During a recent appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio, running back Derrius Guice revealed that a NFL team asked him if he likes men while at the Scouting Combine, which has been confirmed by PFT.
The move has been deemed prejudicial by many, but this isn’t the first time the league has been accused of such acts. PFT reports tight end Nick Kasa was asked if he likes girls by scouts while cornerback Eli Apple was later asked if he likes men while in pre-draft interviews for the Falcons. While the NFL later called the question “disappointing and clearly inappropriate,” some teams clearly still feel sexuality is relevant on their roster.
Do you think the question was inappropriate?
