NEW YORK (WFAN) — Controversy surrounded the recent NFL Scouting Combine earlier this week when NFL prospect Nick Kasa said in a radio interview that scouts asked him about his sexual orientation.
Prior to the tight end revealing that information, Mike Florio of NBC Sports told radio host Dan Patrick that many teams were curious as to whether or not Manti Te’o was gay. Te’o likely garnered much attention in this department in light of the recent investigation that unearthed that his apparent girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, was in fact not real.READ MORE: Candidate Conversations: Jack Ciattarelli
“Here’s the elephant in the room for the teams, and it shouldn’t matter, but we have to step aside from the rest of reality and walk into the unique industry that is the NFL,” Florio told Patrick. “Teams want to know whether Manti Te’o is gay. They just want to know. They want to know because in an NFL locker room, it’s a different world. It shouldn’t be that way.”
