The Raiders signed Bryant to a one-year deal that will bring him to The Bay, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per a team source. The team later made the news official.
Bryant's return to Oakland just 10 days after his surprising release certainly is a head-scratcher. The Raiders seemingly gave up Bryant, who the traded a third-round pick for in the 2018 draft, amidst reports that he is facing yet another suspension from the league, which would be his third in four seasons.
Bryant certainly will give Carr a potential deep threat in the passing game, but plenty of question marks remain. Bryant still is facing a potential suspension, per Pelissero, and it wasn't like he was lighting the world on fire during his limited time in Oakland this summer.
We'll see what kind of impact -- and for how long -- Bryant provides starting this Sunday. To say the least, the Gruden era in Oakland has gotten off to an interesting start.
