Antonio Bryant's release comes days after the team signed another veteran receiver, Braylon Edwards. Bryant has been attempting an NFL comeback after knee trouble drove him from the game following the 2009 season. Hamstring problems slowed him during camp with Seattle. The Seahawks had indicated they would give Bryant a chance if he improved his conditioning from June minicamps to training camp.
Edwards, 29, has been productive more recently. Knee and shoulder injuries contributed to his struggles while with San Francisco last season.
