Cartoon pokes fun at Manti Te'o

By Bill Williamson

A cartoonist at the U-T San Diego is having a little fun in welcoming Manti Te’o to town.

The San Diego Chargers took the polarizing Notre Dame linebacker in the second round of the draft. Te’o was involved in a bizarre hoax that centered on a dead girlfriend who never existed.

My advice to Te’o: Grin and bear it. It will go away at some point.

In other AFC West notes:

In an Insider piece, ESPN analyst Bill Polian likes the addition of running back Montee Ball in Denver. He was the team’s second-round pick.

Former Oakland assistant coach Randy Hanson was convicted of felony battery stemming from a assault last summer. Hanson is most remembered for accusing former Oakland coach Tom Cable of choking him during a training camp meeting four years ago. Charges were never field against Cable.

In an Insider piece, Todd McShay looks at his favorite and least favorite drafts picks for AFC West team.
