Oakland FA Bryant arrested

Oakland free agent defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested in Miami on misdemeanor criminal mischief charges.

Bryant is a free agent and he is expected to be sought after on the open market. Oakland will be tight against the cap and it may have a difficult time re-signing Bryant. As long as the charge remains a misdemeanor, it likely won’t really affect Bryant’s ability to get a solid deal in free agency.

Here is more chatter linking the Chiefs to San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith.

U-T San Diego is reporting that A.J. Smith, fired as the Chargers’ general manager after the season, is in Indianapolis, trying to line up a job as a scout with a team.
