Veteran receiver Antonio Bryant will try out with the Seattle Seahawks during the team’s mini-camp this week, which begins today, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed.
Bryant, 31, has been out of football for two seasons. His last full season was with Tampa Bay in 2009.
After his stint with the Bucs, Bryant signed a free agent deal with Cincinnati, but was released before the start of the 2010 season because of lingering knee issues.
A second-round pick by Dallas in 2002 out of Pittsburgh, Bryant played three mediocre seasons with the Cowboys before being traded to Cleveland.
After two seasons with the Browns, he signed a four year, $14 million deal with San Francisco.
On Oct. 19, 2006, Bryant was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, speeding, reckless driving and resisting arrest.
The incident triggered a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy, and Bryant was suspended for four games.
Bryant signed with Tampa Bay in 2008 and had his best season, leading the team with 83 receptions for 1,248 yards and seven touchdowns.
He has totaled 372 receptions for 5,685 yards and 30 touchdowns in eight seasons, averaging 15.3 yards a catch.
