SEATTLE — Before the Seahawks became known for their crazy-good ideas, they turned Red Bryant into a 323-pound defensive end. He was sort of like the guinea pig for greatness.

Bryant was one of the first experiments of the Pete Carroll era four years ago, and though the Seahawks have done a lot of experimenting since then, Bryant remains one of the best success stories. He seemed headed for the waiver wire, a defensive tackle who couldn’t stay healthy. Then, with one unorthodox move from the inside to outside, he became invaluable. His Seahawks legacy will always be that he was the first convert in the creation of a championship defense.
