Browns Rule Out DL Desmond Bryant For The Season, Sign TE David Reeves

The Cleveland Browns officially placed DL Desmond Bryant on the reserve/non-football injury list on Thursday and signed TE David Reeves to a contract.

Bryant underwent surgery last Tuesday for a torn pectoral muscle and was expected to miss the entire 2016 season.

This likely means that third-round pick Carl Nassib will be in position for a decent amount of playing time in year one.

Bryant, 30, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard before joining the Browns a free agent in 2013. He’s in the fourth year of his five-year, $34 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $6 million and $7 million over the next two years.

In 2015, Bryant appeared in 14 games for the Browns and recorded 33 tackles, six sacks and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 54 interior defensive lineman out of 123 qualifying players.
