Bryant spent four years at Washington before joining the NFL in 2020. He started as a defensive back for the Huskies in his sophomore season after being a walk-on and a backup during his true freshman year.
He hasn’t looked back since. Bryant played in 39 games over the course of the following three seasons, recording four interceptions, three forced fumbles, and 3.5 sacks. Each year, he was also selected as a second-teamer or honorable mention for the All-Pac 12 team.
Bryant did not hear his name called in the 2020 draft despite having a good college career. He had to go through a free agency instead before finally making it to New England.
He was able to play sporadically in both of his first two seasons as a pro despite being an undrafted rookie and the team’s depth at the position.
Bryant participated in a total of 22 regular-season and postseason games, recording two interceptions, one forced fumble, and one sack for every game.
Bryant was given a two-year contract with a 2022 expiration date when the Patriots added him to their 53-man roster in October of last year. Simple enough: Bryant has a non-guaranteed salary of $895,000, which also serves as his cap hit, for that second and final season.
Under the NFL’s Top-51 rule, that amount does not now go against New England’s books; he will only be subject to the salary cap if he is selected after roster reductions in late August.
