NFL prospect Jalen Mills was asked by an unnamed team whether he would choose a knife or a gun to kill a person, he told CBS Sports. 

The LSU safety explained that the gun was seen as the better answer because choosing the knife means that a person is “killing for fun because you have to continuously stab someone.”

This is not the first alarming question an NFL prospect has been asked. Earlier this month, former Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple told CSN Philadelphia that the Atlanta Falcons asked him if he liked men.
