Dolphins signed CB Bryan McCann.

Cornerback De'Andre Presley was waived in a corresponding move. McCann offers versatility as a subpackage corner and return candidate in Miami. He's seen time with the Cowboys, Ravens, and Raiders.

Raiders signed CB Bryan McCann.

McCann had a few highlight plays as a returner and reserve cornerback in 2010, but he's been waived by the Cowboys and Ravens already this season. He'll add depth with Chimdi Chekwa and Chris Johnson injured.

Ravens waived CB/KR Bryan McCann.

With David Reed expected to overtake kick return duties and adequate cornerback depth in Jimmy Smith and Chris Carr, McCann was expendable. In a joint announcement, Baltimore promoted OLB Chavis Williams from practice squad to active roster.

Ravens signed CB Bryan McCann to a two-year contract.

McCann was waived two weeks ago so the Cowboys could sign Laurent Robinson, and the Ravens scooped him up. It's his second stint in Baltimore. McCann will provide depth with Domonique Foxworth on injured reserve and both Chris Carr (hamstring) and Jimmy Smith (ankle) hobbled.

Cowboys waived CB Bryan McCann.

McCann made a series of big plays in the second half of last season, but he fell out of favor behind Alan Ball by Week 1. His release is a sign that Terence Newman (groin) should be good to go this week against the Redskins.

Cowboys CB Bryan McCann's arrest for public intoxication came after McCann asked police to return his arrested friend's belongings.

When police failed to oblige, McCann "refused to accept the fact that no property would be released and became belligerent." The arresting officer neglected to note that McCann was a danger to self or others, which is usually the basis for a public intoxication charge in Texas. McCann is adamant that he wasn't drunk and will fight the charge.

Cowboys CB Bryan McCann released a statement on Sunday morning, denying he was intoxicated at the time of his Saturday morning arrest.

It defies believability that police would arrest and charge somebody with public intoxication unless they were clearly intoxicated, so McCann's statement is likely more semantics than anything else. All things considered, public intoxication isn't a terribly serious charge, and McCann would probably be best off just keeping quiet about it from here on out.

Cowboys CB Bryan McCann was arrested in Dallas on early Saturday morning and charged with public intoxication.

An undrafted rookie, McCann notched a pick-six and 15 tackles in nine games last season, also serving as an occasional returner. Despite the ongoing lockout, all NFL players could remain subject to the league's conduct policy pending the next Collective Bargaining Agreement. This means McCann may still have to answer to commissioner Roger Goodell about this incident.

Rookie CB Bryan McCann will be the Cowboys' primary punt returner with Dez Bryant out.

McCann has been a roller-coaster ride returner, taking back a punt 97 yards for a touchdown but also fumbling two kickoff returns. Terence Newman is expected to serve as McCann's backup returning punts while Kevin Ogletree could see some looks on kickoff returns.

Cowboys CB Bryan McCann said he knew which route Hakeem Nicks was running Sunday when he stepped in front of a pass and ran back an interception 101 yards for a score.

McCann said Nicks always gives a juke when he's getting ready to cut inside but doesn't if he's running a fade pattern. "As soon as he came off the line he was shaking, shaking, shaking," McCann said, "and I knew immediately he wasn't trying to get the fade." Maybe Nicks will do a better job of disguising his routes from now on.

Rookie CB Bryan McCann will serve as the Cowboys' primary kickoff returner at Green Bay this week.

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is out 4-6 weeks with a high ankle sprain, and the Cowboys aren't prepared to use Dez Bryant on kickoffs with his offensive role expanding. McCann showed impressive return ability in preseason action this summer.
