07:02 AM ET 05.28 | The Chargers have kept Manti Te'o under wraps from the media, which has left his teammates to do the talking. Fullback Le'Ron McClain revealed to SiriusXM NFL Radio that Te'o's transition to the Chargers' locker room has been seamless so far. "I don't think there will be anything like hazing," McClain said. "The guy came in, and he's been working since he stepped on the field." ... He's caught everybody's eye to see that he's a great player." Like any rookie, Te'o is sure to be the object of his fair share of ribbing this summer. At this point, though, it's his play on the field that will determine whether he gains the veterans' respect. He's off to a good start in organized team activities. "The sky's the limit for him," McClain added.

Are hers real?

McClain is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Maybe he was talking about someone else.

Maybe he's talking about Te'o, but hasn't actually seen him around the facility, yet.

Maybe the dead girfriend was real, and Te'o is imaginary?

THe Chargers have banned Te'o from talking to the press so he can concentrate on football. So Manti has resorted to talking to an imaginary press corp.
