Browns Say Cutting Armonty Bryant Was Considered, But Team Chose A Second Chance
Rob Chudzinski admitted Friday that the Browns contemplated cutting ties with seventh-round pick Armonty Bryant following his DUI arrest, but opted to give him another chance.
The DUI came on the heels of his marijuana arrest in October, and a promise to the Browns on draft day to be more mature.
"We discussed all the options and ultimately decided that we wanted to bring him in and sit down and talk to him, and that's the process we went through," Chudzinski said following the first practice of rookie minicamp.
Chudzinski met Bryant, one of the team's five draft picks, in person for the first time on Thursday and laid down the law.
"It's a serious matter," Chudzinski said. "Now that Armonty's gotten here, I had a chance to sit down with him and talk about my expectations and make those expectations clear with him.
"I feel like we have a good support structure here and I feel like we have good guys in the locker room, some guys that were excellent mentors that any player that follows their example – if you look at D'Qwell Jackson, if you look at Davone Bess and those guys – will learn how to be a professional. Ultimately Armonty needs to show that he's going to be accountable and I expect that out of him."
