Mizzou TE Eric Waters calls out 'proud' Sam teammates on Twitter
With most of the Mizzou family offering support to Michael Sam for his public declaration that he is gay, one Tiger teammate offered a different perspective. Former Mizzou tight end Eric Waters used Twitter to basically call many teammates hypocritical for their show of support. And he hasn't backed down in subsequent tweets.
Eric Waters (right) tweeted that many of the same teammates offering public support of Michael Sam had spoken badly of him behind his back.
Sam's announcement came in advance of the NFL Scouting Combine later this month. He led the SEC in sacks (11 1/2) and tackles for loss (19) last season and is projected by many scouts to be a mid-round draft pick.
