NFL is expected to find no improprieties in Derrius Guice case

After the Scouting Combine, former LSU running back Derrius Guice claimed that he was asked by a team in Indianapolis whether he likes men, and whether his mom is a prostitute. The claims sparked a league investigation, which has included among other things multiple conversations with Guice.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the league has found inconsistencies in Guice’s version of the events, and the league has been unable to corroborate his claims or to identify the team(s) that asked the questions.

While it’s unclear whether the league eventually will conclude that Guice was mistaken or lying, at least one team employee who has interacted with Guice was and still is convinced that Guice made it up.

It’s unclear when the investigation will be concluded, and whether any specifics will be released publicly. For now, however, it appears that the league will clear its various teams on this one.

  1. So now he is either a psycho or there is a league coverup. Since the last time this happened, the teams involved were named.

    Still don’t know why one would want to be front and center in an obvious lie but we all know someone like this. Still could be the other but I guess we will never really know.

  2. “or to identify the team(s) that asked the questions.”
    ——————————————–
    You have got to be kidding me. He cannot identify the team or the person who asked him the questions?

  3. So if he’s told multiple versions he’s lied. Not that the questions bother me because they don’t.

  4. I dont find this surprising mostly because these are the most famous questions that everyone knows you shouldnt ask anyone at the combine.

    It seems highly unlikely that that a team would step in it so much that they asked him BOTH of these questions.

  5. Would you point out a potential employer, who’ll pay you millions? I wouldn’t until after the draft. Gotta secure the bag first. He knows who said it.

    Who cares anyway? It is a character test. Put one of these guys through Marine boot camp.
    ====================

    As a veteran from a family of veterans whose service dates back the Civil War, I have never heard a veteran say something like this. I have heard lots of barstool talkers who never worked quietly and strenuously for their country talk like this to try to associate themselves with the military.

    Either way, before or after the draft, he is a liar if he now identifies a team. IF the question was asked, 31 teams know they did not ask it, but, have had their reputations dragged down with the aspersions. Who wants to hire a guy that just caused an investigation that was triggered by going to the press and casting questions about your integrity, probably to get his name in the news?
    I say this will cost him perhaps millions of dollars in his career.

  8. ESPN made this front page news when it fit their agenda. I doubt they’ll do the same with the follow up.

    I can honestly say that I heard stuff from my DI that pales in comparison to this: Comments at the top of his lungs, two inches from my face, about my Mother, my sisters, what he was going to do to my body sexually, etc. Not only me, but, every person in my platoon. Of course that was 50 years ago before they prohibited those type of threats.

  10. This one called me a name but I can’t temember what it was. This team asked me this but I can’t remember which team. League is full of idiots

  11. Why are we talking like this isn’t something an NFL team would do when it happened just two shorts drafts ago (Eli Apple). And three drafts before that (Nick Kasa) and three drafts before that(Dez Bryant).

  12. I’m an LSU fan, and I will say I’ve found Guice to have questionable judgment and talk a little too much. So it wouldn’t surprise me to find out he made it up.

  13. I can’t say if he lied or not. My question is: what could he possibly stand to gain from this?

    Congratulations, Derrius…you’ve had a massive red flag hoisted above your head.

    He probably considers it “laying the groundwork.” Maybe he figures he doesn’t really want to work at this football thing, so he can coast a couple seasons and then when he’s out of the league he can pull a Kaepernick.

    –I’ve heard bar stool talkers make the same statements as well. Just saying.

    The NFL ALWAYS finds what it expects to find….even before any investigation has commenced
    ========================

    Has there been an investigation during Goodell’s tenure that didn’t work out the way the league expected it to?

  17. Well you just dropped 2 rounds, or possibly OUT of the Draft.. As everybody knows here it is collusion among the teams and it is THEIR fault.. This guy is poison.

  18. Where is his guidance from his agent? We all know teams ask dumb questions. I was told if it was something you thought was inappropriate don’t answer the answer the question. When the media asks if any team asked you anything that was strange, just say no. This all should have been covered during his pre combine workouts. Its called Draft Prep!! It’s way more then just running and jumping. Now you look like a liar and the league will just cover it up while you slide down draft the board.

  19. No need to air this before he gets drafted and signed, even if it did touch a nerve with him. What he stands to lose now not only financially but the fact that he cannot specify the team responsible makes him look at best, an exaggerator at worst a liar. I don’t know what he was planning on exposing here, I mean you are interviewing for a job in the most barbaric of sports where players exchange in unsavory banter all the time. If anything, he exposed himself as a snitch. Not good.

  20. Guice by all reports is a good kid. He has no off field issues in the past that I can find. I believe him. He might be hesitant to say who asked the stupid questions after thinking about the repercussions of tattling.

  21. What would a high draft pick get by making this up? clearly this is a NFL cover up and you can expect this type of questioning to continue in the future….to be honest, did anyone expect the league office to do a good thorough job of investigating nope….thanks Roger

    I would have thought that the NFL league office would lost the benefit of the doubt long ago, but some bozos just keep believing.

  23. How can the NFL handle this case so quickly and yet we are still awaiting the completing of the investigation into the Colts failure to report Andrew Luck’s broken ribs and lacerated kidney back in 2015?

  24. Really makes no sense to lie about it …..Do I think he was asked exactly what he says he was asked ? Absolutely, do I think he regretted saying anything about it and thought better after the fact ….yes …. I think he will earn a badge of honor for not ratting and taking the heat …..he can in no way be forced to elaborate on what happened , he did not have to comply with questions by NFL security and simply could have taken the stance of …..I was asked so many questions by so many teams I cant remember which team it was that asked me the questions …….This is a hell of lot more feasible then he lied about ……all he had to gain in this scenario was….. nothing ….rat out the team your a snitch and you alienated old school GM’s or Coaches, realizing you should have never opened your mouth about the questions asked in private and then looking bad in the eyes of fans or the public that think you lied about it would go a long way with me if I had a say in drafting him .
