Notre Dame LB Manti T’eo faced the music at the NFL Combine about his very embarrassing fictitious online relationship. As far as Bills GM Buddy Nix is concerned it won’t affect what they think about T’eo as a player.
“We evaluate that guy as a football player and that’s the way we’re going to do it,” said Nix. ”That situation will probably be mentioned and we’ll let him explain it. But if he’s a good enough player, he made a mistake, it’s not like he’s a criminal. That wouldn’t affect us. He’s a good player. He’s a guy that can come in early and help you. He’s a three down player.”
T’eo has been mocked to the Bills in a couple of draft prognostications with the eighth overall pick.
