  San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o met with the local Southern California media today and said that he’s excited about this oppurtunity. “I’m really excited to start this new journey in my life in San Diego,” Te’o said, per NFL.com. “(I’m) just excited to help us win a Super Bowl.” He made it clear who he wants to model his career after. “First and foremost it starts with Junior Seau and Ray Lewis,” said Te’o. Te’o says he wants to come in and work hard. “My expectations are just to come in and do what I do,” Te’o said. “And that’s study film, prepare, work hard, and do my best to help this team win.” Te’o says he’s ready to face any backlash he might received from the fake girlfriend hoax. “After the couple months I’ve been through, I’m pretty prepared,” said Te’o. The only problem is that Te’o can’t hide from fans the way he did with the media after his catfishing story broke.       Need NFL Tickets?
