LSU star: National Football League team asked if 'I liked men' at combine

This Wednesday on a Sirius XM NFL radio, former LSU running back Derius Guice revealed he'd been asked whether he was gay by an NFL team at the Scouting Combine this month.

Running back Derrius Guice says he was asked a host of inappropriate questions at last week's NFL Combine.

"Man, it was pretty insane, bro", Guice said, via Sporting News.

In 2016, cornerback Eli Apple said the Atlanta Falcons asked him if he liked men at the NFL Combine.

It isn't the first time a player has been asked at the Combine about his sexuality. The NFL called the question "disappointing and clearly inappropriate" and said it would look into what happened.

"I'd go in one room and a team would ask me, 'Do I like men?' just to see my reaction", Guice said.

Profootballtalk.com confirmed the question was actually asked. They'd try to bring up one of my family members or somebody and tell me, 'Hey, man, I heard your mom sells herself.

Another year, another National Football League combine season stuffed with dumb, bizarre, inappropriate, and downright offensive questions pitched to players hoping to make their dreams come true. He later apologized and Falcons coach Dan Quinn publicly stated that the team took measures to make sure the incident wouldn't be repeated.

And in 2010, Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver Dez Bryant (who played for Oklahoma State at the time), was asked by Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland if his mother was a prostitute. It is not clear which team or teams are feeling out players for homosexuality, but it is not a new or isolated practice.

An Atlanta Falcons coach asked former Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple whether he is gay during a meeting last week at the National Football League combine.

Guice is expected to be a first-round draft pick after rushing for 26 touchdowns over the past two seasons for LSU.

We'll see how the league reacts in trying to find the perpetrator and whether a stiff enough punishment is given to truly keep another player from having to endure the same experience as Guice.
