Goodell: combine sex question "unacceptable''
PHOENIX - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell calls it "unacceptable" to ask a college player at the scouting combine any questions about his sexual orientation.
Several players indicated they were asked such questions, and the New York attorney general has urged the NFL to investigate. Goodell says the league will make clear to the team at this week's owners meetings "what they can ask and what they can't."
By doing so, Goodell says Monday, "I hope that'll solve the problem."
Goodell and executives from all 32 teams are meeting later in the day, and he says that will be a primary topic.
Michigan quarterback-turned-receiver Denard Robinson, Colorado tight end Nick Kasa and Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell indicated they were asked about their sexual orientation at the combine in Indianapolis.
