Bryant returns for his sixth season in Winnipeg after originally signing as a free agent in 2015. He had a stellar 2019 campaign, and for the third-straight season was named the West Division nominee for Most Outstanding Lineman. Playing in all 18 regular season games and all three postseason games in 2019, he was also named a league all-star for the third consecutive season – the fifth time in his career – as he anchored the left side of an offensive line that was part of the CFL’s top rushing units once again.

Bryant, who was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Lineman in 2017 and 2018, has started every game at left tackle since signing in February of 2015, boosting his consecutive games played streak to 101.

The ten-year CFL veteran spent his first five seasons in Calgary, is a two-time Grey Cup champion (Calgary in 2014, Winnipeg 2019) and has been named a CFL All-Star in 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Bryant has started 156 CFL games, ten playoff games, and three Grey Cup games.
