The Pittsburgh Steelers are patiently awaiting word on the status of their suspended wide receiver, Martavis Bryant, who received an indefinite suspension early last year that required a period of roughly a year before he could apply for reinstatement.

Well, a year has passed so Bryant was in New York last Thursday to meet with the NFL's Management Council.

"Among the conditions for being cleared to play again, Bryant was told to assemble a plan detailing safeguards that would help him prevent a relapse upon returning to Pittsburgh," the Sporting News reported recently.

Bryant will still have to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell or one of the league's representatives to get the go-ahead for the 2017 football season.

In two NFL seasons (21 games), Bryant has 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.
