Source: Manti Te'o to interview with Atlanta Falcons

Posted: Updated:

A high-ranking NFL source confirms to FOX 5 that the Atlanta Falcons are among the two teams who will interview Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o at the NFL combine.

Te'o was involved in much-chronicled fake-girlfriend hoax.

Some local fans said they weren't concerned about the linebackers off-the-field drama.

"It doesn't bother me. They need somebody that can play football," said fan Tommy Dorsey. "Defense is what lost the game for us last year, so I just think they need to go after people like that."

Te'o is considered a top prospect for NFL teams. Atlanta Falcons are scheduled to pick number 30 overall, so it could be a longshot he'll still be available to be selected.

Do you think he'd be a good fit for the Falcons? Post your comments below!
