Redskins Duped By Fake Woman

So many NFL imposter stories, so little time. In an incident completely seperate from the Notre Dame Manti Te'o scandal, it seems the Washington Redskins are embroiled in a little case of flase identity of their own. NFL security conducted an investigation into a situation involving a woman, known as Sidney Ackerman, who used pictures of an Internet adult entertainer to establish conversations with members of the team using a twitter account. Ackerman reportedly used the fake twitter identity to message players pictures, and to speak with them as a "diehard" Redskins fan. "You're talking about a lot of guys who are single. I don't fault the guys," the team's director of player development said Wednesday. The fake account has since been deleted.
