Will you buy a Michael Sam jersey after he's drafted this weekend by an NFL team? Sam will be the first openly gay player ever drafted by an NFL team, making him the first openly gay active NFL player. When he's drafted it will be an historic moment for the gay community, and many people have said they will buy a Michael Sam jersey no matter where he goes.

We're not sure where he's going to be drafted, though experts say he will be selected anywhere from the third to the seventh round. He could end up on just about any team. Could his landing spot matter when LGBT people are deciding whether or not to buy a Michael Sam jersey? We know it won't matter for us.

What do you plan to do? Take the poll and tell us if you'll buy a Michael Sam jersey from his new team in the week after the NFL Draft.
