It always sort of felt like he'd end up back here. Incredible for someone to waste the talent he has. Steelers got out just in time and possibly their QB of the future.

Ron Cook: As Martavis Bryant's saga gets sadder, the Steelers' decision looks smarter

Let's hope the receiver doesn't waste his immense talent

RON COOK
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
JUN 15, 2018

I thought Jamie Dixon was a bad hire. He became the winningest basketball coach in Pitt history. I said Jim Rutherford was too old and too washed up for the Penguins. He built consecutive Stanley Cup winners and is headed to the Hall of Fame.

I wrote the Pirates wouldn’t win again in my lifetime. They beat the Cincinnati Reds in a wild-card playoff game on one of the most spectacular nights in Pittsburgh sports history. I called Hines Ward a singles hitter and said Antonio Brown wasn’t worth the really big money. Ward was Super Bowl XL MVP, and Brown has become the greatest receiver in Steelers history.

You get the idea.

I’ve been wrong a million times over the years.

Martavis Bryant makes it a million and one.

I’m the dummy who said the Steelers made a bad decision by trading Bryant to the Oakland Raiders for a third-round pick in the April draft. They used that pick to trade up three spots to take Mason Rudolph, who the organization thinks has a real chance to be Ben Roethlisberger’s backup this season and, eventually, his successor. Bryant, meanwhile, reportedly is looking at another possible suspension from the NFL, which, considering he already has been suspended twice, could end his career.

Steelers made the smart move and got MR out of the trade. An excellent move.

Would rank of there with the Bettis trade if Rudolph replaces the retired Ben and wins a ring.

BTW, saw recent pics of Ben, he's trim and ready to go.

I don't know if the FO had an idea that this would happen or just lucky but getting a RD 3 pick for him sure looks great now. What a waste of talent. I wonder now if he'll ever play again.

The Steelers FO isn't perfect (none are), but when it comes to parting ways with players, they're right far more often than they're wrong.

perhaps , but the thing that so often pisses me off is they normally don't attempt to get any compensation for the players. even if it means losing them with a year left on their contract. if you pretty much already know your not going to re up a contract, then put them on the trading block while you can get something for them ...i mean look at the deals the Patriots*** are always pulling out of their asses... Rolling Eyes

colbert and tomlin admitted they were not actively seeking to trade bryant. had gruden not pursued him the steelers would be shit out of luck , as usual, and god only knows how the draft selections would have played out without the extra 3rd. maybe they don't use a second on a receiver ...

i'm not going to give them a pat on the back for grudens stupidity.

Good points. I guess in some cases, it's addition by subtraction. But I agree with you, obviously, that it would be nice to get something in return when possible, like we did this time.

Kind of wondering if the Bryant suspension is even a thing anymore, or if the media was just trying to drum up drama. Haven't heard anything about his alleged suspension as of late and the the mean time we've seen Edelman, and Jameis Winston both get suspended.
