Marker Summer strategies [11:22 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'Just what is it about Shawn Bryson that makes you drool at times, and wonder what he’s thinking at other times? He’s got size, great speed, fair hands as a pass receiver, and he’s improving at picking up blitzes. As I see it, Donahoe and Gregg Williams aren’t convinced Bryson is a guy they can win with. He’s not an instinctive runner, often missing holes and running poor pass routes.'

Shout! reports: Riemersma said he is going to play under his current contract. Tom Donahoe said that Riemersma's agent Jack Wirth stated to him, "There is nothing to talk about." Donahoe seemed a bit put-off by the negotiations.
