Antonio Bryant Cut: Five Possible Landing Spots For The Veteran Receiver
First off I want to take the opportunity to say I told you so. Terrell Owens still has game, and made Antonio Bryant an easy cut for the Bengals.
Perhaps it was his injury or perhaps it was the fact that Batman and Robin don't need a third wheel, but Bryant is now looking for a job. Luckily for him there are plenty of teams out there that are in need of a veteran wide receiver.
Let's take a look at five teams that could use the Bryant on their team.
The Raiders have needed a veteran receiver on their roster for a while now. They have three young receivers who are capable of carrying the load, but are an injury away from being in trouble.
Chaz Schilens recently had surgery and now the Raiders must start thinking about bringing in a veteran guy like Bryant.
Louis Murphy has shown he can be a playmaker, and Darrius Heyward-Bey looked like a bigger and better wideout against the 49ers.
Still if the Raiders plan to make it through the season and compete they must take a look at Bryant as an insurance policy.
Jason Campbell needs more help, and can't afford to lose any of his top three guys or this season could be a struggle for the passing game.
Brett Favre is back and the Vikings are ready to make another run at the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for the Vikings their top two receivers are fighting up hill battles. Sidney Rice had hip surgery and will force him to miss a lot of the season.
Percy Harvin is still having battles with migraines and was rushed to the hospital after collapsing during practice.
Unless the Vikings feel good about signing Javon Walker and trading for Greg Camarillo they really should consider looking at Bryant.
St. Louis Rams
While the Vikings have a veteran QB who needs more weapons the Rams have a rookie QB who needs a lot more help. The Rams have nobody at receiver and that was before Donnie Avery's injury that ended his season.
If the Rams want to make life easier for Sam Bradford this year they must look at Bryant and perhaps five other guys who can catch a football.
Stephen Jackson can only handle so much of the load, and Bradford needs more weapons, or at least one for that matter.
The Seahawks are the only team who have permission to speak with Vincent Jackson. That means the Seahawks are looking for more wideouts to help Matt Hasslebeck and TJ Whosyourmomma.
Antonio Bryant may need some time to heal, but he won't need much money after his eight million dollar chech he received from the Bengals.
Perhaps Seattle could get him at a bargain price if they pursue him.
San Diego Chargers
Speaking of Vincent Jackson, it seems as if he is ready to sit out all of next year. The Chargers could easily forget about him if they bring in Antonio Bryant. Jackson is a good player, but he is no Brandon Marshall.
Phillip Rivers makes Jackson look good and he can do the same with anyone else. If the Chargers can get Bryant at a bargain price, then they could afford to trade Jackson and get some extra draft picks for next year.
The Chargers don't need Jackson to make a title run, but they need a proven veteran. Bryant makes a lot of sense for the Chargers.
