Unfortunately for Manti, he is never ever going to live down his fake dead cancer girlfriend.
It looks like it has also made him a bit paranoid.
manti says when he saw a california area code he thought some of his friends were trying to prank him. can't make this stuff up.

I do believe that the Chargers were a good place for Te’o to land, but the comparisons to Junior Seau are a bit premature at this point.
Most important thing for him is not worried about being the next Seau, but just being the best Manti Te’o he can be.
