Former LSU star running back Derrius Guice said Wednesday night on SiriusXM NFL Radio that NFL teams asked him at the Scouting Combine if he likes men and if his mother is a prostitute.
The comments were first reported by Pro Football Talk.
The NFL has called such questions "clearly inappropriate" in the past and said anyone asking such questions would be subject to discipline, the report said.
It was not clear who or which team asked Guice the question. Late Wednesday, USAToday reported some of Guice's comments:

"It was pretty crazy," Guice said. "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?’ "
Inappropriate questions directed at prospective players have plagued the NFL for years. In 2010, former Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant, visiting the Miami Dolphins for a pre-draft workout, was reportedly asked by a team official if his mom was a prostitute.
New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple, in 2016, and Oakland Raiders tight end Nick Kasa, in 2015, were both reportedly asked about their sexual orientation when they attended the combines.
INDIANAPOLIS — Derrius Guice's message to NFL teams this week is simple.
Derrius Guice knows all about the criticism surrounding his pass-catching ability; he also knows it's all wrong.
