William Bryant, Jr. (born January 15, 1951) is a former American football cornerback in the National Football League (NFL) for the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles.


Bryant played college football at Grambling College (now Grambling State University) and was drafted in the sixth round of the 1974 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. Bryant was also drafted by the Houston Texans in the thirty-third round of the 1974 World Football League college draft. He signed with the Texans and began the 1974 season with them before switching to the Birmingham Americans midway through the season when the Texans encountered financial difficulties.[1] He played for the Birmingham Vulcans in the WFL's ill-fated 1975 season until the league folded on October 22, 1975.
