Red Bryant’s Reunion With Gus Bradley Will Give AFC South Headaches In 2014
If nothing else, the AFC South is going to give NFL fans plenty to talk about in 2014. Not only do you have the up-and-coming Indianapolis Colts poised for another break-out season, the Jacksonville Jaguars are also making vast improvements. Second-year head coach Gus Bradley is turning a corner with this brutal franchise and he took a big step toward relevance on Saturday.
Red Bryant spent six years with the Seattle Seahawks from 2008-2013, where he learned a lot from then-Seahawks defensive coordinator Bradley. Now, the two have reconnected in Florida as the massive defensive end agreed in principle to a four-year deal worth around $17 million.
Bryant has made a name as one of the NFL’s most disruptive defensive linemen when it comes to stopping the run. You can bet that Bryant took one look at the AFC South and said “sign me up!” Two games each year against the Colts’ weak offensive line and the scuffling Houston Texans will definitely help Bryant’s statistics.
Unfortunately, that might be all we see from Bryant during his stint with the Jags. Let’s face it: Jacksonville is going to need more than a soon-to-be 30-year-old, who was written off by the reigning Super Bowl champions to get back atop the AFC South.
