Desmond Bryant is one of the smartest players in the NFL. The defensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders graduated from Harvard in 2009 and has carved out a successful NFL career. The 6-foot-6, 311-pounder had 26 tackles and four sacks last season. He started half of the Raiders 16 games in 2012.
Bryant is in the news after he got arrested for criminal mischief in Florida — a misdemeanor charge. His actual arrest isn’t the main issue. What’s drawing headlines is his amazingly strange mugshot.
Remember, Bryant is a smart guy. But if you look at that mugshot, you’ll see a stereotypical dumb jock. The bewildered look on his face makes it even more hilarious.
According to reports, Bryant was drinking around the time of his arrest. Hopefully that is why his mugshot looks so odd.
