The Seattle Seahawks gave a second chance to Mike Williams and it worked out for the wide receiver.
Pete Carroll will see if he can have that kind of luck with an even more veteran receiver this week. Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that Antonio Bryant will get a tryout with the Seahawks in the veteran minicamp that begins today.
Bryant has been out of the NFL for two seasons and last played as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009. The 31-year-old was released by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010 because of lingering knee issues. His best season came in 2008 with the Bucs when he made 83 receptions for 1,248 yards and seven touchdowns.
Carroll had ties to Williams, who played for him previously at USC. There aren’t any obvious ties to Bryant. But it’s a chance for the Seahawks to look at a player and see if he will fit for them.
