Bryant was suspended by former general manager Ray Farmer for Cleveland’s final two games. The 25-year-old remains on the Browns’ roster.

Both men are scheduled to be arraigned in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court on Feb 24. Online court records listed no attorney for either.

Bryant was selected by the Browns in the seventh round of the 2013 draft. He had legal issues in college at East Central Oklahoma, where he was twice arrested for selling marijuana to an undercover officer.
