The beginning of the 2017 NFL season will be here in a few months on September 7. Good news for Pittsburgh Steelers fans as former Clemson wide receiver Martavis Bryant will be back as he will be practicing on Tuesday with his Steelers teammates for the first time since the 2015 AFC playoff game against the Denver Broncos. Bryant has been posting pictures and videos of himself working out and by all accounts has stayed in great shape to transition easily to the first days of practice.

Bryant received an indefinite suspension early last year that required a period of roughly a year before he could apply for reinstatement.

In two NFL seasons in just 21 games, Bryant has an impressive 76 catches for 1,314 yards and 14 scores.

Bryant has received criticism after being suspended for a total of 20 games during his first three NFL seasons. The Steelers drafted Bryant in the 4th round, (118th overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft after a Clemson career where he had 61 receptions and 13 touchdowns.
