The Bucs are off the hook. The single dumbest question of the NFL Scouting Combine was asked to Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.
“Someone asked me if I wore a g-string or a jock strap when I played,” McCoy told the NFL Network set Monday to disbelief, laughter, and amazement.
Analyst Mike Mayock wanted to know McCoy’s reaction to the question. The affable defender just left his mouth open in a stunned expression.
We heard a few stories in Indianapolis of coaches jokingly messing with players during interviews, but none sounded as creepy as this.
The video of the interview is oddly not yet on NFL.com. That’s probably a coincidence. Or perhaps the league is embarrassed.
