A documentary series that was set to feature Micheal Sam, the first openly gay NFL player, has been postponed.
The Oprah Winfrey Network planned to follow Sam’s journey, after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams.
The postponement came after meetings with the team.
Sam’s agent says this will allow him to focus on football and ensure that there are no distractions to his teammates.
The league said it had no knowledge of the project before the draft.
