Report: NFL says no wrongdoing in combine interview questions

The National Football League finished its investigation into questions that prospects were asked about their sexual orientation at the scouting combine in February and found their was no wrongdoing in the way the questions were asked, reports CBSSports.com.

The issue came into question when several prospects including Colorado tight end Nick Kasa said they were asked if they had significant others. Kasa said that one team asked, "Do you like girls?"

NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said at the time that those types of questions violated the law, the collective bargaining agreement and player rights.

From CBSSports.com:

"Our review has not established any specific violations," a league spokesman told CBSSports.com, "but we have made it clear to our clubs what is acceptable when interviewing potential players and other job candidates." The league interviewed some of the prospects and many team officials, a source said. The league determined no illegal or inappropriate questions were asked. Thus, no fines will be levied.
