Skrine suffered a concussion in Week 6 of the 2015 season, though he played the following week. He also suffered a concussion in Week 15 last season and sat out the next game.
The timeline for Bryant over the last several weeks is interesting. First, reports about a trade request surfaced last week. Bryant and the team tamed the rumors leading up to Sunday’s game against the Bengals. But after another unimpressive out for Bryant, ESPN.com reported Bryant again “wants out … point blank.”
Freeney averaged roughly 23 snaps per game in 2015 with the Arizona Cardinals and 28 last season with the Atlanta Falcons. He likely will have a similar rotational role in Seattle. Frank Clark has played well while starting in place of the injured Avril, so Freeney figures to slot into the rotation behind Clark and Michael Bennett, who starts on the other side.
Tampa Bay signed DE Darryl Tapp in a corresponding move. The Bucs also signed cornerback Deji Olatoye after Robert McClain entered the concussion protocol.
However, Arians refuted that report in a text message to ESPN’s Ian Fitzsimmons.
“I don’t know who put that out there,” Arians told Fitzsimmons. “But that’s something I never think about until the end of the season. I’m just focused on being 1-0 this week.”
Arians also took to Twitter to say he’s not thinking about life after coaching.
In July, Arians said he’d like to at least finish out his contract, which Lebron James Cheap Jerseys Discount Volleyball Jerseys runs through 2018. His contract also includes a team option for the 2019 season.
