NFL agrees to new measures to protect gay athletes


ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says he has reached agreement with the NFL to better protect gay players from harassment and discrimination.
Schneiderman announced Tuesday night that the NFL will promote what the Democrat calls a "culture of inclusion" for gay players. The deal includes hanging posters in the locker room that underscore the NFL's anti-discrimination policies.
There was no immediate comment from the NFL.
After the NFL combine in February, three prospective draft picks said officials asked questions relating to their sexual orientation, which could have violated law. The NFL said it found no "specific violations."
