Where do things stand with free agent CB Myles Bryant?

It has been well over a week since the start of free agency, and pending free agent cornerback Myles Bryant is still without a home.

The former New England Patriots veteran defensive back joined the team as an undrafted rookie and worked his way up as a veteran depth option on defense and special teams. He has played in 55 total games with at least 17 starts under his belt.

Former Patriots coach Bill Belichick loved his versatility, which is one of the biggest reasons why he was able to keep a job in New England. But with Jerod Mayo as the new head coach and Eliot Wolf making the personnel decisions, the future might not be so certain for Bryant with the Patriots.

When reading into a possible reunion with Bryant, who played in 75 percent of the defensive snaps last season, ESPN’s Mike Reiss shared his thoughts on the matter in his Sunday notes column.

Reiss wrote:

My read: He lost a top advocate in Belichick. The Patriots would be open to bringing him back on a salary that reflects him more as a depth player than key cog, but there’s been no alignment to date.

This could simply be a situation where Bryant is testing the market for more money elsewhere, and if he’s unable to find it, perhaps he’d be willing to explore a return to New England.

It’s never a bad thing having an experienced player capable of stepping up and filling multiple positions in a pinch. But at this point, especially for a Patriots team with too many holes to fill, Bryant is more luxury than need.
