Forget about Red Bryant returning to the Seahawks.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Bryant has signed a four-year deal with — you guessed it — the Jacksonville Jaguars, where former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is now the head coach:
Jaguars head into free agency with some momentum: reached agreement with former Seahawks DT Red Bryant on a 4-yr deal.

Bryant was released by Seattle eight days ago as the team began shedding salary to make other moves, such as re-signing Michael Bennett.
Coach Pete Carroll had said during the week that there might be a chance to still bring back Bryant. But that is obviously gone now.
By the way, Bryant can sign since he was already cut by Seattle, and is not merely becoming a free agent. Players becoming free agents have to officially wait until Tuesday to sign with new teams.
Jacksonville under Bradley has made a habit of signing former Seahawks, including CB Will Blackmon, S Winston Guy, WR Stephen Williams, LB Kyle Knox and LB John Lotulelei.
