Default Steelers sign Fernando Bryant

The Steelers signed CB Fernando Bryant, who was a first round pick in '99, played with the Jags, Lions, and Pats. Solid corner who could play nickel this week as Deshea is out.

Bryant is a good vetern CB who can fill in for anyone on this roster. I think this was a good move, next to Law, I think he was the best free agent corner.

whatever, pats secondary has been fine the last couple years ... samuel, harrison, now merriweather, and gay always seemed to make a play here or their. Bryant is fine for a third corner that is a fourth corner or cut when deshea returns

I still don't think mike tomlin has "his guy" at corner. sometime in the near future he is going to spend a big pick on a guy he falls in love with at DB, being a secondary coach and all, i just feel it.

There was a time when this would have been a HUGE signing.

This is not that time.

Dudes just a guy they bring in who can play a little assignment DB: Stay in position and don't get smoked.

Solid pick up and someone who should be able to play the nickel package well while Townsend heals up.
