NFL Labels Questions About Guice's Sexual Orientation 'Completely Inappropriate'

2018 NFL draft Why recent moves won't change Browns plan at No. 1

Two years ago, the Atlanta Falcons' secondary coach, Marquand Manuel, asked Eli Apple, who was eventually drafted by the New York Giants, during the combine if "he liked men".

The NFL's scouting combine brings together the top prospects in the draft, offering them a platform to showcase their athletic skills before team scouts.

"Find out what team did it and ban them from the Combine", NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said.

The NFL has released a statement saying any question about a potential incoming rookie's sexuality is "contrary" to league policy and is "completely inappropriate".

National Football League spokesman Brian McCarthy condemned the alleged line of questioning and told NBC News the National Football League is investigating the incident.

The NFL is looking into Guice's claim, according to spokesperson Brian McCarthy.

Such a question is prohibited under the league's Excellence in Workplace Conduct policy and potentially illegal under state law.

Another NFL hopeful back in 2016 told of being asked if he likes men as the first question in an interview for a prospective team. "And I'll be running a training/clinic in the off-season for coaches and staff to address this issue". In addition, numerous drills the future NFL players participate in at the combine do not directly translate to an actual football game. In 2010, Jeff Ireland, the then-general manager of the Miami Dolphins, asked current Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant if his mother was ever a prostitute during a pre-draft visit. The Falcons haven't been accused of asking similar questions since.

Guice said the question was one of several that were posed in an attempt to see how he would react and if he would get frustrated. One topic that's supposed to be off the table: questions about a player's sexuality. "Is he expecting the guy to get out of his chair and start screaming, 'No, I'm a heterosexual!'?"

Guice announced in January that he'll be leaving LSU to head to the 2018 NFL Draft. He came out about his sexuality after his National Football League career. During Super Bowl Week in Minneapolis this year, Esera Tuaolo, a former NFL player who came out in 2002, partnered with the league to hold an Inclusion Party meant to further LGBT acceptance in football.

"It was like the first thing he asked me".
