Yes, I know he is an ex cowboy but that doesn't mean that he isn't worth bringing in.

Antonio Bryant is 6 foot 2, 190 lbs. and 24 years old. He runs a 4.43 and has solid hands. He's physical. He's a good blocker and he will be much cheaper than guys like Reggie Wayne.

He had his share of problems in Dallas but two years with Romeo has already started to steer him in the right direction. Here are his stats for this year if anyones wondering.

16 games 15 games started 69 receptions 1009 yards 14.6 ypc 54 long 4 tds

2004 his first year with the Romeo and the Browns he had 812 yards and 4 tds.

I think he'd be a steal if we could get him. I remember him with the cowboys and he was productive, but not as productive as he was with the browns. Shoot if he can get 1000 + yards with Charlie Frye at QB, then Campbell or Brunell should be the perfect QB for him. Plus coverage will be drawn away from Moss to him, allowing both recievers to get their share of yards and TD's. I'd say get him.

this is why he's a headcase

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Antonio Bryant reportedly had an altercation with coach Bill Parcells during practice Tuesday and was ejected by club security.

Witnesses who spoke on condition of anonymity told the The Dallas Morning News and Fort Worth Star-Telegram for Wednesday's editions that the confrontation began when Bryant complained about his role as the team's third receiver and the number of repetitions he was getting during a drill.

Bryant got into separate arguments with receivers coach Todd Haley and Keyshawn Johnson. When Parcells told Bryant to stop, the third-year player took off his pads and jersey, slammed them to the ground and began to leave the practice field.

Sources told the Star-Telegram that Parcells picked up the jersey and threw it back at Bryant, who then threw it in the face of the approaching coach.

Bryant was then escorted out of practice by security personnel.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Bryant's agent, Peter Schaffer, spoke with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones both Tuesday night and Wednesday and that the agent says things have been worked out between the team and Bryant.

Schaffer added that Bryant will not be traded and that any disciplinary action would be handled internally.

Although Schaffer told Werder that he expected Bryant to attend Wednesday's voluntary field session, the receiver wasn't there and Bryant is not expected to participate in the remainder of the workouts, which are closed to the media, Werder reported.

Cowboys sources told ESPN that Parcells wants to remove the emotion from his confrontation with Bryant before determining what consequences to impose on the mercurial player.

Bryant and Parcells have a history of confrontations, according to Werder. In an interview during the offseason, the player conceded that he and the coach sometimes clashed and that Parcells once told him, "I've got one good fight left in me, don't let it be with you.''

Parcells has demonstrated little tolerance for underachievers, Werder reports, particularly those who challenge his authority as Bryant did in front of the entire team.

Although Bryant has often complained about his role in Dallas and had other practice-field and sideline blowups, he was expected to be a key member of the Cowboys' receiving corps.

Taken in the second round of the 2002 draft, Bryant earned all-rookie honors in 2002 after catching 44 passes for 733 yards and six touchdowns. Bryant caught 39 passes for 550 yards and two touchdowns last year as the third receiver behind Joey Galloway and Terry Glenn.

This year, Bryant is set to be the third receiver behind Glenn and Johnson, who was acquired from Tampa Bay in a trade for Galloway.

Has a reputation of being a problem. Do you really think two teams would let him go if he wasn't? Especially the Browns who don't have the best WRs in the NFL . . .

Well are they letting him go? Or is he just a Free Agent that we're trying to pursue?

I'm just wondering. I mean he got into it with Bill Parcells, yes that's bad, but the guy is only going into his 5th year (that was going into his 2 year btw). Maybe he's matured, and that seems to be the only thing he's done that's damning. It's not like he's a TO who has time and again ruined chemistry, and is an older guy who should be smarter than that. I think we forget that these guys aren't all in their 30's, Bryant is only 2-3 years older than me. He's got some room to grow.

He is a free agent therefore the Browns are not "letting" him go. From what I hear they will attempt to resign him but I'm sure for the right offer and the chance to get back at the Cowboys for letting him go he could choose to go elsewere. He had problems in his second year. He is now in his 5th.

I have seen on Browns forums where Browns fans are praying he gets resigned. He has not had any problems since being there and was a 1000 yard receiver this year with some questionable qb's throwing him the ball.

Romeo has only been with the Browns for one season, but point taken. He and Weiss were still on the Pats SB team last year.

Joe Gibbs knows how to handle trouble makers so I wouldn't be too concerned with that issue. Plus, it was a one time incident, so I wouldn't classify him as a headcase just yet. Big Fat Tuna also knows how to push the wrong buttons with his disciplinarian style of coaching. :2cents:

I kinda like this option as an inexpensive alternative at WR. Plus, you know he would like nothing more than to give BFT a little payback.

Your right about Romeo. My apologies. Nonetheless, he has shown no signs of disciplinary problems during his two years in Cleveland and has game his elevated. This past year he looked like the prospect that was drafted in the first round and had a great rookie year before his problems with the Tuna.
