Kimball 411

Sports are my life. SMU is my passion. Football is my religion. Mustangs in the Pros. Here's the 411!

Bryan McCann (CB)


Bryan McCann is currently an NFL FA.

Bryan was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as a UDFA in 2010.

He played for the Miami Dolphins in 8 games during the 2012 season. He recorded his first career sack on Tom Brady of the New England Patriots on December 29, 2012.

Bryan  was signed to the Arizona Cardinals on April 4, 2013. He was released by the Cardinals on September 1, 2013 to make room on the roster for players signed off waivers. He had made the 53 man roster cut the night before. Bryan was re-signed to the Cardinals active roster on November 19, 2013. After being with the Cardinals to end the 2013 season and through the 2014 preseason, Bryan was released on August 29, 2014 during final cuts.

Bryan was an All-Freshman Conference USA pick after having 38 tackles and four pass breakups at SMU. He appeared in 11 games in 2006, starting three of the last four. As a sophomore (2007) he started all 12 games and recorded 59 tackles, seven pass breakups, and four interceptions while playing at both corner and safety. Bryan started 11 games in 2008. He had 35 tackles and three interceptions on the year, while returning punts as well. As a senior (2009), he had three interceptions.

In his second NFL game, Bryan recorded his first career interception against the New York Giants. The interception was returned for a 101-yard touchdown. It broke the Cowboys record of 100-yards once held by Mike Gaechter. Bryan’s 101-yard return tied Amos Marsh (101-yard kickoff return) and Ike Thomas (101-yard kickoff return) for the second-longest play in Cowboys history. The longest play belongs to Alexander Wright (102-yard kickoff return). He also became the second rookie in the Super Bowl era to score on a 100-plus yard interception return (Louis Delmas). For his efforts he was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

The next game against the Detroit Lions, he grabbed a batted-down punt and returned it for a 97-yard touchdown, which was the second longest punt return in franchise history; only Dennis Morgan’s 98-yard return in 1974 was longer. With this touchdown Bryan became the first Rookie in NFL history to score a touchdown of 97+ yards in consecutive weeks. For his efforts his was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week and the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week. He was also the first player in franchise history to win Player of the Week honors in two different categories in the same season, and the first since Troy Aikman, in 1993, to win it in consecutive weeks.
