The Washington Redskins signed DT Anthony Bryant today.
In three seasons in the NFL, Bryant, 28, has appeared in nine games, including three starts. He has been credited with 11 tackles, including five unassisted.
Listed at 6-foot-3, 335 pounds, Bryant, a sixth-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2005, spent the first six games of the 2009 season on the New York Giants' practice squad before being moved to injured reserve in October. Bryant, who was out of football during the 2008 season, joined the Giants as a free agent during the 2009 offseason.
Not sure what this move means, if it is nothing more than camp fodder or added depth at a new position requirement for the Redskins defense. The Redskins are changing to a 3-4 style of defense. Earlier this off-season, the Redskins inked NT Maake Kemoeatu, who missed all of last season with an achilles injury.
The switch to a 3-4 style of defense has caused turmoil with the Redskins prized free agent signing last season, Albert Haynesworth. Haynesworth has not attended voluntary workouts to the shagrin of new Redskins HC Mike Shanahan. We fully expect Haynesworth to be traded.
