The Raiders have made their second addition to the defensive line this offseason.

The team announced on Friday that they have signed defensive end Armonty Bryant to a contract. Bryant joins Tank Carradine as the new faces up front for the Raiders.

Bryant was released by the Lions last October shortly after he was suspended four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. It was the third time Bryant has been suspended since entering the NFL as a 2013 seventh-round pick of the Browns.

When Bryant hasn’t been suspended, he has appeared in 36 games for Cleveland and Detroit. He’s racked up 11.5 sacks in those games, so the Raiders are likely hoping that Bryant can stay out of trouble long enough to give their pass rush a boost in 2018.

    Jon Gruden is the most OVERRATED head coach in the history of the NFL!

    ————————————————————————–
    why do you keep trolling these articles by posting the same exact comment? If you are waiting for them to pick up some big name player who will take all the money away from Mack’s contract, you should just go find a new team.

  2. i think that is now 27 free agents, and 11 picks- camp battles for the final 53 should be fun this summer

  3. While I agree with your sentiment and certainly your calling out a troll, nevertheless the money Gruden is spending right now on short-term, single-year guaranteed salaries will have no impact whatsoever on Khalil Mack’s extension as regardless of when the two sides des finally get the terms hammered out, it won’t take effect until 2019. So while I concur that it’s patently unfair and irrelevant to (repeatedly) refer to Jon Gruden as an “overrated head coach” solely on the basis of his recent arguably unconventional roster decisions, nevertheless the notion of prudent and conservative spending to preserve sufficient assets for a substantial Khalil Mack extension offer isn’t justifiable grounds for defending Gruden’s evidently antiquated approach to player recruitment.

    I can post the same comment as often as I’d like. If you don’t like it, don’t read it. The question is why are you trolling me. As an Oakland native, a Raider fan since 1975 and a true Al Davis guy, I know that this is a move (hiring Gruden again after stealing a Super Bowl with Dungy’s team and Al’s playbook) that NEVER would have made.

  5. So the All Pro punter’s behavior is intolerable, but the thrice-suspended druggy DE is cool.

  6. You haters keep talking about Tony Dungy. He couldn’t get the Bucs to the SB. The year Gruden won the SB both teams he coached made it. Every time I hear that crap makes me cringe. Just shows how much you trolls know about football.

  7. Gruden isn’t making decisions on camp bodies. He said to Reggie, “Yo, get me some walking talking tackle dummies and sleds so I can get some feedback”. A lot of these guys are scratching lottery tickets right now for their future.

    his mugshot is priceless. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    I think you mean Desmond Bryant. Desmond Bryant was drafted by the Raiders out of Harvard and played well for them. I was sutprised they let him walk in Free Agency.
    Then, when I saw that mugshot I thought “Oh. Now I get it. There must be more (less) to Dedmond than I thought” because DAYYYYYUM, that was a mugshot for the ages.
    Darmony Bryant’s mugshot was much nicer (lol)

  9. For what Reggie got for this guy, Senquez and Hall, he could have gotten someone who might be able to contribute this season. Boy I hope he doesn’t reach this year in the draft.
