Buccaneers sign another WR Project, this year its Antonio Bryant's turn

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have added another Wide Receiver to their arsenal. Signing former San Francisco 49er, Antonio Bryant, who will attempt to do what David Boston before him could not do and that's make the Bucs Wide Receiving Unit better. Bryant is a 6'2 190 pound 26 year old receiver. He's only two years removed from going over a 1,000 yards on the season for the Cleveland Browns.

He missed all of 2007 because nobody would give him a flyer. Why would nobody give him a flyer you ask? Because he's gone at it with two of his previous Head Coaches in the Fins Bill Parcells and the 49ers Mike Nolan. Toward the end of the season in '06 he was stopped for going over 100 miles an hour in his Lamborghini, while... you guessed it, driving under the influence, resisting arrest and was charged with reckless driving. He was suspended for the next four ball games, two of which would carry over into the '07 season.

From news of the weird, while other Football Players were, shockingly, playing football during the 2007 season; Antonio Bryant was busy suing the league for administering drug tests on him while he was unemployed. At any rate, Bryant has played well in the league before and he didnt take performance enhancers to take him to the level he's played on, so I'd say there's a good chance he could return to form. Would I count on it? Of course not. Is his presence on the team interesting? Heck yeah it is.. Hopefully he doesnt show his ass like he has in the past.
