There are rumors that Seattle will release the massive lineman. Could he be a viable DT/run-stopping DE alternative if the Giants can't resign Linval Joseph?
Although Bryant is coming off a Super Bowl title and will only turn 30 by the time 2014 begins, it seems likely that he would come cheaper than a new contract with the Anvil. Red would have cost the Seahawks $8.5 mil for the upcoming year, with $4.5 mil coming in salary, $1 mil in signing bonus, and a $3 mil roster bonus due June 1st. Some commentators, including Ed and the folks at ESPN, have set the baseline for Joseph's new deal at a minimum of $6 mil per year for a long term deal.
Signing Bryant at a reasonable rate (around $4 mil per year for a 2-3 year deal) could provide the Giants with greater long-term flexibility and allow them to explore other positions of need (i.e. offensive lineman, pass rusher, offensive play maker, CB) in the draft/rest of free agency during this off-season.
