Former LSU running back Derrius Guice said that one team used last week’s NFL Combine to ask him if he liked men, with another asking if his mother was a prostitute.

Guice talked about his experience on the SiriusXM NFL show Late Hits on Wednesday night. As transcribed by USA Today:

“It was pretty crazy. Some people are really trying to get in your head and test your reaction... I go in one room, and a team will ask me do I like men, just to see my reaction. I go in another room, they’ll try to bring up one of my family members or something and tell me, ‘Hey, I heard your mom sells herself. How do you feel about that?’”


Pro Football Talk has reported that an independent source confirmed a team did ask about Guice’s sexuality.

This is only the latest in a tradition of deeply stupid questioning at the combine.
