ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A person familiar with talks in a private meeting with New York officials says the NFL agrees to further review its policies to avoid discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the official wasn't authorized to disclose details of the meeting.

NFL officials spoke with representatives from New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office on Tuesday. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the meeting was ``positive and productive'' and the league agreed to continue talks, but already is reviewing its policies.

Schneiderman's office released a statement calling the session a ``productive initial meeting'' and said the NFL is taking the issue seriously.

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.''
