Troubled Browns' 7th round pick DE Armonty Bryant is looking to put his recent arrest behind him and work hard to show the Cleveland Browns that they didn't make a mistake in drafting him. Bryant, who already has a felony drug charge from last October hanging over his head, was arrested last week for DUI  in Oklahoma. He reportedlyt had a blood alcohol content of  0.098 percent, just over the state legal limit of 0.08. He was given a deferred one-year jail sentence after pleading no contest, and feared the Browns would cut him after this lastest indicent. But he's still here, and his first matter of business before joing rookie mini camp was to pull head coach Rob Chudinski aside and apologize. "He's very remorseful for the things that have happened," Chudzinski said, NFL.com. "He understands me and what I expect from him and is ready to make amends." "It's a serious matter," he said. "Now that Armonty's gotten here I had a chance to sit down with him and talk about my expectations and make those expectations clear with him. I feel like we have a good support structure here and I feel like we have good guys in the locker room, some guys that were excellent mentors that any player that follows their example -- if you look at D'Qwell Jackson, if you look at Davone Bess and those guys -- will learn how to be a professional." So as of now, Bryant is counting his blessings, and hopes he can stay focused on and off the field. He was already deemed a risk before the draft. "I'm just fortunate the Browns still have faith in me," Bryant said. "Hopefully I can win a spot on this 53-man roster. I just made a stupid mistake at the time. But now I'm just going to let my actions speak for me."
