Retweet of the Day - March 26, 2013

University of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o experienced a well-publicized fiasco at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis several weeks ago. Reportedly, he ran a 4.9 in the 40-yard dash and then made matters worse by blaming fatigue.

Te’o had his Pro Day this week and according to reports he got his 40 time down to a 4.7, still a bit slow for an NFL linebacker but not as laughable. It is a trickle of positive press to go along with significant unflattering press for Te’o in recent months. First, Te’o looked like he was out of his league in the BCS National Championship Game in January as the Alabama Crimson Tide had their way with him and his defensive teammates. Then reports of Te’o falling for the infamous “catfishing” hoax in which he was led to believe he had an online girlfriend that didn’t really exist. Then the combine debacle….

Today’s retweet blends a little humor with sports news, from Faux Trent Dilfer (@FauxTrentDilfer)

"Manti Te'o reportedly dropped a full second off his 40 time. It's like an invisible weight was lifted off his back..." 

What I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall in his NFL locker room next year.
