[May 12, 2014]  May 11 (The Sports Xchange) - Miami Dolphins safety Don Jones called the drafting of Michael Sam "horrible" and immediately received sharp disapproval from the team.

Sam is the first openly gay player to be selected in a NFL Draft. Television cameras showed Sam kissing his boyfriend after the former Missouri star received a phone call from the Rams.

"I was made aware of it and I was disappointed in those comments," Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey said Saturday night. "We're going to sit down with Don Jones and address (the tweet) appropriately."
