How does this happen when DHB is injured and Bryant is said to have good hands?

Who cares?

There is a month left and 4 preseason games, which is where jobs are usually won and lost. Remember, back in 2008, Sweed was listed as our 3rd guy and there was talk of him getting major playing time. After preseason, he was like 5th on our DC.

And even if DHB is ahead on the depth chart, I doubt he would get a spot over Bryant. DHB is a proven bum at WR and even if Bryant has issues early on, he still has major upside....much like DHB had coming out.

If we did give a spot to DHB over Bryant, I would lose hope for this front office. It wont happen though unless the red flags for Bryant are overwhelming.

Also hoping Tuitt can jump over Cam Thomas in preseason....but I wont get into that one too deep since we already know how they handle DLineman.

Lip service just because he's a "vet". I think Bryant has shown flashes of brilliance and will be on the starting 53. DHB will be cut imho.

agreed.

Bryant is known to be a kid who needs to maintain a chip on his shoulder and a little fire in his belly. This is a motivational tool, nothing more

I hope we don't cut DHB. I think his true value is on ST. He's a beast gunner. WE could carry 6 WR.

Very doubtful we carry 6 WRs.

He is terrible and his value on STs isnt really good enough to warrant giving him a roster spot.

Why can't someone like Thomas fill this role?

Brown
Wheaton
Moore
Bryant
Brown (who is currently the 4th WR on the depth chart)

The team barely plays 4 WR's at a time. So, if they keep DHB for special teams purposes, that most likely is going to mean that one of the young guys doesn't get a hat on game days, anyway. They aren't dressing 6 WR's even if they keep them all on the roster.

DHB is most likely going to be cut. Justin Brown is impressing in training camp and DHB just suffered a concussion Saturday. I hope Brown turns out to be a real stud with all that I'm hearing about him. I wouldn't worry about Bryant falling down the depth chart, regardless where he is on it he'll be in a lot of sub packages. (Most particularly in the red zone)
