Te'o thinks he's 'pretty prepared' for NFL

After dealing with the commotion over his fake online girlfriend and his flop in the national championship game, Manti Te'o believes he's ready for the NFL.

That includes being mentally tough enough for the verbal abuse he'll surely hear in places like Oakland and Philadelphia, the San Diego Chargers' first road game next season. Te'o said Saturday that he's been through a lot and he's ready.

The Chargers' rookie brain trust, general manager Tom Telesco and coach Mike McCoy, said they weren't bothered by the scrutiny Te'o has been under the last four months. The Chargers traded up in the second round to pick the Notre Dame linebacker, who was the Heisman Trophy runner-up.
