I get that he isnt a Browns player, but as someone who has been mocked to the Browns a few times during our offseason I thought this story could spark an interesting conversation. Is this man the victim of some elaborate hoax? I dont think so. I have 2 theories
1: Manti was involved in the Hoax to try and create headlines and increase his popularity/NFL draft stock
2: Manti was having a relationship with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. In the closest due to his attending a catholic university and being a devout Mormon. The girl was their way of communicating in public without it being looked at weird they devised the girlfriend and the back story.
