FILE - In this Feb. 1, 2016, file photo, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach, second from left, is flaked by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, left, and LA 2024 chairman Casey Wasserman, second from right, and UCLA chancellor Gene Block, right, during a news conference in Los Angeles. Bach is visiting Los Angeles to check out proposed venues for the 2024 Olympic Games. The Los Angeles bid committee for the 2024 Olympics is projecting a $5.3 billion budget, a number that would be less than half the cost of the recently completed Rio de Janeiro Games and about a quarter of where Tokyo’s ballooning budget for 2020 currently stands. Bid officials say they can do this because more than 30 venues already exist and those that don't will be built as temporary structures. . (AP Photo/Richard Vogel, File)

Red Bryant isn’t the only premier defensive end scheduled to hit the free-agent market soon.
Cliff Avril, Robert Mathis and Calais Campbell are among them, as is Mario Williams, who was a defensive end for five seasons before moving to outside linebacker in 2011 as the Texans switched to a 3-4 defense.
The Seahawks, in theory, have options at defensive end beyond Bryant.
But as Brock Huard explains in Thursday’s Wrap Up video, Bryant’s familiarity with the organization should make him more attractive to the Seahawks than defensive ends with similar ability.
