Pittsburgh Steelers' president Art Rooney II talked to the media on Friday and had the following to say about Martavis Bryant's future with the team after his season-long suspension by the NFL.

“It is very disappointing. At the same time, we hope, to the extent where it is allowable, we will try to get him help, make sure he gets rehab and those kinds of things, but it is a disappointing situation, to say the least,” Rooney said via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

However, there is uplifting news for the Steelers as the suspension will not count towards Bryant's contract status with the team and they will still have Bryant for two more years on a relatively cheap salary.

Bryant had 50 catches for 765 yards and six touchdowns this past season and in his two NFL seasons (21 games, 8 starts), he has 76 catches for 1,314 yards and an impressive 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.
