Former Steeler Wide Receiver Martavis Bryant’s short time in Oakland has come to a close for familiar reasons.
The wide receiver was waived by the Raiders on Saturday as he is facing yet another suspension from the league, pending appeal, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. Bryant was informed recently that he is facing another ban, his third in four seasons.
This after Oakland traded the 79th overall pick in the 2018 draft to the Steelers for Bryant’s services and reaped one unproductive preseason. At different points during the summer, Bryant was criticized for “not picking up the playbook” and needing “to play better” before catching just two passes for 32 yards in preseason.
Oh and in case you’re wondering what the Steelers did with that 79th pick—they drafted their NFL QB of the future, Mason Rudolph.
For Bryant, the NFL is a thing of the past.
