The entire Manti Te'o situation, if you step back and look at it in it's most simplistic form, is just some shy, lonely, small town kid that was tricked, he was embarassed, was unsure how to deal with it, and was exposed. His naiveté isn't a crime, and neither was his reluctance to come clean once he realized he was fooled. Questions about whether or not potential teammates will respect him are ludicrous. He'll get joked in his new locker room, there might be a blow up doll or a mannequin involved in a prank, but if he can play football at the NFL level, that's all his teammates will care about.
