Missouri may lack law but NFL says teams must follow its non-discrimination policy

While the state of Missouri lacks a non-discrimination law that applies to sexual orientation, the NFL says it strictly enforces internal rules regarding discrimination in the workplace. U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill expressed concern early last week, after Sam revealed he was gay, that because Missouri is one of 29 states without a non-discrimination law, the Chiefs and St. Louis Rams "both … could legally say they were not hiring Michael Sam because he is gay."
