Freddie Dryer was and is my great friend. We played together in New York for 3 or 4 years, and not only was he a gifted player, he was a brilliant actor. My friend, Stephen Cannell, who passed away about 3 years ago and was one of the most prolific writers and producers in Hollywood, said that Freddie was the most talented actor he had ever been around.
The attached letter tells you all you need to know about Freddie, and the camaraderie you find among football players. His letter mentions Alex Webster, who passed away about a year ago. Alex was our head coach for 2 years in New York. The letter also talks about Jim Marshall, the great defensive end, member of the Purple People Eaters, and my teammate for most of my career.
