In a SportsCenter segment on Tuesday, ESPN reporter Josina Anderson was asked if Michael Sam would make the St. Louis Rams roster cut based on his performance on the field and how he was fitting in with the team. Unexpected by anyone, she responded by reporting on Sam’s showering habits in the locker room with teammates.

In her reporting she said, “Another Rams defensive player told me that ‘Sam is respecting our space’ and that, from his perspective, he seems to think that Michael Sam is kind of waiting to take a shower, as not to make his teammates feel uncomfortable.”
