I joked at the start of the playoffs that when Ben was busting on Bryant at the end of the regular season to step up his game Bryant probably was thinking he could really use some pot to reduce the stress.

The report is that Bryant is rumored to have failed tests (I thought his next positive test for THC was a 10 game suspension, so if it was for THC I think he failed 2 tests) during the playoffs. Unfortunately my joke about Bryant looking for some stress reduction may have been no joke.

This guy has a serious addiction when it is costing this kind of $$$ and needs to get multi-month treatment somewhere.

The Steelers can move on - Bryant is looking at working menial jobs the rest of his life rather than being set for life before he turned 30.

Time to move on. Sammie Coates, here's your chance.

What history? You will need to refresh my memory on the reoccuring WR draft picks that are assholes. Overall I think they have done very well.

Bryant’s latest violation may have come from something other than a positive marijuana test

Posted by Mike Florio on March 12, 2016, 3:43 PM

It was widely reported last August that the NFL suspended Steelers receiver Martavis Bryant because he failed multiple marijuana tests. His latest predicament suggests a violation for something other than a positive marijuana test.

The three possibilities are: (1) a positive test for something other than marijuana; (2) failure to cooperate with testing, treatment, evaluation or other requirements under the policy or failure to cooperate with the terms of his treatment plan; or (3) at least two separate positive marijuana tests.

The intermediate 10-game suspension applies only to a single positive test for marijuana while in Stage Three of the substance-abuse program. So with Bryant skipping from four games to a full year, it means he allegedly violated the policy without testing positive for marijuana, again.

Bryant has appealed the suspension. If the suspension becomes official, the NFL likely will release more information about what specifically caused it.

It could have been something as simple as missing one of the many tests he now has to take while in Stage Three of the program. Or it may have been a positive test for a banned substance other than marijuana.

Apparently, was released cause he wasn't a good match with bridgewater and his lack of deep passing ability. Ben on the other hand......

Seriously wouldn't mind them bringing him in and giving him a shot. Maybe on a team friendly deal. Knows the system, probably desperate to resurrect his career.

Apparently the suspension is due to blowing off multiple tests

Martavis Bryant planning to check into rehab

Facing indefinite banishment for repeat violations of the NFL’s substance abuse policy, Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Martavis Bryant will check into rehab and undergo evaluation for depression issues, one of his agents, Brian Fettner, told USA TODAY Sports.

“We’re all stunned, me included,” Fettner said, shortly after broke news of the ban Saturday. “We clearly miscalculated the issue. His isn’t a party issue. It’s a coping issue and a depression issue, and he’s got to take care of it.”

Fettner had just landed in Florida and planned to discuss three clinic options with Bryant later Saturday, he said. The plan is for Bryant to enter rehab Sunday, Fettner said, though Bryant's other agent, Tom Santanello, said nothing would happen before Monday as they continue to sort through their appeals options.

Fettner confirmed Bryant is appealing the ban, though getting it overturned is seen as a long shot. It stems from multiple missed drug tests, Fettner said, while also acknowledging Bryant has a problem with marijuana.

The multiple missed tests – which count the same as failed tests – explains why Bryant faces banishment for at least one year, rather than a 10-game suspension for his latest violation after serving a four-game suspension to start last season.

I cant believe this. Looks like Sammie Coates is going to have a shot to shine here. He looked good last year. Wheaton, Coates, Brown, with JJ and Green. Ill take it with LB and DW roaming the backfield.

Just so freaking sad to see all his talent wasted away for something as stupid as pot.

I seriously hope he finds out what's the matter and gets his life sorted out....because it's just sickening to see his potential being flushed down the toilet.

He had soooo much money coming to him....maybe not from the steelers but from someone after his rookie contract.

As sad as this is....and I don't want to cause further pain if there is deeper issue there....but his sad story needs to be known so that others don't fall into the same trap to in pissing it all away....he's the new face of the "don't fffff up like this guy" seminar.

I wish we didn't sign DHB. People can hate on Mike Wallace and trash his character all they want for chasing the money, but he was effective as hell here and never broke any rules. We could have had him on an absolute steal of a contract right now but with DHB locked up there's no chance they do it.

Since we are not in the locker room, hard to say whether or not life with Wallace was a day at the beach the last year of his contract in 2012.  

This December 2012 article walked through the drop off in Wallace's productivity after he held out through most of camp in 2012 after not getting his big contract.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1442233-why-mike-wallace-is-struggling-and-what-it-means-for-steelers-wr-in-2013

And consider the possibility Wallace will sign for low $$ because 2 teams have now given up on him after he left the Steelers - he has been in decline since 2011

Bryant is a loss but one that can hopefully will be addressed from within

I hope his kid gets help and gets his life back on track as it looks like he is sinking to the bottom.

The good thing from a football perspective is Big Ben can throw to anyone. The loss of Bryant takes a dimension from our offense which is someone who can take the top off.

Coates has to step up and if he doesn't I am ok with Bey as a #3.

Now, we need to sign or draft a WR.

someone said jokingly Mike Wallace but Bryant and Wallace have similar games and I would bet Wallace comes super cheap now. As long as he hasn't lost a step.
