Defensive tackle Desmond Bryant, who tied for the Raiders' team lead with four sacks last season and took a police station booking mugshot for the ages after an offseason arrest, is a Raider no more.

Bryant has agreed to a five-year, $34-million contract with the Cleveland Browns, according to numerous reports.

This after linebacker Philip Wheeler agreed to a five-year, $26 million deal with Miami.

So with defensive tackle Richard Seymour's contract voiding, the Tuesday cuts of receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, defensive back Michael Huff and defensive end Dave Tollefson, and after the expected cuts of middle linebacker Rolando McClain and defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, the Raiders could enter the 2013 season with just three returning starters on defense -- Lamarr Houston at defensive end, Miles Burris at weakside linebacker and Tyvon Branch at strong safety.
