WitP: Ulbrich, LP, Bess, McBriar

Mindi Bach of CSN California has a video interview with retiring 49ers linebacker Jeff Ulbrich:

Paul Radley of The National profiles Leonard Peters.
His rise has been steep. It is just five months since he was first encouraged to pick up a rugby ball, yet he will already be playing his second international competition with the USA sevens side when they kick off the second leg of the IRB series in South Africa today.

Any opponents planning to pick him up on his style choices, such as the black nail-polish on his thumbs, would be better advised to think again.

He may be a rugby novice, but his skills on defence are already “beyond exceptional”, according to his coach Al Caravelli, which is a relic of his days playing as a safety in the NFL. It was the destructive side of rugby which first attracted him to the game.
Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel profiles Davone Bess.
Work hard. Get better every day. Stay humble. Be patient. Be thankful.

Those are the five mantras that hang prominently on a sheet of notebook paper that sits on the left wall of Davone Bess' locker.

These daily instructions have been there since he made the Miami Dolphins roster as an undrafted rookie last season, and he constantly goes over them.

They serve as a constant reminder of where he's come from, and what's enabled this former Hawaii standout to find his niche as an NFL slot receiver.
And it looks like Tony Romo is taking back the holder position from Mat McBriar.
"I'd prefer not to do it, I think, for obvious reasons," Romo said Thursday.
Uh oh.
