UK Athletics announced on Tuesday that former Kentucky Wildcats football player Warren Bryant has passed away. He was 65.
Bryant played for the Wildcats from 1973-1976 and made history his senior season, helping his team to a nine-win season, as well as a share of the SEC Championship.
In addition to his team’s success, Bryant was quite decorated himself. The standout offensive tackle was selected to the All-SEC First Team three times and was a First Team All-American. Bryant had quite the career at Kentucky and, to no surprise, that transitioned to a selection in the NFL Draft.
Bryant went sixth overall in the first round in the 1977 draft to the Atlanta Falcons. He earned All-Rookie honors, and the following year, helped lead his team to their first playoff berth in franchise history.
Bryant finished his career with the Los Angeles Raiders in 1984 just before hanging up his cleats. He was a member of the UK Athletics Hall of Fame, Legends of the SEC and Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame. May he rest in peace.

RIP to a legend.
He appears to be built for the moment.
Will Kyrie soon be traded?

It’s up to the Red Sox to knock off the cheaters.
This is indeed a surprise.
