Pittsburgh Steeler's head coach Mike Tomlin had the following comments on the rookie wide receiver play: "Obviously he made a few plays today, but he's a big guy, so we expect him to consistently make big guy plays," said Tomlin. "I'm interested in him developing a complete game."
Steelers' general manager Kevin Colbert also had the following to say about Bryant: "He's been working and growing," Colbert said. "You see the athleticism and the speed, and potential.
