Former Arizona Cardinals fullback Reagan Mauia added even more confusion to the story of Manti Te’o's fake girlfriend on Wednesday night when he claimed to have met the non-existent young lady, Lennay Kekua. Like most of the details that have emerged since Deadspin broke the major story, Mauia’s recollection of how and when he met Kekua makes little sense. In addition to describing Kekua as a beautiful young woman who “looked like a model,” Mauia also mentioned that he met her in 2011 when he and some other players went to do charity work in American Samoa. One of the players that ESPN.com said he mentioned was Troy Polamalu, but Mauia took to Twitter on Thursday morning to insist that the Steelers safety has nothing to do with the bizarre story. Troy Polamalu did not meet Lennay or knew of her @ all. He’s being unfairly dragged into this & has absolutely no involvement. — Reagan Maui’a (@Reagan_Mauia45) January 17, 2013 Polamalu retweeted Mauia’s tweet to his followers, so clearly he is concerned about having his name associated with what has become one of the most insane stories in sports history. Mauia also asked that people leave the Cardinals out of it, since he is no longer with the team. And for the record, I am a free agent now. Leave the entire @azcardinals organization out of this. They don’t deserve to be dragged into it — Reagan Maui’a (@Reagan_Mauia45) January 17, 2013 The fact that Mauia mentioned Polamalu’s name and is now insisting he had nothing to do with it makes his side of the story even less credible.
