An NFL Team Asked a Draft Prospect About His Sexual Orientation During the Combine This WeekJohn David Mercer/USA Today Sports

Earlier this week, we told you about how some NFL teams have reportedly been digging around to try and find out if Manti Te'o is gay. But, it sounds like Te'o isn't the only NFL prospect who has had his sexual orientation called into question during the NFL Combine this week. During an interview on ESPN Radio yesterday, Colorado tight end Nick Kasa revealed that he was also subjected to a series of questions about his sexual orientation by at least one NFL team.

"They ask you like, 'Do you have a girlfriend? Are you married? Do you like girls?'" Kasa said. "Those kinds of things, and, you know, it was just kind of weird. But, they would ask you with a straight face, and it's a pretty weird experience altogether."

It definitely sounds like it. It also sounds like it might be illegal. Your move, NFL.
