Former Austin Peay DB victim of brutal Atlanta Falcons tryout hoax
This crosses the line between cruel and evil.
Juantarius Bryant, a former Austin Peay defense attorney, received text from a 404 area code claiming to be from Atlanta Falcons Defense Coordinator Dean Pees. Bryant was invited to the hawks' camp to try it out.
Only the text wasn't from Pees, it was a scammer claiming to be the 71-year-old longtime NFL assistant.
When Bryant got to what he believed would be a rehearsal, he was turned away. COVID-19 protocols limited the number of tryout players a team could have in their rookie mini-camps.
Bryant showed absolute class in his reaction to being the victim of a cruel joke.
"I honestly don't want the person who pulled this stunt on me to be publicly humiliated," he told ESPN via email. "I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy."
Bryant's agent contacted the hawks.
Juan handled this situation with class. I hate the situation and have spoken to representatives from the Atlanta Falcons. Everyone involved is frustrated, but @TheyLoveMyHair_ will get his chance soon. https://t.co/dCDSkx4B8C

Bryant became an All-Ohio Valley Conference first-team defensive player through his 2019 senior season after completing 107 tackles (2.5 for loss). During his career, he played 43 games for Austin Peay with 242 tackles, three forced fiddles and one interception.
