Human Rights Campaign: NFL not doing enough about Combine questioning
America’s largest gay civil rights organization is criticizing the NFL over inappropriate questions to prospective players at the Scouting Combine.
The Human Rights Campaign released a statement about running back Derrius Guice being asked if he likes men at the Scouting Combine, calling on the league to take more serious actions to ensure such questions are not asked in the future.
The fact that Derrius Guice was asked by an NFL team and a prospective employer about his sexual orientation is absurd and inappropriate, the statement said. With similar incidents already reported, it’s clear that the NFL did not do enough to prevent it from happening again. Guice’s experience illustrates the risks faced by millions of LGBTQ people today in employment, athletics, housing and other areas of their lives.
The Seahawks received an offseason facelift after years of roster decay. One problem remains the same, though. The offensive line still isn’t any good, and the organization hasn’t made any moves of note to improve the trenches.
Isaiah Wynn’s potential addition would help solidify the left side of the Seattle front. With veterans Duane Brown at left tackle and Justin Britt at center, the Seahawks can slide Wynn in at left guard and then worry about the unit’s right side.
Robinson heads into that process after tearing his ACL during the 2017 season and that has certainly will have an impact compensation, location or otherwise on the contract he winds up signing this offseason. Robinson told Adam Schefter of ESPN that working his way back from that injury remains his main priority while he leaves as much hard work as possible on the contract front to his agent.
I just try to keep everything as simple for me as possible, Robinson said. Letting my agent handle most of the work. Me and him talk a lot, especially this time of year you have to be on the same page as him. I’m still doing my rehab stuff, getting better each and every day so that’s my main focus.
Robinson said he expects to be cleared for football work well before the start of training camp. Now he and his agent just need to figure out where he’ll be working this summer.Baker Mayfield sets up visits with Browns, Giants, Jets
