The NFL says it will look into whether questions asked of Colorado tight end Nick Kasa at the combine violated any laws or league policies banning employers from inquiring about a possible employee’s sexual orientation. Kasa said during a recent radio interview that team officials at the combine asked him questions such as: ‘Do you have a girlfriend?’ ‘Are you married?’ ‘Do you like girls?”’

 

Don’t expect to see the Jacksonville Jaguars go after a new quarterback in the NFL Draft or free agency, as the Florida Times-Union says even though there will be a quarterback competition in Jaguars camp, it will likely be Blaine Gabbert’s job to lose.

 

The Detroit Lions have held preliminary extension talks with quarterback Matthew Stafford. As of now, his 2013 cap number sits at $20.8 million.

 

Out of all the prospects who boosted their draft stock at the NFL Scouting Combine, the National Football Post believes West Virginia receiver Tavon Austin got the biggest boost with his performance:

Austin arrived in Indianapolis having to prove he had the elite athleticism to warrant a first round pick in spite of his lack of size. While he did not get any taller, his workout convinced everyone we spoke to that he is the real deal and will no doubt be a big play, game changer in the NFL. Not only impressive athletically, Austin caught the ball excellently and impressed in interviews. After coming to the Combine with questions, Austin heads home as a definite first rounder.
