    Bryant suspended again?

    Steelers Wire is reporting the Raiders are waiting for word from the league, but if true, we just dodged a bullet!

    It’s certainly possible...

    Though I’m hoping for his sake that it is similar to when they held him out of training camp last year...just double checking all of his arrangements in the new city to make sure he is in compliance with the drug policy...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.

    Martavis Bryant set to report to training camp, unaware of any league issue

    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 26, 2018, 12:09 PM EDT

    Not long after he was traded from the Steelers to the Raiders, wide receiver Martavis Bryant was the subject of a report that he could be suspended for another violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. But as far as Bryant knows, he’s good to go for the start of training camp, and the season.

    That’s the word from NFL Network, which reports that Bryant is flying to Oakland now, will be at the first day of camp tomorrow, and hasn’t heard anything about a looming suspension.

    That doesn’t necessarily mean the original report was wrong: When a player is a repeat offender like Bryant, the NFL has the discretion to suspend him for any slip-up. It’s possible that Bryant did something that violates the letter of the rules in the NFL, but that the NFL has decided to soften its stance on substance abuse, particularly with marijuana offenders, and is going to let Bryant slide.

    The Raiders gave the Steelers a third-round draft pick for Bryant, who is capable of being one of the league’s best big-play threats when he’s 100 percent focused on football. It appears that Bryant should be ready to play, with no off-field concerns.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Martavis Bryant suspended indefinitely by NFL

    Posted by Josh Alper on December 14, 2018, 4:20 PM EST

    Raiders wide receiver Martavis Bryant‘s season ended earlier this month when the team placed him on injured reserve with a knee injury and it is unclear when he will be making his next appearance.

    There were reports in September that Bryant was facing a suspension for another violation of the league’s substance abuse policy, but nothing official came from the league until Friday. In a statement, the league announced that Bryant has been suspended.

    “Effective immediately, Martavis Bryant has been returned to the Reserve/Commissioner Suspended list indefinitely for violating the terms of his April 2017 conditional reinstatement under the Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.”

    Bryant was suspended for four games in 2015 and he was suspended for the entire 2016 season for other violations of the policy. Bryant is not under contract for the 2019 season, so no one will hold his rights when and if he is reinstated from his latest ban.

    He played his last down in the NFL but that’s secondary at this point.
