Draft Scout Red Bryant News
12/19/14 - DE Red Bryant said the Jaguars are now within one win of achieving a goal that head coach Gus Bradley threw at them last week. "Coach Bradley wanted us to have the mindset of being 9-5 and if we win both (final games), we get to the playoffs. He's just trying to get this team to continue to raise its expectations."
09/03/14 - DE Red Bryant has fulfilled the mission as to why the Jaguars signed him in free agency. The Jaguars ranked 27th in run defense a year ago and Bryant has played well in helping stop opponents' ground games. The one exception was Detroit's Reggie Bush who went right by Bryant on an 86-yard run in the third preseason game. Bryant was still smarting over the play the following day and sent a text to Gus Bradley apologizing for his role on that play.
08/25/14 - DE Red Bryant felt so bad about his effort when Lions running back Reggie Bush went 86 yards past him and other Jaguars defenders in the first quarter of Friday's game, that he sent head coach Gus Bradley a text the day after the game to express displeasure for his role in the lengthy touchdown run.
03/10/14 - DE Red Bryant was signed by the Jaguars on Saturday, according to multiple reports. Then deal is worth a reported $17 million.
Bryant had 87 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two interceptions in the past three seasons and 121 tackles over six years in Seattle.
The Seahawks, who drafted Bryant in the fourth round in 2008, released him on Feb. 28. He was due $4.5 million this season and a $3 million bonus if he was on the team's roster on March 14.
Jaguars coach Gus Bradley coached Bryant when he was Seattle's defensive coordinator.
02/28/14 - DE Red Bryant and WR Sidney Rice were released in the first two significant moves of what promises to be a difficult offseason for the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.
While Rice was expected to be released after finishing his third season in Seattle on injured reserve due to a knee injury, the team had hoped to renegotiate Bryant's contract to lower his salary cap figure from around $8 million in 2014.
Bryant, a fourth-round pick in 2008, was moved from tackle to end by coach Pete Carroll's staff in 2010 and became an integral part of the run defense. He has played in 64 games with the Seahawks, including 55 starts, recording 121 tackles, 3.5 sacks, two interceptions and seven passes defensed.
Signed as a free agent in 2011, Rice finished his first and last seasons in Seattle on injured reserve. In between, he started all 16 games in 2012 for the first time in his career. He caught 15 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns before suffering a torn ACL at St. Louis on Monday Night Football on Oct. 28, 2013.
"We want to thank both Red and Sidney for their effort, commitment and contribution to the Seattle Seahawks over the last few years," said executive vice president/general manager John Schneider. "These are extremely tough decisions, but we wanted to give them a head start on free agency. We wish them well in the future."
Bryant and Rice were the first two moves as the Seahawks seek to clear cap room, and tight end Zach Miller could be next on the renegotiation-or-cut list. Seattle has several key free agents it wants to re-sign, including wide receiver Golden Tate and defensive end Michael Bennett.
