Summary

Unfortunately, any discussion of Martavis Bryant has to begin with his off-field issues. Character concerns coming out of Clemson caused Bryant to slide to the fourth-round of the 2014 NFL Draft, where he was scooped up by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Substance abuse issues continued to pose a problem for Bryant in the NFL, with a drug suspension costing him the entirety of the 2016 season. When he returned to the Steelers in 2017, his character and maturity remained an issue. Bryant demanded a trade, bad-mouthed the team and was generally disgruntled. During the 2018 NFL draft, the Raiders traded a third-round selection to the Steelers for Bryant. The Raiders are gambling that a change of scenery will help put the off-field issues in the past. Or at least that his undeniable talent makes him worth the trouble. Bryant is a physical specimen with sprinter speed and an imposing 6'4 frame. When properly focused, he is one of the game's most dangerous deep threats. Bryant is a boom or bust fantasy option. He could be out of the league with even one more slip-up. However, if he has his head on straight, he has WR2 potential due to his big-play ability and red zone presence. (May 28)

Raiders | Martavis Bryant behaving (Thu Jun 21, 01:34 PM) - Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant has stayed clean and hasn't missed a drug test amid rumors that he could be suspended for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

Our View: He knows he is on one of his last chance, if not the very last chance. And Jon Gruden is a lot of things, but he's not known for his tolerance of fools. Bryant has ability but not consistency and his attitude issues make his downside more glaring.

Raiders | Martavis Bryant facing suspension? (Thu Jun 21, 02:17 AM) - The Oakland Raiders fear WR Martavis Bryant could be facing a suspension, believed to be related to the NFL's substance-abuse policy, according to the Las Vegas Journal-Review's Michael Gehlken.

Our View: If he's out for a period of time again, the Raiders might just cut ties. He'd better be on his best behavior and hope that this isn't the end.
