Nick Kasa, a tight end from Colorado hoping to be drafted by the NFL this spring, went to the scouting combine the other day to get timed in the 40, jump vertically and horizontally, get in as many bench press reps as possible and be asked about his sexuality.
"They ask you like, 'Do you have a girlfriend? Are you married? Do you like girls?' Those kinds of things, and you know, it was just kind of weird," Kasa told ESPN Radio Denver, via ProFootballTalk, on Tuesday. "But they would ask you with a straight face, and it's a pretty weird experience altogether."
Pretty weird, indeed. Invasive and unacceptable also are adjectives that would apply. And there's one more word that works even better: Illegal.
