is battling several wide outs for a roster spot in the Steelers' deep position at receiver.

Bryant was drafted in the 4th round in the 2013 NFL Draft and is expected to contribute in his rookie campaign.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said the following about Bryant (via ESPN.com): “He needs to get in his mind that he can help us and that he’s going to push it hard on every single play like the guys ahead of him are doing. If you watch Antonio Brown, he scores on that second play [against the Bills last Saturday] because that’s how he practices. Every day in practice when he catches a slant he’s going to score even if guys touch him down. That’s how he practices and that’s how he plays and that’s what transitions into big things like that. As a young guy [Bryant] needs to keep learning from the veteran guys, and I think he will do that because he wants to be a great receiver.”
