Browns LB Armonty Bryant suspended four games by the NFL
Friday March 4th, 2016

Cleveland Browns linebacker Armonty Bryant has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season, the team announced Friday.

Bryant is being suspended for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. The linebacker was indicted on felony drug charges in February after police found non-prescription Adderall, Oxycodone, marijuana and a handgun in his car during a traffic stop on Christmas morning.

The Browns selected Bryant in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL draft. He played in 14 games last season, recording 40 combined tackles, 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
