Calgary signed Bryant as a free agent on June 16, 2010. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Denver Broncos in April of 2009 and attended training camp with the National Football League club.
Bryant has started 14 games at left tackle. He was on the one-game injury list for Game 7.
Bryant started 16 games and the Western Final at left tackle. He was on the one-game injury list for the final two games of the regular season. Bryant was named a West all-star, a CFL all-star and was the Stamps nominee for the CFL's Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman.
Bryant started 13 regular-season games, as well as the West semifinal, West final and Grey Cup. He saw action at his usual right tackle spot, but also at left tackle, a position he hadn’t played since college. He was part of an offensive line helped the Stamps offence lead the CFL in rushing touchdowns (20) and rank second in points scored (535), rushing yards (2,088), first downs (395) and pass-completion percentage (67.0). The unit also paved the way for running back Jon Cornish’s CFL rushing title.
In his second season with the club, Bryant entrenched himself as a starter, manning the right tackle position for 17 regular-season games, as well as the West Division semifinal in Edmonton. Bryant was a key figure on an offensive line that relinquished the second fewest sacks in the CFL (34) and helped the Calgary offence rank second in rushing yards per attempt (6.2) and offensive yards (6,954). He was the Stampeders’ nominee for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman award.
After joining the Stampeders during the pre-season, Bryant was on the practice roster until October, when he ably answered the call to fortify Calgary’s injury-depleted offensive line. The rookie made three starts at right tackle and helped the Stamps hold the opposition to two sacks in those three contests. Calgary won two of the three games in which Bryant was in the lineup, averaging 127 rushing yards in doing so.
Bryant was a two-year starter at left tackle for East Carolina and helped the Pirates capture the Conference USA championship in 2008. He was part of an offensive line that helped East Carolina average 182.9 rushing yards per game in 2007. He joined the Pirates as a walk-on after transferring from Elizabeth City State.
Bryant played three seasons for Goldsboro High School and was named the team’s defensive player of the year in 2003. He majored in economics at East Carolina.
