Warriors in the Pros: Colt, Pisa, RGM, Manuwai

Sara Walsh of WUSA9.com has a video profile of Colt Brennan. The story includes interviews with Colt, Clinton Portis and Karen Uemoto, president of the Hawaii alumni association in DC.

On the field, CB had a nice pass during OTAs. From Redskins.com:
The only score of the extended practice session came from the third-team offense, with Colt Brennan completing a pass to a well-covered Marko Mitchell in the end zone for a touchdown.
Pisa Tinoisamoa will have some tough competition for the Bears' starting strong-side linebacker spot.
Even before the Bears added Tinoisamoa, strong-side linebacker was shaping up to be the best positional battle of training camp. Expect the competition this summer to be fierce.

And don't write off Roach, who by all accounts has put together an impressive off-season. The linebacker recently alluded to the experience factor playing a big role in his development since the end of last year.
Of course, Tinoisamoa was an outstanding player in St. Louis, who put up big numbers for the Rams' defense. Also thrown into the mix is the fact that both players are looking to secure long-term contracts after this season. Bottom line, this appears to be the perfect storm for competition, and it should be a good one.
Ryan Grice-Mullen is off to a good start at BC Lions training camp.
Veterans continue to lead the way as Paris Jackson and Ryan Grice-Mullen are in mid-camp form snagging passes all over the field.
The afternoon session was played under sunshine and temperatures in the mid-20’s and also featured a sparkling catches from Geroy Simon as well as Grice-Mullen once again with Korey Banks picking up his first interception of training camp for the boys in black.
And Vince Manuwai continues to make progress in his rehab.
Vince Manuwai has told me he’s “on a mission,” referring to his rehab from knee surgery. I’m happy to report, by the way, that Manuwai has made major strides since mini-camp. When I saw him running at mini-camp, he was clearly dragging his leg. I see none of that now.
