The Seattle Seahawks are seemingly determined to strike gold with a veteran wide receiver in training camp. After a little more than a week, the team officially parted with Antonio Bryant following Sunday's practice. Bryant was signed on July 26 and began working out with the team, but it was quickly decided he was no longer capable of being a playmaker anymore.
Bryant had not played in the NFL since 2009. He missed all of 2010 with a knee injury, and was unable to find a team last year. It appears his career is now over.

Carson Wiggs, 22, was added to the roster earlier in the year as a non-drafted free agent out of Purdue. He will likely serve as depth for the Seahawks in training camp and in the season, but he could see some playing time should an injury arise for Steven Hauschka.
