I realize this guy has some off-field issues,....but,...........

....I (also) see him as someone with a chip on his shoulder, who (in the right environment) could dominate at his position for a few years.

The Seahawks, this team, the Emerald City;................get this guy out of Oakland and he WILL excel.

I don't know,......youth,......environment,...........discipline,......whatever!

I say bring him in.

The more "attitude" the better.

Excessive use of periods. 15 yards.

Yes, ellipses are best used in moderation.

Saw a news report on NFL network that said the Browns are going to be one of the teams going after Bryant. The Browns have $40 million in cap space. Could get interesting.

The downside...you have to play in Cleveland.

Desmond Bryant would work fine but I'd take a look at Vance Walker from the Falcons too.

Unfortunately due to Melton and Starks getting tagged Bryant is one of the most attractive FA DTs. It will cost a lot more than a flyer to bring him in

That's ok. Dude may act like a dummy but he's a harvard grad that got in on an academic scholarship and a 4.2 gpa. Dude is smart.

I don't think he goes to Cleveland based on that alone.

I can definitely see him in Seahawk blue next year.

I want a guy that does better than 100%. Especially because it is impossible. Therefore he will equate to a difference maker on this Dline. After we win the Super Bowl I will point to his 4.2 g.p.a at Harvard and reminisce about how I predicted his success.

Yes, it will be interesting to see if he gets a better offer from the Browns or any other bottom feeder team and takes it. Or does he go for a slightly less possible offer from the Hawks where he still gets a great contract, but also gets to play for a serious Super Bowl championship contender.

I wonder what 99.99999999999999999999999999999999% of the other NFL players in his position would go for? Especially those with a Harvard education, which are few in numbers.

Doesn't Harvard disown any alum who enter the city limits of Cleveland?

Truth.

Interesting. Cleveland has aggressive ownership trying to recreate Pittsburgh in a single off season, and they must see Bryant as a good 3-4 DE. I wonder if Seattle sees him the same way?

You can now graduate with gpa's greater then the old 4.0 "staight A's" of my day. My son's a freshman and is pulling a 4.2. Some high schools (luckily ours) offer AP (advanced placement) and even IB (International Baccalaureate) programs that give the gifted kids, or even the not-so-gifted kids who just have the desire and work ethic, an opportunity to break away from the pack and study at a higher level than the norm. These classes carry a higher credit "weight" or can be considered college level. IE: my 14 yo freshman son is getting an A+ in Algebra II Pre-IB so this carries more weight than some of his buddies who might be getting an A in the standard freshman Algebra...

An academic scholarship with a 4.2 says Desmond Bryant is a highly intelligent dude with a work ethic... that alone, not to mention the athletic talent, impresses me.

I agree about taking a flyer on this guy. Right over the top of him and look for greener fields on the other side of the fence.

:roll:
