Te’o addresses reporters at NFL Combine

INDIANAPOLIS -- Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o faced a long day of questions at the NFL Combine on Saturday: A battery of medical tests first, which all participants go through; then teams and the media asking him about a girlfriend who never existed, the scandalous topic that thrust him into the national news last month.

Te’o claims he was the victim of a hoax, and didn’t know until early December that the girl he thought he had an online and telephone relationship with for a number of years wasn’t real. He answered nearly every question about the situation on Saturday during a 15-minute press conference at the combine, admitting that every team he’s met with has asked him about it, and that he’s looking forward to putting the scandal behind him and move on to football.
