Cardinals DT Red Bryant is on the roster bubble.

Bryant played only 135 snaps in a run-stopping role last year. He needs to hold off Rodney Gunter, Corey Peters, and Xavier Williams to keep his job. Arizona can save $625K from releasing Bryant.

Cardinals re-signed DT Red Bryant to a one-year contract.

Bryant played just 103 snaps in six games after joining the Cardinals in November. The veteran will battle for a roster spot in camp.

Cardinals signed DT Red Bryant, formerly of the Bills.

With Cory Redding and Frostee Rucker nursing ankle injuries, 31-year-old Bryant will give the Cardinals another run-stuffing option in the trenches.

Bills released DT Red Bryant.

Bryant spent all summer on the open market before the Bills scooped him up in late August. Bryant is a proven run stopper, but he may be out of gas entering his age-31 season.
Sat, Sep 5, 2015 02:36:00 PM

Bills signed DL Red Bryant, formerly of the Jaguars.

Bryant, 31, was cut by the Jaguars in March. It's pretty surprising he lasted as long as he did on the open market without even getting as much as a nibble before working out for the Bills earlier this week. Bryant brings nothing to the table as a pass rusher, but has proven to be an asset on 20-30 snaps per game as a run stopper. It's a solid addition for an already-deep Buffalo defensive line.

Free agent DL Red Bryant is working out for the Bills.

As are OLBs Marcus Benard and Quentin Groves. Now 31, ex-Seahawk Bryant was highly ineffective as a 16-game starter for the Jaguars last season.

Jaguars released DL Red Bryant.

Bryant lasted one season in Jacksonville. He was likely only signed as veteran leadership for a young Jaguars team when he inked a four-year, $19 million deal last spring. The move saves the Jaguars $4.5 million. It's possible newly-signed DL Jared Odrick will take over for Bryant as the Jaguars' starting "big" end on the left side. Bryant, 31 next month, still plays elite run defense.

Jaguars signed LE Red Bryant to a four-year, $19 million contract.

Bryant, 30 next month, was released by the Seahawks in a salary-cap move last week. He wanted to latch on with a new team before the free-agent market flooded on Tuesday, and the Jaguars were always a logical landing spot. Bryant reunites with coach Gus Bradley and should anchor the left side of Jacksonville's line on early downs. Tyson Alualu manned that spot for the Jags last season, but struggled. Bryant is a big upgrade in run defense.
Sat, Mar 8, 2014 02:54:00 PM

Free agent DE Red Bryant is expected to sign a new deal before the start of free agency.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Bryant's market is "strong." Bryant hasn't generated much public buzz since his release from the Seahawks last week, but has been linked to the Chiefs. He'd be wise to find a new home before free agency floods the market with similar talents.
Thu, Mar 6, 2014 01:39:00 PM

The National Football Post's Aaron Wilson is "hearing" the Chiefs have interest in free agent DE Red Bryant.

Bryant could play five-technique end in Kansas City, replacing free agent Tyson Jackson. Bryant is also expected to field interest from New England, though he hasn't generated significant buzz since the Seahawks released him on Friday.
Sun, Mar 2, 2014 02:42:00 PM

Seahawks released LE Red Bryant.

The move clears $5.5 million in cap space, and along with the release of Sidney Rice frees up $12.8 million for the Super Bowl champions. FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reported GM John Schneider was planning to put some of the money toward re-signing free agent DE Michael Bennett. Bryant saw his career resurrected under coach Pete Carroll, but was called on for only 488 snaps in 2013. Bryant is stout as a run stopper, but offers nothing as a pass rusher. He was expendable for a team with Seattle's defensive line depth. There's a good chance Bryant finds a new home before the start of free agency on March 11. The Patriots are expected to pursue him.
Fri, Feb 28, 2014 04:06:00 PM

The Patriots tried to sign DL Red Bryant as a free agent in 2012.

Bryant ultimately decided to spurn the Patriots to sign a five-year, $35 million deal with the Seahawks. Fast forward two years, and he's expected to be released by the Seahawks as a cap casualty. Bryant will come cheaper this time around and would be a nice add for Bill Belichick at the defensive tackle spot, where Vince Wilfork is 32 years old and coming off an Achilles' tear. The Jags and former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley could also have interest.

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Seahawks will release LE Red Bryant.

The move would save $5.5M in cap room. Per Marvez, GM John Schneider plans to use the money toward re-signing free agent DE Michael Bennett. A former defensive tackle and disappointing 2008 fourth-round pick, Bryant's career was resurrected when Pete Carroll arrived in Seattle, converting him to a mammoth run-stopping "five-technique" end. Bryant signed a five-year, $35M deal in 2012 and is owed $7.5M in salary and bonuses in 2014. Once the transaction goes down, Bryant will become an attractive free agent. He turns 30 in April.
Sun, Feb 23, 2014 09:01:00 PM

Seahawks LE Red Bryant currently has an $8.5 million cap number for 2014.

Working against Bryant is a $3 million roster bonus due on March 14. Bryant only played 488 snaps in 2013, offers next to nothing in terms of a pass rush, and turns 30 in April. The Seahawks are looking to clear as much cap space as possible with important players like DL Michael Bennett set to hit the open market next month.
