Lions awarded Armonty Bryant off waivers from Browns

After a rough day from their defense on Sunday, the Lions are calling in reinforcements.

Armonty Bryant, who was waived by the Browns yesterday, has been awarded to the Lions today.

A 2013 seventh-round pick of the Browns, Bryant hasn’t played at all this year because he was suspended for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

Last year Bryant showed promise, collecting 5.5 sacks while playing mostly in a reserve role in Cleveland. The Lions hope Bryant can have that kind of impact, while staying out of trouble.

To make room for Bryant on the 53-player roster, the Lions put defensive end Wallace Gilberry on injured reserve.

    He’ll be suspended again before the season is over for that offseason arrest.

    Another troublemaker sent out to the trash by the Browns. Good luck with this one, Lions!
