CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – On the same day that linebacker Armonty Bryant was eligible to return from his 4-game suspension for a PED violation, the Browns cut him Monday.

Bryant, a seventh-round draft choice in 2013, was waived after being suspended by the commissioner in March for a failed drug test.

Bryant pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted drug possession in late July. The Browns suspended Bryant for the last 2 games of the 2015 season following the arrest and he could face additional discipline from the league following the guilty plea.

In October 2012 Bryant received probation until Oct. 2017 after he pleaded no contest following an arrest for selling marijuana at East Central University. He also received a one-year deferred sentence after he pleaded no contest to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol in May 2013 – a week after the Browns drafted him.

In 31 games with the Browns Bryant totaled 71 tackles, 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
