FISHING FOR DEALS: PRO FOOTBALL TALK's Mike Florio cited a source as saying that reps of former Notre Dame LB Manti Te’o were "attempting aggressively to nail down marketing deals before the story broke" about his fictitious girlfriend. Te'o's associates were pursuing deals with "among other things major shoe and apparel companies." There was "reluctance to proceed, given Te’o's struggles in the BCS national title game and the uncertainty as to whether he’ll be playing for a high-profile team or a franchise that is an NFL afterthought" (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 1/29).
