WitP: Josh Leonard, Colt, Bess, Pisa, Elam

Stephen Tsai writes that former UH defensive tackle Josh Leonard has signed with the Tampa Bay Bucs. The Pewter Report has some details.
The Bucs signed defensive end Josh Leonard and cornerback Jamar Love, and released wide receiver Darnell Jenkins, who signed to the team's practice squad last week.

The 6-foot-3, 305-pound Leonard spent the offseason, training camp and preseason with the Houston Texans. He notched 33 sacks in two years at Sierra JUCCO, where he was an All-American. Leonard notched 4.5 sacks in two seasons (26 games) at Hawaii.
Matt Terl of the Redskins Blog talks to Colt Brennan about Easy Bake ovens and his rehab from surgery.
But one Redskins quarterback was happy to admit that he was a big fan of the Easy-Bake.

"Dude, I had two sisters," Colt Brennan said. "Now, I don't wanna say that I HAD an Easy-Bake oven, but I HAVE baked with the Easy-Bake oven. And it tasted good."

"They're making more stuff now," Leslie Daniels (wife of Phillip) added, "like chocolate cake, and sugar cookies. Cupcakes. And now they're making real food, like little pizzas, tortillas, all variety of foods that you can put in there."

"I can't imagine," Brennan said, shaking his head in seemingly genuine astonishment. "When I grew up, it was like brownie and chocolate chip cookies. That was it. Now? The possibilities are endless. I saw kids buying Legos today that I wanted to buy. I had the ranch and the horses and the castles, but the stuff they got going today is unreal."

(Brennan also said that he's rehabbing on schedule and looking forward to getting back on the field this offseason. Let me head off the inevitable comments by reminding people that he's STILL on injured reserve and thus STILL unavailable to play this season.)
CBS football analyst Steve Tasker insults every Miami Dolphins receiver, except one.
Tasker, who worked Sunday's game for CBS, said he likes what he's seen of Chad Henne and would like to see the Dolphins put the game in his hands more than they have.

"They have to face the fact they have to open (the offense) up a little bit, to try to cultivate more of a big-play mentality. Of course, I don't know how much you can do when you've got Ted Ginn Jr. and Brian Hartline as your top receivers.

"I do like Davone Bess a lot. But the other three (Ginn, Hartline and Greg Camarillo) are guys (opponents) don't worry about."
Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel had this tweet about Bess' 3rd down production:
Dolphins WR Davone Bess is the second best in the NFL in third down receiving. He's caught 23 passes for 183 yards. Behind NY's Steve Smith
The Bears have finally placed Pisa Tinoisamoa on injured reserve. He suffered a season-ending knee injury back in October.

And D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution bids farewell to Jason Elam.
Farewell to Jason Elam.

He was a consummate professional to the media while with the Falcons. He didn’t run and hide in the cafeteria just because things weren’t going perfectly.

Even on Sunday, when he knew he’d played his last game for the Falcons, he talked the AJC’s Ken Sugiura.

“You always feel pressure,” Elam said. “I feel pressure in practice. If you don’t feel pressure, it’s a sign you don’t really care and you need to get out.”
