Pro Football Talk would later confirm that Guice was asked if he liked men.

"It was pretty insane", Guice said "Some people are really trying to get in your head and test your reaction".

"I guess he was joking, but they just ask most of these questions to see how you're going to react". I go in one room, and a team will ask me do I like men, just to see my reaction. And I guarantee teams have asked far more controversial questions than this simply to test a prospective player's quick thinking skills.

The NFL expresses disappointment and reminds teams that it has a policy through its Excellence in Workplace Conduct program about team officials asking players such questions.

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

- An NFL prospect said in a radio interview Wednesday that one team official asked him about his sexual orientation. "How do you feel about that?'" One topic that's supposed to be off the table: questions about a player's sexuality.

Guice is projected as a high-round draft pick with strong potential to go in the first round.

"Find out what team did it and ban them from the Combine", Smith said on "PFT Live" Thursday morning. Prodding the 20-year-old about his sexuality is just another addition to the NFL's long history of asking distasteful questions. Manuel later apologized, and Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said the organization took measures to make sure it wouldn't happen again. Apparently back in 2016, the Atlanta Falcons asked former Giants cornerback Eli Apple whether he was gay as well.

That was after tight end Nick Kasa said in 2013 that an National Football League team asked him about his sexual orientation.

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.

"One question was like, if you wanted to kill a guy, would you kill him with a gun or a knife", Mills recalled to CBS.
