- O’Halloran mentions that Bryant was due a $500,000 roster bonus on Sunday.
Bryant, 30, still had another three years remaining on his four-year, $19 million contract that included $5.255 million guaranteed. He would have made base salaries of $3.225 million (2015) and $3.725 million (2016-2017) over the remainder of the agreement.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Bryant will free up $4.5 million in available cap space while creating no dead money.
In 2014, Bryant appeared in all 16 games for Jacksonville and recorded 22 tackles, a half sack, and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 31 defensive end in a 4-3 defense out of 59 qualifying players.
