Bryant can apply for reinstatement in January and if he remains clean between now and then, there is a good chance that will ultimately happen sometime before the team reports to training camp in 2017. Being as Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was recently reinstated by the league, Bryant definitely has hope.
Bryant, the Steelers fourth-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, is currently serving a one-year suspension for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy multiple times.
