The Dallas Cowboys released defensive end Michael Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, another setback as the NFL's first openly gay player tries to make an active roster during the regular season for the first time.

The Dallas Cowboys replaced Michael Sam with linebacker Troy Davis of Central Florida and defensive tackle Ken Bishop of Northern Illinois on their practice squad.

Former Suns guard and NBA executive Rex Chapman was arrested Friday and accused of shoplifting more than $14,000 in Apple merchandise from a retail store in Scottsdale.
Chapman’s mug shot is shown above on left.
He is shown in a Phoenix Suns game at right.
Apple Store employees told police that Chapman picked up items in the store and made it appear that he was paying for them using a self-checkout system via iPhone app. He would then leave the store without actually paying for the items, they said.
Chapman allegedly took the items to a local pawn shop and sold them for cash.
Los Angeles, the second-largest media market in the country, has two each of the other major professional sports teams within its metro area, but it hasn’t had a professional football team since 1994, when the Rams and Raiders left.
December 24, 1994 was the day football died in Los Angeles
The Raiders walked off the field at the L.A. Coliseum at 4:02 p.m. after a 19–9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Five minutes later, 35 miles away, the Rams walked off the field at Anaheim Stadium after a 24–21 loss to the Washington Redskins.
The Los Angeles area hasn’t hosted an NFL game since that day.
Over the past 20 years, teams have regularly threatened to relocate to Los Angeles, including the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and St. Louis Rams.
The possibility of a move can often be followed by local governments agreeing to pay for new stadiums.
It's a game they play and it works - threaten to move to Los Angeles and their own city builds them a new stadium.

10 years ago, Phelps was arrested. also in Maryland. for the same charges at the age of 19. Two-time offenders of Maryland’s DUI policy can be sentenced to up to two years in prison.
The DUI’s, along with the famous marijuana bong smoking photo, make Phelps one of the worst possible examples to young people.
