Free agent wide receiver Antonio Bryant was arrested on Tuesday for assault.
Bryant reportedly strangled the mother of his child and was booked on charges of domestic battery by strangulation, domestic violence, and culpable negligence. Bryant, 31, was signed by the Seahawks in the offseason with a host of other veteran receivers, but he only lasted ten days in camp. This probably puts a fork in Bryant's career.

Seahawks released WR Antonio Bryant and signed K Carson Wiggs.

Bryant lasted ten days in camp, and it probably bodes poorly for the 31-year-old's NFL outlook that he was dumped for a camp kicker. The Seahawks recently added Braylon Edwards, which was probably the first solid sign that Bryant didn't have much left in the tank. He'll head back to unrestricted free agency.

Seahawks signed WR Antonio Bryant, formerly of the Bengals.

It's not clear if the Bryant acquisition will preclude the Seahawks from also signing Braylon Edwards, though we suspect the team would have held off if the latter was impressive in Thursday's workout. Following the release of Mike Williams, the team was seeking a receiver with starting experience to complement a green receiving corps. Now 31 years old and nearly three years removed from his last NFL reception, Bryant won't be guaranteed a roster spot. He was admittedly out of shape during a June tryout.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll acknowledged that free agent WR Antonio Bryant was "not in very good shape" during this week's tryout.

"When we get a chance to see him in really great condition I think he would be a competitive aspect of this thing," Carroll said. "He's not there right now though. He's a ways away and he admits that." The Seattle Times translates Carroll's comments to mean the Seahawks won't be signing Bryant any time soon.

Free agent WR Antonio Bryant will attend the Seahawks' minicamp this week.

Bryant has been out of the league since 2009, but Seattle will give him a chance to revive his career at age 31. After a career year in 2008, Bryant suffered a knee injury during the 2009 season. He hasn't played a snap since, despite signing a four-year, $28 million contract with the Bengals in 2010. Bryant will try to follow in Mike Williams' footsteps as a Pete Carroll revival project.

Free agent Antonio Bryant has filed a grievance against the Bengals, arguing that the team owes him $3.1 million.

Agent LaMont Smith is targeting Bryant's entire 2010 would-be salary ($1.55 million), plus another $1.55 million roster bonus. Bryant never played a snap for the Bengals, so it's hard to imagine him getting the money. NFL contracts are not guaranteed, and Bryant already received over $7 million.

Free agent Antonio Bryant will consult a specialist this week in order to determine the next step he'll take with his troublesome knee.

Bryant is uncertain when -- or if -- he'll be able to resume playing football anytime soon. A timetable for return won't be known until the medical check.

The Raiders have no interest in Antonio Bryant or any other free agent wide receivers, according to coach Tom Cable.

With Chaz Schilens (knee) out 3-6 weeks, the Raiders are set to roll with Louis Murphy and Darrius Heyward-Bey as their starters. Not even the Raiders are dumb enough to give Bryant and his chronic knee injury a look.

Free agent Antonio Bryant apparently has a Chondral Defect of the knee, an NFL medical person tells SI's Peter King.

It's a complicated cartilage injury that won't show up on tests unless you're looking for it. This would explain how Bryant passed a physical despite being unable to play. It's a long-term knee problem that won't go away, according to King's source, giving Bryant an uphill climb toward finding another job. Luckily for him, he's sitting on $7.85 million from the Bengals despite never playing a down.

Bengals released WR Antonio Bryant.

Undrafted rookie C Mike Windt was also let go. Bryant is released on the same day as Laveranues Coles was by the Jets, making some history. They were massive, $30 million free agent busts for Cincinnati and ended up being released in back-to-back years. At least Coles played a down for the Bengals. Bryant never did, but will collect a $3.6 million signing bonus, $3.1 million roster bonus (paid in March), and a $250,000 offseason workout bonus. The Bengals will open the season with Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco, and Jordan Shipley as their top three receivers.

The agent for Antonio Bryant insists he's not heard any indications that the Bengals plan to release his client.

"From what I understand, things have progressed the past week," said the agent in regard to Bryant's knee injury. The Bengals have already burned $7 million on Bryant. The question is whether they'd want to potentially burn another $3 million by keeping him into Week 1 while tying up a roster spot.

Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer believes that the Bengals are more likely to place Antonio Bryant (knee) on injured reserve than release him.

Newsday's original report was vague as to how the Bengals will rid themselves of Bryant, with I.R. not ruled out as an alternative to contract termination. Either way, Bryant won't play a snap for the Bengals this season.
Thu, Aug 26, 2010 04:07:00 PM

The Bengals are "prepared to move on" without Antonio Bryant, a league source tells Newsday's Bob Glauber.

The headline on Glauber's report says that the Bengals are "ready to release" Bryant, but the actual article isn't that strong. If the Bengals are going to cut Bryant, they'd have to eat the $7 million signing bonus they gave him as a free agent in March. Bryant has participated in just one day of training camp due to his troublesome knee and has lost his starting job to Terrell Owens. No matter what happens, the Bengals made an epic mistake by signing Bryant.

Antonio Bryant (knee) says he's progressing and is targeting Week 1 for his return.

We wouldn't bet on it. Bryant has missed the entire preseason and still doesn't feel comfortable on that troublesome knee. Even if he gets back on the field, he's lost his starting job to Terrell Owens and has shown an inability to sustain health over the last two years. Bryant is off the radar in fantasy.
Thu, Aug 26, 2010 12:41:00 PM

Antonio Bryant (knee) still hasn't resumed practicing since the first day of training camp.

Bryant is almost certainly going to miss the Bengals' fourth preseason game, though there haven't been indications yet from the team that he'll be released with an injury settlement. He could also be stashed on injured reserve.
