Edmonton Elks Cut former Steelers WR Martavis Bryant



Martavis Bryant

The Edmonton Elks of the Canadian football League have cut former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant, the team announced last week.

Bryant had signed with the club in February. The CFL is currently in training camp, with preseason games scheduled to start later this month. Bryant has been playing indoor football in the Fan Controlled Football league in Atlanta.

Last season, Bryant was under contract with the Toronto Argonauts, but never reported to the team and spent all of 2021 on the suspended list.

Bryant has been suspended from the NFL since 2018, when he was suspended indefinitely for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement while playing with the Oakland Raiders.

He was suspended four games in 2015 and then for the entire 2016 season while playing with the Steelers. Pittsburgh traded Bryant to Oakland in 2018 for a third-round draft pick. The team used that pick and another to move up in the third round and select quarterback Mason Rudolph.

In three seasons with Pittsburgh, Bryant caught 126 passes for 1,917 yards and 17 touchdowns.
