Bryant Expected To Cash In Next Season

Peter King of note that Bucs wide receiver Antionio Bryant will be hitting the NFL version of the lottery next season.

Peter King of notes Antonio Bryant will hit the NFL version of Lotto in '09.

In his weekly Monday Morning Quarterback column on, Peter King notes that Bucs WR Antionio Bryant will be getting a nice little pay raise for the 2009 season. Bryant is an unrestricted free agent and Bucs fans can make a sober argument he has evolved into this season’s MVP for Tampa Bay.

Antonio Bryant might be a pain in the keister, but he’s going to make some money in free-agency after the season. He’s making $605,000 this year on a one-year deal with the Bucs. He’ll make $6.5 million next year, somewhere. (Not saying he’ll average that for a long-term deal. I am saying he’ll make that much in salary and bonuses, at least.)

Joe wouldn’t be shocked if Bruce Almighty slapped a franchise tag on Bryant to keep him on the Bucs roster. Joe only hopes Bill Parcells keeps his mitts off him until after the Super Bowl.
