The Atlanta Falcons head coach has scolded one of his assistants for asking a draft prospect if he’s gay.
Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple talked to Comcast SportsNet about weird questions he answered during the recent NFL combine.
"The Falcons coach, one of the coaches, was like, 'So do you like men?'" Apple said. "It was like the first thing he asked me. It was weird because I was like, ‘No.’ And he was like, 'If you're going to come to Atlanta, you've got to know that’s how it is sometimes out here. You've got to get used to it.'"
