Soon after making the decision to make Michael Sam the first openly gay player drafted to the NFL, St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher placed a phone call to an old friend.
Fisher asked Davis to hop on a plane to St. Louis and deliver that message to his team, his coaching staff and the Rams' front-office staff.
Upon arrival in St. Louis, Davis spent about 30 minutes speaking to the players and participating in a question and answer session.
"He's still a seventh-round draft pick so he's got to keep that in mind and to make sure he doesn't get caught up in thinking he's someone who he's not," Davis said.
Davis' stop in St. Louis probably won't be the last such trip he makes to an NFL team facility in the near future.
