ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -Veteran cornerback Fernando Bryant was released Monday by the Detroit Lions after four seasons with the Lions.
The 5-10, 175-pound defender signed with Detroit as an unrestricted free agent in 2004 after five seasons with Jacksonville, who took him in the first round of the 1999 draft, 26th overall. He had seven interceptions in 109 starts in his nine NFL seasons, two of them for the Lions last year.
Bryant played and started in 38 games for the Lions, including all 16 games last season.
Bryant, who played in college at Alabama, was due to make $3.35 million next season.
