Manti Te’o ran a little better on his home field than he did at the NFL combine, lowering his 40-yard time by more than a tenth of a second during Notre Dame’s pro day.

The Heisman Trophy runner-up posted a best time of 4.69, bettering the disappointing mark of 4.82 he put up at the combine in Indianapolis last month.

Te’o says he was pleased by his performance, saying he expected to run faster. Te’o says he’s met with some NFL teams, saying they’ve asked about his highly-publicized online romance that turned out to be a hoax. He says some ask about it briefly, others go more in depth.

In other NFL news: The Raiders signed free agent tackle Alex Barron to a contract. Barron was a first-round pick by St. Louis in 2005. He has played 87 games and has experience at both left and right tackle. ... The Browns signed free agent quarterback Jason Campbell to a two-year contract, bringing the veteran in to provide competition for Brandon Weeden.
