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.

Before being suspended for the entire 2016 season, Bryant proved to be a big-time playmaker to compliment Antonio Brown with 14 touchdowns in just 21 games in 2014 and 2015.

"I know I’m on my last chance," Bryant said recently to SI.com. "I’ve been watching what happened with Josh Gordon, Manziel, Justin Blackmon."

In two NFL seasons (21 games), Bryant has 76 catches for 1,314 yards and 14 scores. 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.

Bryant is expected to be reinstated by the NFL sometime in the next month. Bryant has received criticism after being suspended for a total of 20 games during his first three NFL seasons, and this week Steelers' GM Kevin Colbert hinted that the Steelers may be moving on from Bryant.
