Former Lions defensive end Armonty Bryant worked out for the Jets on Wednesday, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Bryant was released by Detroit just before he was due to return from a four-game suspension.
Bryant has been banned by the NFL for three times in the past year. The most recent suspension was for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.
Despite playing in just five games in 2016, Bryant managed to tally three sacks. In the previous season, he racked up 5.5 sacks across 14 games. He is not a world-beater, but he could be a viable option for the Jets as they look to fortify their edge rushing depth.
