was given a four-game suspension by the NFL last week for violating the league's substance abuse policy by testing positive for marijuana.

Bryant is embarrassed by his actions and wants to move forward in his pro career.

"I made a mistake you know, I own up to my mistake, and I just want to move past it and get better," Bryant said via CBS Pittsburgh.

"Honestly, I embarrassed myself, I embarrassed my family, I embarrassed the team and the program, you know, I own up to my mistake and I just want to move forward and learn from my mistake and get better," Bryant said.

Pittsburgh Steelers' teammate Antonio Brown knows that Bryant has loads of potential.

"He’s got a lot of talent, man, and we want him to be the guy that we know he can be capable of becoming, and when you take steps back, it’s not the right thing to do when you’ve got an owner like Mr. Rooney," Brown said.

Bryant had 26 catches for 549 yards and eight touchdowns in his rookie season (9 games). The eight touchdowns were tied for fourth-most among NFL rookies, and he was only the eighth Steeler's rookie to reach 500 yards.

At Clemson, Bryant had 61 receptions for 1,354 yards and 13 touchdowns along with a 17-yard carry and 291 yards on 14 kickoff returns in 1,020 snaps over 37 games (13 starts) in his career ... first in school history in yards per reception (22.2) and tied for 10th in receiving touchdowns.
