Redskins sign nose tackle Anthony Bryant

Free agent nose tackle Anthony Bryant has signed with the Redskins, the team announced Monday. Terms of the deal were not released.

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.

This won't mean squat regarding trading or not trading AH. Bryant's a nobody that won't have any impact on the field. Nice distraction, but no ceegar!

"Redskins sign nose tackle Anthony Bryant"

Does this means the thick AH plot thickens?

Can't say.

I don't know anything about Bryant, but if an AH trade is to go down, the trick is for the redskins to insure there are bodies to fill in what will be an enormous absence.

Bryant joins a defensive tackle rotation featuring Daniels, Golston, Kemoteau, Montgomery, and--for now?--Haynesworth.

It would be nice to receive an above average vet in trade, but you have to wonder if a vet like Bryant working in a rotation that includes a high drafted rookie will work.

Again: trading Haynesworth for a pick that becomes a kid defensive linemen you have to groom makes no sense.

But you have to wonder if the Bryant acquisition is the first step in Haynesworth's walk away from the team.

Posted by: DC2AZ99 | April 12, 2010 6:00 PM | Report abuse

still hoping AH stays and that this is more to provide possibilities at NT other than AH so he can rotate between NT and DE, keeps him happy and dominating which he can and will do

Now I'm psyched. We finally got a guy that is actually under 30 years old.

But isn't he a WR? Anthony, Antonio, Dez, Anita? Man these Bryants confuse me

Anyway, in terms of impact, what else needs to be said:
Out of football: 2008
practice squad/IR: 2009

He'd be dumb to sign an extension unless it is for haynesworth type money. He's much better off waiting and letting teams bid for him next season, whenever that is.

Until he signs an ext, expect a one and done from mcNabb a la Jason Taylor

And what LB's do you see on our roster that can have anywhere near the impact Albert can if we just used him correctly? Orakpo? I suspect he was a benefactor of Albert's presence the same way Carter was. And outside of rushing the passer, he looked pretty lost out there. (though I do expect improvement this year...)

The best coaches put there best players in the best positions to make plays. We use ours for gap control assignments and space eating, and then wonder why he complains...

Posted by: edvar | April 12, 2010 7:17 PM | Report abuse

The bottom line is that Shanny is the MacGyver of offensive football, and can make a thousand yard rusher out of two pieces of string and a 7th round pick. He was run out of town because he couldn't architect a top-30 defense to save his life, and went through defensive coordinators like Tiger goes through waffle house waitresses.

Running your best player on either side of the ball out of town is not a good start to changing that track record.

What's that got to do with Peter King having a point about Dallas needing an OT? Can we stick with the line of logic in question. There was never any argument about us needing 2 OL's. That's as obvious as Peter King being a d-bag. You said that King said Gaither would be a good fit for Dallas and you were upset that he didn't menmtion us. I said Peter King is a d-bag. You said even a d-bag (Peter King) can have a point sometimes. The only thing Peter King said regarding this conversation is that Dallas needs an oline. So again I ask you, what does that have to do with 1) Peter King having a point and 2) us needing 2 olineman. You're attemting to prove a point that was never part of the original discussion.

Count me as wanting to keep AH.

Landry, however, can be traded. Chris Horton looks to be able to provide us with everything Landry can - minus the whiffed tackles.

Tampa Bay has 2 high picks in the second round - 35th and 42nd.

They are apparently interested in Eric Berry but likely won't take him as high as #3 overall, but maybe they'd be interested in swapping that 35th pick for Landry straight up?

People here need to stop feeding into this Bullsh!t that the WaPost has been printing. These are the same people who vilified Sean Taylor for not coming in and not returning St. Joe's calls. And now they praise his name. Big Al will go down as one of the greatest Redskins of all time. And for those who want to say he was out of shape last year. That why he training on his on this year. He was here participating last year and wasn't happy about his conditioning so he went back to work out with the same guy who helped him when he was in Tenn. That's what he said in the beginning and until we see other wise there's no need to doubt him.

"We already have a big, under-performing NT with Montgomery."


A. Montgomery is a completely under the radar player.

The guy is massive: 6'6" 330 pounds.

The guy has also underwhelmed.

It's like he's a big baby that doesn't even cry.

Quick: think of a play he's made during his redskin tenure that stands out in your mind.

You can't?: thought so.

But with Griff gone, he gets a chance to step up, and take a role with the defense in the way his draft sidekick K Golston has.

You have to hope that new coaching, a new scheme, and the chance to get playing time would motivate the guy to do more than be average.

A motivated Monty playing NT or DT is essential as he or somebody has to jump in and be was steady as Griff was.

He doesn't have to be great--just good enough to fill in should Kemo be hurt, Golston winded, or, worse: Haynesworth gone.

Jason Campbell finally signed his tender. Heres what Matt Mosely of ESPN said about him earlier in the day:

If a team's willing to send over a fourth-round pick, I think the Redskins would pull the trigger.

Then just an hour ago he posted this:

So what would it take to land Campbell in a trade? I think the Bills could probably get it done for a fifth-round pick.

Here's how Shanahan's Tebow jones works. When he was in the dumps, scarfing Prozac like a champ after Denver's owner had given him the old heave-ho, Meyer invited him to Gainesville to hang with him and audit his practices. Meyer nurtured him when he needed a friend and didn't have any so he owes him big time. Meyer has a strong emotional attachment to Tebow which goes beyond the two national championships they won together. Meyer is doing everything he can to make Tebow's transition to the NFL as smooth as possible. Here's where Shanahan comes in. He is well respected as a QB guru and by humping Tebow as much as possible he improves the dude's chances of getting a decent draft selection, which is no foregone conclusion. It wouldn't surprise some if he goes undrated.

REDSKINS TRY TO CLEAR UP CONFUSION OVER SOUP AND SANDWICHES

ASHBURN, VA -- Only days removed from paying defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth a $21 million roster bonus for NOT attending the team’s off-season conditioning program, the Washington Redskins officials are trying to clear up another series of errors.

The major players in today’s events are the Redskins former starting quarterback, Jason Campbell, the team's catering firm, Aramark and to a lesser degree, Haynesworth himself.

Moments after confirming that Campbell had finally signed a $3.14 million restricted free agent tender with the team, an unnamed team staff member was overhead making luncheon arrangements with Aramark for this weekend's spring minicamp at Redskin Park.

Apparently, the staff member wanted to pre-order a few gallons of Campbell soup and a tray of ham sandwiches to be served during lunch on the first day of camp.

Unfortunately, the caterer misunderstood and thought the team wanted to trade of "Soup" Campbell for a tray of ham sandwiches.

The caterer apparently took offense, and shouted at the staff member, explaining that while Aramark has been a loyal supporter of the team over the past several decades, the catering firm has no interest in trading for Washington’s hopeless cause of a quarterback, even if the asking proce is little more than a single ham sandwich.

Adding to the confusion, the mustachioed quarterback walked by the team offices during the phone conversation, overhead a few words, and immediately declared that despite his contract, he will not report to the minicamp until he gets a guarantee that soup and sandwiches will not be served or traded during the camp.

Team officials then tried to explain that the only way to get Haynesworth into camp was to guarantee a free lunch. They also conceded that it might be preferable for Campbell to eat elsewhere -- ham sandwich or not.

He does have a history of injuries, and not knowing how the O-line is going to improve or not, why not wait until he has shown this is going to work, let him play 4-6 games at least.

When star players can call the owner and cry about anything then there is a problem, there needs to be a chain of command or the coach has no control. AH is a talent for sure, so is T.O and I'd hate to see him here. For the money AH got he should shut up and do whats asked of him and playing a few more downs wouldn't hurt!

It'd be nice to have AH become a team player, not to sure than will ever happen,a message should be sent that if you want to play for the Redskins being a team player is the NO.1 requirement, the question is how far will Snyder go to show things have changed in Washington, if that message is ignored.

28th is for pass protection. Our run game was 29th in yards per carry. Overall, there's pretty good case that we had the worst OL in football. The teams behind us in pass pro in the article were Oak, Jax, Tampa and Buff. In yards per carry, they were Oak (19th), Jax (5th), Tampa (25th), Buff (8th).

Bottom line, our OL sucked at everything. Perhaps not surprising considering this. If we gave an award for the best OL on the team for this season, it probably would have gone to Dockery. Dockery, of course, was cut by the Bills after finishing dead last at his position in pass pro in 2008.

Cody or Williams?

That's the question.

If you move AH because you dislike his attitude, get a second rounder to draft his replacement, which top rated nose tackle type is worth the money?

I'd say most AH haters would want the team oriented Williams even though Cody might be the better player.

Why?

Cody has had the same conditioning, motivation, and attitude issues at 'Bama that skins' fans decry about AH.

But, if you move AH, and then obviously have to replace him with a young guy with his kind of ability, you'd have to ask yourself if adding a potential headache makes sense after ridding yourself of one.

Cody or Williams in round 2 (if they're even availiable)?

I'd go with Dan Cody, and put up with the headache.

I'm no Tracee Hamilton fan, but after reading her latest column on here she's hit this Haynesworth thing right on the head. I know God Himself couldn't talk p1funk into seeing Haynesworth as anything but the greatest thing to happen to organized sports, but for the rest of us it's a good read.

everyone needs to chill out as far as offensive line is concerned if you really think about it shanahan has open up starting competition for every position on the line which means he's gonna go go swimming after offensive lineman besides it's gonna take at least two years for this line to come together so everyone chill out about the line yes it's a shame it wasn't taken care of a lot sooner but nothing can be done about it now.

A deep bench doesn't mean a whole lot if there are no starters on the team. Then they look like Oakland or Detroit.

So far I have seen lots of wasted motion. And getting McNabb screws up any sort of coherent plan for the future. Campbell has more upside than aging meat any day.

"I read he gets cut a $6.2 million roster check next month and gets $11mil salary, but I don't know whether its correct or not -- did seem pretty high.

McNabb's BASE SALARY is 5.3 mil, and the ROSTER BONUS is 6.5 mil...Making McNabb's TOTAL SALARY 11.8 mil this season [unless a restructuring is part of his extension, then who knows what will happen].

You guys that are worried about money and salary hits just don't get it.

Snyde is going to do what Shanahan asks him to do, at least in 2010 and 2011, when the 'honeymoon' period hangs over the new staff and front office.

Snyder wrote off $10M bonuses for Adam Archuleta and Brandon Lloyd, the team gave Deion Sanders $8M and cut him after one season. Jason Taylor picked up $8M for getting 3.5 sacks and playing in only a limited number of games.

That's $36M in monies paid out for questionable productivity at best.

If Shanahan ultimately wants AH off the roster it is going to happen, $21M or no $21M.

I am surprised this question bothers everyone so much after all that has been wasted over the past 10 years in personnel.
