While Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones reacted with an unfortunately negative tweet about Michael Sam and his boyfriend, far better and more important current and former NFL players and personalities were overwhelmingly positive. It seems many people across the league, including various St. Louis Rams, understand the historic nature of this moment.
