RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Just because Red Bryant is comfortable doesn't mean the Seahawks defensive end is satisfied.
With a four-month-old son at home, Bryant is happy to have the security of the new five-year contract he agreed to with Seattle in March. But Bryant still feels that he has plenty to prove on the field.
During his very short time on the free-agent market this year, the New England Patriots were one of the teams to express interest in the mammoth Bryant. Considering they were coming off a trip to the Super Bowl and with the success the Patriots have enjoyed over the past decade, Bryant was flattered New England showed interest in him. It helped prove to him that he's become an impact player in the league.
