The league is investigating whether questions asked by teams at the combine violated league policy to “neither consider nor inquire about” sexual orientation and one general manager has come out to say that his team wasn’t one of the ones asking inappropriate questions.
Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson sent a text to the Indianapolis Star in response to queries about the league’s investigation that made it clear he wasn’t looking for any follow-ups on the matter.
“We didn’t and don’t ask those questions,’’ Grigson wrote. “And that’s all I feel I need to say on it. Got bigger fish to fry right now.”
Colorado tight end Nick Kasa was the first prospect to talk about being asked whether or not he liked girls and we’ve heard from a few others who said they were asked similar questions in recent days. The league’s statement announcing their investigation said that violators would be subject to league discipline, but it’s not known what kinds of actions would await teams found to have violated the policy.
