The Atlanta Falcons have released statements regarding the “inappropriate” question asked to former Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple at the NFL Combine.
Apple stated last week that he was asked, “So, do you like men?” by a Falcons’ coach during an interview with the team at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Ind.
The Falcons released a statement apologizing for the question and, today, released a couple of follow-up statements from head coach Dan Quinn and assistant coach Marquand Manuel, who asked the question.
