Future players with a felony conviction will not be invited to NFL Scouting Combine

The NFL will no longer allow players with convictions for domestic violence, sexual assault or weapons offenses to attend the annual scouting combine in Indianapolis.

NFL teams were informed of this policy change in a memo from the NFL’s executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent late last month.

According to USA Today, a player will be banned from “any league-related event” if a background check turns up a felony or misdemeanor conviction. Players that refuse to submit to a background check will also be uninvited.
