Redskins waived NT Anthony Bryant.
Bryant got on the field for the first time since 2007 last year, but was facing a bit of an uphill climb to crack the Redskins roster thanks to his almost complete lack of upside entering his age-30 season. In 15 career games, he has 19 tackles and zero sacks. Sat, Sep 3, 2011 05:10:00 PM

Comcast SportsNet Washington suggests that Redskins NT Anthony Bryant played well enough late in 2010 to get a chance to start in 2011.

Bryant isn't a realistic option as a career journeyman entering his age-30 season, but perhaps he could be a stopgap while the Skins break in a youngster from the draft. At 6'3/335, Bryant has plenty of size for the position.

Redskins signed DT Anthony Bryant, formerly of the Giants.

At 6-foot-3 and 335 pounds, Bryant has the build to play nose tackle in the 3-4, which Washington is installing under Jim Haslett. However, Bryant has failed to last long at any of his many NFL stops and will be on the bubble.

Giants signed DT Anthony Bryant.

Bryant spent last season out of football. He looks the part at 6'3/335, but has been with countless teams and no one's ever got anything out of him.

Dolphins signed DT Anthony Bryant off the Ravens' practice squad.

The 337-pound behemoth will try to help a flagging Dolphins run defense which ranks next to last in the NFL. Miami now has a dozen down linemen on its active roster. Apparently they've taken the quantity over quality approach.

Shaun Rogers (knee rehab) won't be back this week. Bryant has tremendous size and could earn himself a long-term role in Detroit if he's able to excel in the system he learned under old line coach Rod Marinelli.
