  NFL | Martavis Bryant not ready to play    Sat Jul 25, 05:42 PM

Free-agent WR Martavis Bryant (Raiders) is receiving interest from several teams, but he still has not applied for reinstatement at this point.

Footballguys view: Bryant hopes to play at some point but still needs to do more work. It sounds like Bryant may not play in 2020 but could be aiming for a return in 2021. Bryant will be 28-years old next offseason but it sounds like some teams could still have interest.

  NFL | Maratvis Bryant seeks reinstatement    Mon Jul 15, 06:45 PM

Free-agent WR Martavis Bryant (Raiders) has applied to the NFL for reinstatement. He has been working with the NFL and the NFL Players Association to address his mental health issues.

Footballguys view: Bryant was most recently suspended in December for violating a policy from a previous ban. He has been suspended three times in the past four years for violations of the league's substance abuse policy. If healthy and on the right track, Bryant can still be a deep threat in the league. It's unknown if or when Bryant would actually be reinstated.

  Raiders | Martavis Bryant out a couple weeks    Wed Nov 14, 03:35 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) will miss a couple of weeks and could be out longer after injuring his posterior cruciate ligament last week, according to head coach Jon Gruden.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are going to be pretty shorthanded with Bryant missing at least a couple of weeks. They traded away Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson is battling an injury at this time (knee, questionable) so they may have to use Brandon LaFell and Seth Roberts more than ever.

  Raiders | Oakland talking up Martavis Bryant     Fri Oct 26, 12:12 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant is expected to be a bigger part of the offense following the trade of Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, Oct. 22.'I think it helps a player like Martavis Bryant because he's got tremendous skills, tremendous size and speed, and he's still really kind of learning the system. I think he's such an explosive player. ... I think it will help them more he's in the system, the more he's here and is able to sit around and stay with one system,' offensive coordinator Greg Olson said.

Footballguys view: Bryant gets high value deep targets and the Raiders will likely be playing from behind and passing more than running in the second half of the season, but he's still only bench depth unless he and Derek Carr heat up.

  Raiders | Martavis Bryant has coach's confidence    Thu Sep 13, 11:08 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant has the confidence of head coach Jon Gruden after re-signing with the team Tuesday, Sept. 11. 'He's a guy who has proven he can go up and get the deep ball in contested situations,' Gruden said of Bryant. 'He can run away from you. He can make you miss. He can make big plays down the field. We're hoping we can bottle up where he is now. He's in a great place. He has a great state of mind. We'll see what happens.'

Footballguys view: Bryant still faces potential sanctions from the NFL but for this week, he's active. That said, this is a bad matchup against the Denver Broncos and last week didn't make us feel good about this passing offense anyway. We'd avoid Bryant this week.

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Martavis Bryant (Raiders) is officially signing a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, Sept. 11, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: It was just 10 days ago that Bryant was let go by the Raiders...and now he's back. That's what happens when Derek Carr clearly needs some help at the position. Bryant is still facing a possible year-long suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Free-agent WR Martavis Bryant (Raiders) could be back with the Oakland Raiders next year, according to head coach Jon Gruden. 'Perhaps we'll get Martavis again next year and get the best out of him,' Gruden said.

Footballguys view: The Raiders gave up the no.79 overall pick for Bryant in the 2018 NFL draft and he couldn't make it through to the final roster. Bryant is facing a suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. It's rare we see players come back from another round of suspensions.

Footballguys view: The Raiders gave up a third round pick (no.79 overall) for Bryant this year in the 2018 NFL draft. Bryant was reportedly struggling in camp with the Raiders and this new suspension essentially sealed his fate.

Footballguys view: Bryant has already had a disappointing summer and might be losing snaps to Ryan Switzer in three-wide sets. He's oozing with physical talent, but Bryant's role and momentum are putting him on the fringe of draftable players in redraft leagues.

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant has been locked to the second unit, without many 11-on-11 reps early in camp, according to Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Footballguys view: Ryan Switzer may end up with more snaps and targets than Bryant at this rate. Bryant has tons of physical ability, but he might not have a big role in the Raiders offense after they spent a third round pick on him.

  Raiders | Martavis Bryant not grasping playbook    Wed Aug 8, 02:11 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant is struggling to learn the playbook so far in training camp, according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson. The Raiders are trying to simplify Bryant's learning process so they can get him on the field more.

Footballguys view: Bryant is a superfreak athlete who can take the top off the defense. Things shouldn't really be that complicated for him as he usually wins with physical traits (size, speed, athleticism) and not savvy route running. That being said, Bryant needs to pick up the playbook better if he wants to contribute at a high level.

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant has flashed his size and speed in training camp, but head coach Jon Gruden wants to see more scheme versatility and consistency from him this summer.

Footballguys view: Bryant is more of a role player than core piece of the Raiders offense, and he has to impress a new staff and riff with a new quarterback. He's only an end of the bench pick despite immense ability and potential.

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant can be a 'dynamic receiver' for quarterback Derek Carr, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie, and McKenzie said Oakland had been working on trading for Bryant for some time.

Footballguys view: The best ability is availability and Bryant just hasn't been for much of his career. If he's on the field he could be a nice pairing with Amani Cooper, but he cannot afford to make any mistakes off the field. And the Raiders can't afford for him to make them either.

Updating an ongoing story, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is not the subject of trade plans, according to Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert. He added teams have called about Bryant, but Colbert said Wednesday, Feb. 28, the wide receiver is not on the trading market.

Footballguys view: Reports surfaced last week about the Steelers fielding phone calls about Bryant. They are not actively shopping him, but it would be wise to listen to offers. Saying that Bryant is not going anywhere could just end up driving his price up...if in fact the team would feel comfortable trading him away. With JuJu Smith-Schuster looking like a star, Bryant is somewhat expendable for the Steelers.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he wants to return to the Steelers next season and will be ready for offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Bryant has had an...interesting...career with the Steelers so far. In addition to missing the 2016 season due to suspension, Bryant has had some verbal jabs with both QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR JuJu Smith-Schuster. A fourth-round pick in 2014, Bryant was scheduled to be a free agent in 2018 but his contract tolled due to the suspension. The Steelers have him under contract for one more year at the low, low price of $705,000 (in NFL terms of course!)

Footballguys view: Bryant wasn't a big part of the passing game, but he did make two big plays, including a fourth-down touchdown that gave the Steelers a boost at the end of the first half. He'll be the team's #3 receiver next year, but still relevant in fantasy leagues.
