|Latest Seahawks News, Notes|
Bryant, 31, began his career in Dallas but was traded to the Browns after struggling to fit into Bill Parcells' offense (throwing a jersey in the coach's face certainly didn't help the relationship). After stops in Cleveland and San Francisco, Bryant experienced a renaissance in Tampa Bay where, in 2008, he caught 83 passes for 1,248 yards and seven touchdowns.
He was released a year later and in March 2010, signed a four-year, $28 million contract with the Bengals. Bryant never played a regular-season down in Cincy and was out of the NFL until the Seahawks signed him last week.
It didn't help Bryant's chances when on Tuesday Seattle signed wide receiver Braylon Edwards. The News Tribune's Eric Williams writes that Bryant had missed the last two Seahawks practices with unknown injuries and his reps had been limited during the first week of training camp.
Despite 372 career receptions, Bryant's release doesn't come as a complete surprise; he hasn't played in an NFL game since 2009 and Seattle has 13 wideouts on the roster. In addition to Edwards, there's Sidney Rice, James Baldwin, Golden Tate and Ben Obomanu. Bryant would've needed sustained jaw-dropping efforts during camp and the preseason to have a legit shot to make the final roster.
In other personnel news, Seattle re-signed kicker Carson Wiggs to the 90-man roster.
