  1. Fifty eight is way to young to be dead...
    I have several football cards of Bryant. RIP

    He was one of my favorite Rams.

    Plenty of him here.

    Was a star linebacker at Colorado and was one of the top NFL fullbacks back when fullbacks could still lead a team in rushing. RIP

    Dools, watch vid #2 from that link I posted. Bryant makes a great lead block for Wendell Tyler's first TD.

    And funny comment about Zorn on this one.

    Cullen Bryant was a memorable player on Sunday afternoons in the 1970s, as I watched Saint games after church.
    He and Lawrence McCutcheon were the LA Rams backs of note from that era.
    Falcons and 49ers caused lots of havoc at times, too, while Orleans routinely changed coaches and languished in the NFC West.
    RIP, Cullen.

    What I remember most about Cullen Bryant was his huge biceps when he played free safety for Colorado. 1972 - well before the steroid era. He really stood out on the football field. Hit like a freight train. RIP

    Jeez, in just the first few posts this thread has references to him as a free safety, fullback, linebacker and kickoff returner. I take it he was versatile.

    You are a quick study. He became an rb when he went to NFL

    And a damn good one, as noted earlier. Tackling Bryant was like trying to take out a tank with a rifle. My childhood memory bank is replete with visions of Bryant just steamrolling opposing linebackers, back in the days when you had 220-pound linebackers.

    Right you are, Evil O. 58 is way too young. Then again, that's about the life expectancy of an NFL alum.
