    Sounds about right.

    • Was named a team captain for the Chargers. Pretty cool.

      • Glad he's found his way in the NFL. Sucks that his ND legacy will always be tainted by the girlfriend fiasco, but I'm glad to see him represent the university well

        • Fear is that he tore his Achilles, if MRI confirms, he's out for the year. Tough break, get well soon Manti!

                  • Manti is a FA and is visiting the Saints with a view to signing with them.

                        As of right now, it sounds like he's slated to be a 2-down starter for the Saints to open the season. He started camp pretty slowly but local reports have picked up a little more buzz on him lately. After the Chargers game, there's a lot of buzz about a starting lineup of Manti, AJ Klein, and (wait for it) Alex Anzalone.

                                        I'd be interested to know about what injuries he's had that we don't know about. He was a team captain just a few years ago.

                                        Funnier than you in 2012.

                                          Any idea what that pays him? Is it a weekly contract?

                                              He did tear his achilles in 2016. He played a pretty full season in 2017 but that can't be helping with the aging curve.

He told me he wanted to explain his reasons for backing out of our scheduled interview. "Your story is your film. It's not mine," Te'o said. "The other project, I would be the star of the beginning, the middle and the finish ... I want to be the star.

                                                                                Maybe this helps him stick with them next year or it gets him on a roster somewhere else. He turns 30 in a few weeks so the miles are starting to add up.
                                                                                It is no coincidence that the growth of modern tyrants has in every case been heralded by the growth of prejudice.
