WR Antonio Bryant schedules visit with Redskins

The Redskins apparently are throwing their hat in the ring for one of the top wide receivers available on the free agency market.

Former Bucs receiver Antonio Bryant has scheduled a visit with the Redskins, according to a report in the Tampa Tribune
.
Bryant visited Cincinnati on Tuesday, but as the Tribune story points out, he'd be playing second-fiddle to Chad Ochocinco there. And the Bengals are looking at Terrell Owens, as well. It's possible the Redskins could sell Bryant on the idea that he'd be the featured receiver in Washington.

Bryant, an eight-year veteran, would be interesting dynamic as the Redskins try to revamp their offense. He has twice topped 1,000 yards in his career.

There are certainly some interesting connections that might make the Redskins a good fit. For starters, Mike Shanahan likes bigger receivers, and he didn't need to study much film to realize that Santana Moss is barely 5-foot-10 (though at 6-foot-1, Bryant is shorter than both Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas). Second, Bruce Allen was the Bucs' general manager when Tampa brought Bryant over in 2008. And third, Bryant worked closely with Redskins' assistant coach Sean McVay and helped Bryant put up career numbers in 2008 and win The Sporting News Comeback Player of the Year Award.

Bryant set career-highs that season with 83 catches, 1,248 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. Last season, Bryant played in 13 games, catching 39 pases for 600 yards and four touchdowns. He had just one game of 100 yards or more last season.

ProFootballTalk.com floated the possibility that Bryant has scheduled his Washington visit simply to show the Bengals that he has other options. But as offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan tries to remake the team's passing game, it's doubtful the Redskins would bring him in if they didn't think he'd fill a need.

Bryant would bring an interesting locker room dynamic to the Redskins. He's been labeled a headcase by some and was reportedly pushed out of San Francisco after clashing with former coach Mike Nolan.

Andre Carter is an example of a 'problem' that Shanahan created. Carter had a very solid year last year, though he's been very up and down. Change nothing about the front seven and your solid. Change to a 3-4 and holes appear.

The thing I like about Carter is that he never quits and plays almost every down ... something few DEs can do. He's like the baseball pitcher that throws a ton of innings, everyone else is fresher for it.

Go to a 3-4 and Carter will be marginalized. He has the talent to do it, but not the enthusiasm.

Personally, if Carter is going to be moved, I say we make him a free safety. I mean, he can't be worse than Landry and I can only imagine the look on the faces of the WRs when they see a guy that big coming at them at full speed.

Colts claim Skolnitsky

Posted by Mike Florio on March 9, 2010 9:39 AM ET

As it turns out, running back Marcus Mason wasn't the only non-vested veteran recently waived by the Redskins who was claimed on Monday.

A league source tells us that the Colts claimed the contract of defensive tackle J.D. Skolnitsky.

Skolnitsky joined the Redskins as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He was one of ten players cut last Thursday by the new Mike Shanahan-Bruce Allen regime.

In the offseason, players with fewer than four years of service must pass through waivers after being cut. Players with four or more seasons instantly become free agents upon their release.

Bryant is a talented head case. But if Bruce Allen and the coaches know how to make it work, take the talent.

The only downside is that only one of the young WRs would see much playing time, and they could ALL use more of that.

Shanahan can handle Bryant's personality. He's dealt w/ CP, Cutler, Marshall. Bryant will tow the line or be dealt with accordingly.

Even Lavar Arrington was considered transcendent among LBs in the game for his first few years.

Amazing how we could have 3 talents like that, yet manage (or fall victim to bad luck) to get nothing out of them.

Posted by: psps23 | March 9, 2010 12:11 PM |

Not true. The Skins got Portis for Champ. And LaVar was considered transcendent only in the hype category - the "LaVar Leap" shti. He might have been transcendent in the beginning if he had played within the system but he was always out of position and opponents exploited this weakness.

Honestly... of all our units I'd be most comfortable going into the season with:
Santana Moss
Devin Thomas
Malcolm Kelly

No thanks to lost a step Willie Parker or the head case that is Antonio Bryant. This is the worst UFA pool ever, stay away and work with the 5 draft picks, undrafted FAs, and Vinny's playoff caliber roster.

Posted by: Diesel44 | March 9, 2010 12:38 PM | Report abuse

Have to say that I would agree with this move. You have him and DT taking the starting role while you put Moss into the slot where he can utilize his speed. Or Moss and Bryant on the outsides, while you put DT or MK in the slot and take full advantage of their size. And if DT can get any kind of space over the middle, he has the speed that could break away from defenders

Posted by: PanteraCFH | March 9, 2010 12:38 PM | Report abuse

I would pass on him. The skins have 3 young receiving targets, including Fred Davis, who showed decent signs near the end of last season.

Why take in a potential headache?

They need to focus their attention on the O line.

_____________________________________

The WR spot hasn't exactly been stable. None of the new guys have stepped in completely to be that go to guy. I'd like to see them develop into that rather than sign a headcase off the street. But I'm not opposed to addressing the WR spot in general, especially if it's in free agency.

The team was 4-12 last year. There's not a lot of areas on the team where you can say we've got this position locked down. If a quality player is available at a certain position, even though there might be a bigger need elsewhere... it would be foolish not to sign a player that would fit in and help the team.

I just don't trust that Bryant is that guy.

Arrington was transcendent because there wasn't a linebacker in the league that was as fast, fluid, strong, or could hit as hard as he could.

And in a system built around his strengths, he was an absolute animal. Under the wrong system, his freelancing ways would hinder him.

Plenty of players exhibit this. Albert Haynesworth is one. Dwight Freeney is another. Elvis Dumervil another. These guys excel when the system is built around letting them attack the ball. When too many restrictions are put on these guys, they falter.

Don't sign Bryant because he's a headache?

Name the strong-willed head coach who had any kind of problem with a player.

It's the weak, no name coaches who have the problems.

We all saw what happened in NE when R Moss tired to go back to his old ways--Belichek and Brady corrected him with the quickness.

Likewise, Shanny will straighten up CP and Bryant too should he be on the team.

This team doesn't have the picks to snag a top flight big receiver, and it must someone replace whatever ARE didn't give.

Bryant is the best choice.

B Marshall would be even better.

And if he causes a problem, send his azz packing: after all, nothing keeps a guy staright like unemployment.

The Skins have had coaches who could manage difficult personalities. Gibbs could, Marty could. Spurrier, Zorn, Turner, etc couldn't.

I'm thinking Shanahan can manage difficult personalities as well. Thing is, you can only have so many of these guys. Hall + Albert + Portis + Landry + Rogers is already a pretty tall order.

There are others that have been mixed, like Santana, Fred Davis, Devin Thomas and Chris Horton.

Adding Bryant to the mix is really about being able to manage him.

You're misunderestimating the guy. He didn't say "playoff caliber." He said "Super Bowl caliber." Nearly half the GM's in the league can build a playoff caliber roster, but only two (three if you count Vinny) can come up with a Super Bowl roster.

Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm and special teams coach Joe DeCamillis, injured last May in the collapse of the team’s practice facility, "for the first time … took legal aim" at team owner Jerry Jones, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Behm and DeCamillis didn’t target Jones personally or the Cowboys, "but they did add three Jones businesses as defendants in lawsuits filed in August against the builder and related parties," the Morning News reported.


The Jones businesses — general contractor Blue Star Land LP, facility owner Blue Star Development Co. and land owner Cowboys Center Ltd. — failed to have their collapse expert review final repair plans, the amended lawsuit alleges. If they had, the suit states, "defects would have been discovered long before the tragic events that occurred on May 2, 2009."

Arrington's football mind was fine. It was his ego that wasn't.

LaVar was death in the open field. Could not beat an OT one-on-one. If you schemed the guy and got him a clean run at the QB, he'd knock them right out of the league.

Tell him to beat 1 guy, however, and he couldn't do it.

That was the real problem, not the free-lance thing.

The New Orleans Saints did not tender a qualifying offer to restricted free agent cornerback Leigh Torrence(notes).

But they still wanted him to return. The Saints made that a reality today when they re-signed the veteran cornerback to a one-year contract, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.

Torrence returns and provides the Saints with some depth in secondary as well as a solid special teams player. He appeared in only five games last season, mostly on teams, before a shoulder injury forced him to injured reserve in late November. Torrence had 10 tackles and one-half sack.

With the Bengals kicking the tires on Bryant and Terrell Owens both, the Washington Redskins have emerged as a team that may have interest in Bryant as Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports that a visit to Washington is in the works for the veteran.

Bryant, who turns 29 today, is coming off a poor season in a poor offense with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He made only 39 receptions for 600 yards, but had arthroscopic knee surgery during training camp. Bryant complained about his knee throughout the season. He was playing under the franchise tag after a big 2008 when he had 83 receptions for 1,248 yards and seven touchdowns.

The Redskins are hopeful that former second-round draft picks Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas blossom this season. They have not been able to find a consistent target across from Santana Moss and Bryant would be a proven entity even if he has only two 1,000-yard seasons in his career.

ARE, 2009: 50 catches for 530 yards
Bryant, 2009: 39 catches for 600 yards

Pardon me if I'm not that excited.

I understand if the FO wants to add a proven, consistent WR to upgrade the corps. I fail to see the connection between this hypothetical WR and Antonio Bryant.

Can Bryant play Left Tackle? Oh, I forgot, the O'Pitch and Catch should always work with the right receiver and quarterback! Forgive me for my ignorance.

"Any coach who has Terrell Owens on the roster. Any coach who had Keyshawn Johnson on the roster, which includes Parcells and Gruden."


Owens' antics in San Fran occured under Mariucci, not Seifert, and in Dallas occured under Phillips, not Parcells.

Again: a strong coach like Shanahan can get respect and self-control out of guys that others can't.

You think Schottenhiemer would let CP blow off practice the way Zorn did?

Doubt it.

Do you think R Ryan keeps things straight with B Edwards in jetsland?

Yes.

K Johnson's antics in Tampa are why a strong-willed coach and front office put him out: and that's my point.

And two examples like Owens and Johnson in a league of 1,058 players really aren't enough of a sample to say that malcontents can't be corraled by strong coaches.

Look at how M Lewis keeps things in check with C Johnson in Vincy, for example, or Belichek's control of Moss in NE example that you failed to mention.

Bring on Bryant, and if he can't get his stuff straight, send him packing.

why not brandon marshall? i say as the draft appraoches and Denver realizes they won't get much we offer devin thomas and a future 3rd or something. blatimore got Anquan boldin for close to nothing.

If Moss goes to the slot position, JC will continue to throw the short passes, but they will go for bigger gains. Be careful what you wish for!

Bryant is a malcontent.

He got cut by the Cowpies after a huge blowout with then coach Parcells.

Then San- Fran, took a chance on him and Mike Nolan, had a same problem with Bryant that Parcells did.

Thanks. But no thanks, this team needs to rid itself of nitwits. Not gather more !

Well you can close this thread and write Bryant off. Thank God.

As of 13:38:46 its being reported that Bryant has changed his mind.
And is not going to interview with the Skins after all.

That statement is incorrect. Broncos got Cutler higher up in the first round (not from Skins JC trade). Skins JC trade yielded Denver a 2006 pick (I think 22nd), which they traded to SF who drafted Manny Lawson.

****The Redskins' second first-round pick in 2005 was acquired from the Denver Broncos for Washington's third-round pick in 2005 (result: starting CB Karl Paymah), as well as their first pick in 2006 (result: Jay Cutler, pro-bowl 2008) and a fourth round pick in 2006 (result:
Brandon Marshall, two pro-Bowls 2008-09).
