Reese 'disappointed' over minority hires

Giants general manager Jerry Reese, one of the few minorities to hold such a position, expressed some disappointment over that development when he addressed the media at the Combine Saturday morning.

"It's a little disappointing," Reese began. "I think there were some good candidates who had some opportunities and it just didn't work out this time. 0-for-15 ... that ... it is what it is."
