Manti Te'o explains to reporters why they are not real
 
It appears Manti Te'o has come a long way-- perhaps too far. After drawing the praise of veteran teammates for making a seamless transition into the Chargers locker room, Te'o is really turning heads by questioning whether or not said teammates even exist. 

“Whoa,” said San Diego fullback Le’Ron McClain, clearly wowed by the notion that nothing is real nor will ever be the same, “you’re not going to put one over on old Manti this time around."

Since his arrival at OTAs, the Chargers have done everything in their power to shield their 2nd round draft pick from the crush of the media. Not only has this allowed Te'o to recede deeper into his shell of isolation but his approach to the game is having a profound effect on some of his more impressionable teammates.

"He's not taking anything for granted these days," explained fellow rookie Keenan Allen, now fully convinced that everything he once knew is a fallacy. "Manti's showing us that we just need to work our butts off in practice, know our assignments, and understand that the entire Universe is probably just the dream of a giant metaphorical serpent in the sky." 

In a statement issued through a handwritten letter in a bottle Te’o has thanked his teammates for their support in these very confusing times.
