Manti Te’o Wins Back Support During 2013 NFL Combine Press Conference

INDIANAPOLIS — It’s hard to resist cracking jokes at the expense of Manti Te’o, but it’s even harder not to be impressed with the job he did handling the biggest crowd in combine history when he stepped to the podium on Saturday.

The full details of Te’o’s story are already out there. He didn’t have to navigate any tricky storylines. All he had to do was be honest and boring for about 15 minutes and then get the hell out of Dodge. He managed to do just that and helped push his narrative back onto the football field.

“The incident, I said all I needed to say about that,” Te’o said. “How I’m handling it going forward is focusing on the moment, focusing on football and the combine. Not everyone gets the opportunity to be here.”
