After matriculating, Sam was recruited by Northern Illinois University, where he continued with his playing career. He was a part of one of the best wide receiver groups in the MAC alongside Shatone Powers, Dan Sheldon, and P. J. Fleck. Though his receiving capabilities weren’t used much until his senior year, due to the team’s reliance on running offense and then in his senior year, Sam caught 65 passes for 1,074 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. He finished his college career with outstanding numbers; he had 143 receptions, 2,323 yards and 21 receiving touchdown.

He declared for the 2006 NFL Draft, but after he was left undrafted, he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys, which marked the start of his professional career and his net worth. In his rookie season, Sam played in 15 games, two of which were starts and he caught five passes for 75 yards and scored one touchdown, but was annulled due to offensive pass interference against Patrick Crayton. Sam was also used on special teams, and as a result he forced and recovered two fumbles.

The following season was much better for Sam; he played in all 16 games but again started only two, but his numbers greatly improved. He caught 19 passes, including for a touchdown, and had 314 receiving yards, which would turn out to be his career-high.

He returned for the next season but was used more on special teams, which resulted in making 19 special teams tackles, and he also caught one touchdown and had 121 receiving yards. Thanks to his successful plays as part of the special teams, he was again put on special teams quite often during the 2010 season, and was also named as special teams captain for the season.
