The NFL combine includes more than just watching football players jump and run. It also involves a large question and answer session with journalists as well as interviews with team officials. Sports Illustrated reported on Feb. 27 that inappropriate NFL sex questions in those interviews are now being investigated.
One of the players who received the inappropriate question was Colorado Buffalos' tight end Nick Kasa. NFL policies and laws prohibit employers from asking about a prospective employee's sexual orientation. Kasa explained in an interview with ESPN radio the kinds of questions teams ask.
Among the questions he said the team officials ask players, he said they wanted to know if the players have a girlfriend, are married or like girls at all.
The NFL said they are looking into these NFL sex questions and takes this matter very seriously. This especially takes a serious light concerning the fact that Manti Te'o is entering the NFL after a huge scandal that involved a fake girlfriend and accusations questioning his sexual orientation. The NFL said any team official that asked those questions faces discipline from the league.
NFL players association head DeMaurice Smith spoke up about the situation and said he knows the NFL frowns on this and believes they will make sure to address it with the teams involved.
