Cleveland Browns seventh-round draft pick Armonty Bryant was arrested Friday morning in Ada, Oklahoma, and charged with driving under the influence. Bryant posted $500 bail and was released from the Pontotoc County Justice Center at 10:30 a.m. Friday, and he now faces a misdemeanor DUI charge and is scheduled to be arraigned at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in Pontotoc County District Court.
The Browns drafted Bryant in the seventh round out of East Central University despite his troubled past. Bryant was suspended for three games last season after being arrested in October for selling $20 of marijuana to an undercover officer.
In a rare bit of good news for the Browns, NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah considers tight end Jordan Cameron a perfect fit for new offensive coordinator Norv Turner’s offense, and is already labeling him as fantasy sleeper pick for this season.
The Baltimore Ravens may already have found former All-Pro safety Ed Reed’s replacement, as Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports first-round draft pick Matt Elam has done very well thus far in Ravens minicamp, as well as second-round linebacker Arthur Brown.
Head coach John Harbaugh on his two rookies:
Matt really picked things up quickly, same for [second-round inside linebacker] Arthur [Brown]. He really did a nice job of communicating in the back end which isn’t usual for a rookie. Most rookie defensive backs all defensive players have a tough time with the communication part because they’re not confident enough to make the calls.
He’s smart. He picked it up quickly. He jumped back there quickly and made the calls with force. He was very forceful back there and played fast. He looked good.
