Bryant was suspended the entire 2016 for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. Bryant was also suspended the first four games of the 2015 season for multiple failed drug tests due to marijuana use.
A former fourth-round pick out of Clemson, Bryant has proven to be an excellent playmaker when on the field. He has scored 15 touchdowns in 21 career regular season games. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin recently said he was looking forward to getting Bryant back on the field next season.
