Bryant did virtually nothing but get beat in his starts, this is a depth move for now since we lost McFadden.

Exactly...these one year deals for people like this (depth players usually) doesnt mean much...since he was in their system some last year and familar with things they decided to sign him so they can have at least someone who knows a little back. But if someone better comes along or beats him out..he can easily be cut during camp...probably without much penalty.

No surprise I guess, like said depth move.
