Some Browns fans should be familiar with Bryant (5-9, 195 lbs) -- he’s from Cleveland, OH and played at Glenville High School and Ohio State. Remember him?
Bryant did not make the Rams’ roster in 2016, and since then, he’s bounced between the practice squad or offseason rosters of the Giants and Cardinals. Bryant’s odds of making the 53-man roster don’t figure to be very good, as he wasn’t on any team for training camp.
The team needed an extra body at safety with Justin Currie being waived/injured, and the team still waiting to get Ed Reynolds and Ibraheim Campbell back from injury. Gregg Williams was the Rams’ defensive coordinator when Bryant was there, so he’s a good fit to step in without having to teach someone else something foreign for the two weeks they’ll be here.
