Let Sam do things on his own terms.
I honestly think he'll have a tough time cracking their 53 man out of camp. He's a fringe talent with really no true position to play in the NFL which some times gets lost in translation when discussing the possibility of Sam not making a roster. If he does indeed make the team & plays for multiple seasons in this league than that's a good success story for Sam.

As for your other point above about Ray Rice unfortunately people whether it be fans, teammates, organization members, league officials, etc. are a lot more accepting when you're a top talent in this league.

For whatever reasons people like to pile on guys like Sam or Tebow for being gay or being a devout Christian. Yeah they're not really good NFL talents & carry a lot of unwarranted hype thanks to the media but they're not hurting anyone with what they do in the personal lives unlike some other players in the league.
