Red Bryant inks 4-year deal with Jacksonville Jaguars

Red-Bryant-Seattle-Seahawks

Gus Bradley will have a familiar face on his defensive line.

The Jacksonville Jaguars reached an agreement with former Seattle Seahawks defensive end Red Bryant on a four-year contract, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday, via a person informed of the deal. ESPN first reported the news.

Rapoport, citing a person informed of the deal, says the contract is worth $17 million.

Bryant visited Jacksonville last night and the Jags didn’t let him leave without a deal.

The defensive end played in Seattle the past six seasons — where Bradley was the defensive coordinator from 2009 to 2012 — before being released earlier this offseason in a cost-cutting move. As a vested veteran, Bryant was free to sign with any team prior to free agency opening on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-4, 323-pound Bryant started at end for the Super Bowl champions last year. He was Pro Football Focus’ No. 15 ranked 4-3 end. He has the ability to play multiple positions along the line, which will provide flexibility for a Jaguars defense in need of productive linemen.

On a recent episode of the “Around The League Podcast” we mentioned the Jaguars as a good landing place for the run-stuffing Bryant.

The 29-year-old is plenty familiar with Bradley’s defense and provides a good building block as general manager Dave Caldwell revamps the Jags’ front. Jacksonville still needs to add more pass rushing as Bryant only has compiled 3.5 sacks during his career.
