Greg Aiello, who runs media relations for the NFL and is a good guy, sent me this information about a team allegedly asking a draft prospect about his sexual orientation at the Combine. I share it with you:
Lowell: We are in the process of reviewing the matter. Here is the statement we issued after learning of the report:
Like all employers, our teams are expected to follow applicable federal, state and local employment laws. It is league policy to neither consider nor inquire about sexual orientation in the hiring process. In addition, there are specific protections in our collective bargaining agreement with the players that prohibit discrimination against any player, including on the basis of sexual orientation. We will look into the report on the questioning of Nick Kasa at the Scouting Combine. Any team or employee that inquires about impermissible subjects or makes an employment decision based on such factors is subject to league discipline.
