To guard against another Miami Dolphins bullying scandal, NFL teams are holding sensitivity sessions during training camp.

Such guidance could be valuable for St. Louis Rams players, even if by all accounts they've welcomed Michael Sam into the fold.

As far as Sam goes, there has been no dissent in camp whatsoever regarding the NFL's first openly gay player.
