RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Bryant announced this offseason that he's been medically cleared to resume football activities following a December procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat. Since then, the 28-year-old has already been able to participate in Browns' voluntary minicamp, and expects to be ready for the beginning of the 2014 season. The 6-foot-6, 310 pound Bryant has 15 sacks and 155 combined tackles over five NFL seasons, and projects to be a starter on Cleveland's defensive line. He'll be used primarily as a run-stopper in Jim O'Neil's 3-4 defensive scheme.

2013

Bryant is a big, powerful defender who has been fairly productive of late. He notched nine sacks and 71 tackles in his last two seasons in Oakland, but his role in Cleveland as a run-stuffing 3-4 end will limit his fantasy IDP potential.

2012

Bryant has appeared in all but one game for the Raiders over the last three seasons. He figures to be part of the Raiders' defensive line rotation again in 2013.

2010

Bryant will be a reserve defensive tackle for the Raiders.
