Michael Sam, Felix Jones, Michael Bush at vets combine

AP Pro Football Writer

Michael Sam is among more than 100 players invited to the first NFL veterans' combine, set for March 22 at the Arizona Cardinals' practice facility.

Sam, the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team, was cut by St. Louis at the end of training camp last year. He then joined the Dallas practice squad before being released.

The defensive end from Missouri has said he wants to continue his football career. He currently is a contestant on "Dancing With The Stars."

Among other players invited are running backs Felix Jones and Michael Bush, and defensive ends Jamaal Anderson and Adam Carriker.
