The Seahawks house a surplus of receivers with question marks. They added Braylon Edwards to the mix in July, and it's possible his presence made Bryant expendable. It's also possible Bryant has nothing left in the tank.
The Seahawks also cut Mike Williams last month, leaving Sidney Rice -- who's coming off double shoulder operations and a rash of concussions -- as the No. 1 receiver alongside the eventual winner of a race between Edwards, Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin, Ben Obomanu, Kris Durham and Ricardo Lockette. The Green Bay Packers, they are not.
Back to Bryant for a second. The release won't cost the Seahawks a thing. Brian McIntyre confirmed the old-as-the-trees pass-catcher didn't receive any guaranteed money. The Seahawks were burned on room and board, a few pairs of sneakers and the cost of two plane tickets, but that just sounds like a bad date. Pete Carroll and friends march on.
