During Cleveland's Week 5 win vs. the Bills, the Browns suffered a scary moment when defensive end Desmond Bryant had to be taken to the hospital when he experienced shortness of breath. Then, two months later, he suffered a rapid heart rate after a game vs. Jacksonville, and he had to miss the final four games of the season after undergoing surgery for an irregular heartbeat.

But on Friday, Bryant tweeted out some good news.

Bryant, who finished with 31 tackles and 3.5 sacks last year, will be entering the second year of the five-year, $34 million deal he signed before the 2013 season.
