    There is a difference between being on the giants and getting arrested and getting arrested as a free agent and the giants bringing you in. Not sure how many times the latter has happened

I'd much rather have him than Cullen Jenkins.
    I don't know much about Bryant but I would say that being 6'6" is a negative quality for a DT. It is hard to gain leverage on the guards and centers who are usually a few inches shorter and wider in stature. The only benefit comes in swatting down passes. It is much more critical to stop the run and height won't help us there.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    After watching Canty try his hand at DT in a 4-3 you'd think folks would understand why DT's are stout, wide, strong dudes. Not tall, rangey, types like DE's. That was one of the problems with CC he was a 3-4 DE not a 4-3 DT. Pass on Bryant. Next one up!

    Maybe we could use him at WR to replace Barden?
