Bills admit they’ll ask Manti Te’o about his fake girlfriend

Buffalo Bills assistant general manager Doug Whaley told the Buffalo News that they plan on asking former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o about the hoax that tricked him into thinking he had a girlfriend.

“Everybody’s going to ask him about that drama, but it’s just going to be a piece of the puzzle,” Whaley said. “We’ll treat it independently, just like we’ll treat the other 59 guys who might have issues or might not have issues.

“This is one of the things we’re here for, to fact-find about all that stuff. … We’ll try to get as much information as possible out of it.”

The Bills recently released linebacker Nick Barnett and are probably looking for an upgrade.
