Biography

HOW ACQUIRED:
Selected with the 22nd pick in the fourth round (121st overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft.

NFL CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
• Has seen action in 49-career games with 40 starts. First-career start was at Dallas (11/1/09).
• Swapped positions from defensive tackle to end in 2010 and started the first seven games of the season. Was placed on injured reserve (11/2/10) after suffering a knee injury at Oakland (10/31/10). Solidified a defensive line that ranked second in the NFL against the run before his injury - a unit that dropped to 21st against the run by the end of the season following his injury.
• Posted a career year in 2011 starting all 16 games totaling a career high 32 tackles. Recorded two interceptions, including one that that resulted in a 20-yard TD at Chicago (12/18/11). Also blocked three field goals and an extra point – two FGs at Cleveland (10/23/11) and a FG and a PAT versus Washington (11/27/11). Three blocked FGs tied a single-season record, two blocked FGs in a game set a club record and four combined blocked kicks in a season also set a club mark. Bryant’s presence on the front line helped limit opposing run games to 3.8 yards/carry – fourth in the NFL. HONORS: 2011: Steve Largent Award; Ed Block Courage Award.

COLLEGE:
Started 41 career games recording 124 tackles with 6.5 sacks. Twenty tackles counted for a loss of yards. Posted three forced fumbles, nine passes defensed, three blocked kicks and a safety. Was named a captain during junior season and was awarded All-Big 12 first-team and third-team All-American from the NFL Draft Report as a sophomore.

PERSONAL:
Attended Jasper (Texas) High School. Earned first-team 3A All-State honors from the Texas Sports Writers Association and was one of eight finalists for the Willie Ray Smith Award, presented to the top offensive and defensive players in Southeast Texas. Consensus Texas Top 100 recruit, adding District and Golden Triangle Defensive Most Valuable Player honors during his senior season. Recipient of the 2001 District Defensive Player of the Year Award and was named the Southeast Texas Defensive Player of the Year by the Beaumont Enterprise. In addition to starring on the gridiron, Bryant also was a standout forward on the school’s basketball team. Married to Janelle, daughter of former Sea hawks defensive end Jacob Green.
