GQ magazine has put Michael Sam on the cover of its annual “Men of the Year” issue.
Sam’s interview with the magazine will be rolled out later this week. In the meantime, the athlete tweeted an image of his cover shot:
Sam, who became the first openly gay player to be drafted by the NFL last spring, graces one of six GQ coversreleased as part of the Men of the Year rollout. The 24-year-old shares the honor with “Guardians of the Galaxy” hunk Chris Pratt, Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley of “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Foxcatcher” star Steve Carell, among others.
