Martavis Bryant has the speed and talent to be a game changer for the Steelers and unfortunately for the team and himself he will not be available for the entire 2016 season! Bryant was suspended for at least one year and possibly more after he violated the NFL’s substance abuse policy.


Bryant’s suspension is for without pay which means he will lose every penny of the $600,000 he was scheduled to earn next season.

General manager Kevin Colbert said the Steelers “are very disappointed” with Bryant for his suspension.

“He is at a crossroads of his professional life, and he needs to understand significant changes need to occur in his personal life if he wants to regain his career as a Pittsburgh Steeler,” Colbert said.

One of his agents, Brian Fettner, told USA Today Sports that Bryant, who served a four-game suspension last season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, is fighting depression and plans to enter rehab Sunday for evaluation.

No word on what specifically Bryant did to violate the policy but let’s hope he gets things straightened out while he still has age on his side.
