Steelers could be without Bryant

Super Bowl LI Odds 3/13/15 – Steelers’ Martavis Bryant facing yearlong suspension

The Pittsburgh Steelers could be dealing with a big hole in the offense as reports indicate that Martavis Bryant could be suspended for a year.

ESPN is reporting that Bryant is facing a yearlong suspension due to the NFL drug testing policy. He already served a four-game suspension last season or the same reasons and now would be facing a yearlong suspension, unless he is able to win an appeal. Bryant’s agent Brian Fettner told USA Today that Bryant is battling depression and not addiction.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Steelers are currently one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl next season, as they have 10/1 odds to win it all while being listed at 4/1 to win the AFC Championship. Pittsburgh’s over/under for wins is listed at 10.5.

Bryant is coming off his second season in the NFL, both with the Steelers. After picking up 26 receptions for 549 yards and eight scores in 2014, he followed it up with 50 receptions for 765 yards and six scores in 2015. Bryant averaged 15.3 yards per catch this season. His loss would certainly impact the offense and perhaps force the Steelers to look for a replacement in free agency or the NFL Draft.
