Browns release Armonty Bryant

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady isn’t the only player who finished serving a four-game suspension this weekend.

His teammate Rob Ninkovich, Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and others have also wrapped up their time in the penalty box. Most of them will be returning to action with their teams this week, but not Browns linebacker Armonty Bryant.

The Browns announced Monday that they have released Bryant, who served a suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Bryant may also face further league discipline after pleading guilty to drug charges this offseason.

Bryant was a seventh-round pick by the Browns in 2013 and played in 31 games for the team over the last three seasons. He had 8.5 sacks and two forced fumbles while playing mainly as a reserve on the Cleveland defense.

    I like it. Create a culture of accountability and consequences. Great place to start turning an organization around.

    Good. Decent enough player, but not worth the headache he was becoming.

    Hue sounds like he has no tolerance for anyone who is not 100% committed to football. Even the slightest hint of focus being elsewhere and ‘bye’. I can understand that. It will focus the guys who are there and force others to step up. I hope in 12 years we’re talking about Hue as a Hall of Fame coach after winning 3 Super Bowls…..

    Consequences. He’d rather do other things than be a football player. Now he has more time to do those other things.
