Today’s is Joseph Anthony Bryant’s 29th birthday.
Who? Oh sorry. You know him better as Red, the run-stuffing, kick-blocking defensive end for the Seahawks. Bryant has gone by Red as long as he can remember, so we figured this was a good time to revisit the organ of the nickname that has become his name.
Bryant first shared the root of Red after the Seahawks selected him in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
“My mom said that I was a red baby,” Bryant explained. “She’s been calling me Red since I was a baby.”
Obviously, she isn’t the only one.
