On several previous occasions, NFL teams have asked grossly inappropriate questions to incoming players. In the most recent example of the phenomenon, the NFL concluded that this was not the case.
The NFL has now officially completed the investigation after the former LSU ran back Derrius Guice said during a SiriusXM NFL radio interview that he was asked during the scouting Combine interviews if he likes men.
The League has published the following statement : "After reports of the interviews of Derrius Guice at the Scout Combine, the League conducted a thorough investigation, a formal review and a report from each club, to Mr. Guice While the investigation has not confirmed that any club has made the reported investigations, we nonetheless took advantage of this opportunity to reaffirm our workplace standards and stress the importance of doing so is to comply with all federal and state law requirements, and the NFL and each of its member clubs remain fully committed to fair and non-discriminatory employment practices. "
PFT reported on April 6 that the NFL would come to this conclusion. The league we were explaining at that time had found inconsistencies in Guice's version of the events, and the league had been unable to confirm his allegations or identify the team (s) that were asking the questions.
The NFL was also worried about publicly branding Guice as a liar, which explains the Ultra Vanilla language of the bulk of the publication: "The investigation did not confirm that any club had made the requests reported."
Last week, Guice confirmed that he had held several discussions with NFL Security regarding the situation.
