The National Football League is investigating whether draft prospect Nick Kasa was questioned about his sexual orientation during a recent skills audition for NFL scouts and coaches, a spokesman said Wednesday.
League policy states that teams "neither consider nor inquire about sexual orientation in the hiring process," Aiello said. "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."
Regardless, the story has raised eyebrows about the NFL selection process.
This morning on "Starting Point," fmr. NFL player Wade Davis, who revealed he was gay after leaving the league, and sports agent Drew Rosenhaus weigh in on the story and whether a player's sexual orientation should be taken into consideration during tryouts.
