Hey Guys, #StandWithSam and #SamStrong gear is finally available at http://t.co/8eA9jfcnOxIt didn't take long for Michael Sam to do what any sensible person would do when finding newfound fame. And that is to cash in by launching his own line of merchandise.

Sam, who is set to become the first openly gay man to play in the NFL once he gets selected in the upcoming draft, has apparently launched a new website that features t-shirts, buttons, and other knick-knack items for sale. Some of the merchandise features such slogans as "Stand With Sam" and "#SamStrong" accompanied by the use of the rainbow flag. Additionally, majority of the items come in black, white, and gold, which just so happens to be his old college colors at Missouri.
To be fair, a portion of the proceeds will go toward helping at-risk youth in the St. Louis area. But it's safe to assume Sam's recent announcement of his sexual orientation is primed to pad his pockets nicely as well.
Hey, strike while the iron is hot, as they say.
