Despite that, his physical tools and arm strength might intrigue a team that is willing to be patient in bringing him along. … Bridge has a local connection in that he was heavily recruited to the University at Buffalo before Turner Gill left the program. … Started his college career at Alcorn State before transferring to South Alabama.
