Antonio Bryant resurfaces with the Seahawks

Apparently, Antonio Bryant has gotten himself into football shape in the last month.

The Seahawks have signed Bryant, even though coach Pete Carroll thought that Bryant looked like he wasn’t in football shape after a minicamp tryout last in June.

Bryant inked a four-year, $28 million deal in 2010 with the Bengals, who cut him before he ever suited up for a game.  He hasn’t played since.

Before that, Bryant had a career year with the Buccaneers in 2008.  He remained in Tampa under the franchise tag in 2009.

Bryant also has played for the Cowboys, Browns, and 49ers.

The move comes after the Seahawks took a look on Thursday at another guy who has played for the Browns and 49ers, Braylon Edwards.

Bryant, 31, presumably fills the “washed-up receiver looking to surprise people” role that Mike Williams occupied in the first two years of the Pete Carroll regime.

Of course, it’s one thing to have a spot on the 90-man roster.  It’s quite another to still have a job after 37 guys are sent packing.

  1. Okay that was mean spirited. Funny as hell but just plain mean.. LOL Hey look we are on 6 days without an arrest guys must be in camp huh?

    “Bryant, 31, presumably fills the “washed-up receiver looking to surprise people” role that Mike Williams occupied in the first two years of the Pete Carroll regime.”

  2. Seriously – I know Terrell Owens isn’t a nice guy.. but how does he not get.. at the least.. a try out? Roy Williams gets a try out. Braylon Edwards gets a try out. The Seahawks sign a man with no knees. The Ravens signed freaking Logan Payne?!

    Smells like collusion to me.

  3. “Bryant, 31, presumably fills the “washed-up receiver looking to surprise people” role that Mike Williams occupied in the first two years of the Pete Carroll regime.”

    Comedy gold. Well done sir.

  4. Guess he really showed the ‘hawks something to be optimistic about, Petey is gonna get an A or an F on this one.

  5. Probably the #4 receiver in Seattle.
    I am still puzzled why Carroll & co think he could be worth anything.
    This mindless aping of the 49ers must stop.
    49ers got Aldon? We must get Bruce Irvin.
    They got Randy Moss – find me another receiver that didnt play last year!

    What next – another oversized guard that didnt play last year?

    C’mon Carroll, show some originality now.

  6. Am I ever glad I’m not a Seahag fan. Talk about picking through the garbage.

  7. This is a good move by the Seahawks. If his knee holds up Bryant will be a good player for them.

    Untils he gets a big contract.

  8. WOW! They passed on Braylon ‘hands of stone’ Edwards to sign Bryant? Probably did that because they didn’t want Edwards to outshine Fitzgerald twice a year.

  9. I doubt he even makes the roster. That said, with Sidney Rice’s health always open for question until proven otherwise, it would be wise for Seattle to have an available veteran with some knowledge of the playbook sitting around during the season waiting for the phone to ring.
