The Pittsburgh Steelers released a statement expressing disappointment in wide receiver Martavis Bryant for being suspended for one year for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy.
Bryant has accepted his suspension after violating the NFL policy with a failed drug test for marijuana, missing mandatory tests and having a diluted specimen, according to soures.
"We are very disappointed that Martavis Bryant has put himself in this current situation of being suspended by the League," Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said. "He is at a crossroads of his professional life, and he needs to understand significant changes need to occur in his personal life if he wants to regain his career as a Pittsburgh Steeler. We are hopeful that Martavis will take the necessary steps to develop the discipline in his personal life to become a successful player and a good teammate."
