. Heyward-Bey is taking a mentoring role in helping Bryant with the details of the position during Steelers' OTAs.

"Martavis has a chance, talent-wise, to be the best to ever play.” Heyward-Bey told Pittsburgh Sports. "He has the potential to be extremely special."

"I see him putting in the work now," Heyward-Bey said. "He’s starting to figure out what it means to be a professional. That’s important. Before, he was the man in college. Now this is his job. He gets that now. He’s starting to understand life in a different way."

Bryant spent his offseason doing MMA training and working out with Roethlisberger and several teammates in Georgia.

He had 26 catches for 549 yards (21.1 YPC) and eight touchdowns in his rookie season (9 games, started 3). The eight touchdowns were tied for fourth most among NFL rookies and he was only the eighth Steeler's rookie to reach 500 yards.
