Te'o effect: Denard asked about status at NFL Combine

It was obvious Manti Te’o would be asked about his fake girlfriend during last month’s NFL Combine. Other players faced the question, too, according to former Michigan star Denard Robinson. On Monday night’s “Football Report,” Mike Hall asked Robinson about the oddest questions he received at the Combine, and Robinson shared one about relationship status. Watch the exact question now.

Or you can read Robinson’s response right here: “They asked you, ‘Do you have a girlfriend, is it a real girlfriend, how long have you been dating?'”

Guess these NFL franchises can’t be too careful when it comes to doing a complete background/personality checks before investing millions in today’s athletes.

Still, this comes as a bit of a surprise.

Also, on Monday’s show, BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart talked spring football.

And Howard Griffith interviewed Bill O’Brien.
