis Rams.
