Former Raider Martavis Bryant applying for NFL reinstatement, report says

Raiders WR Martavis Bryant suspended indefinitely after losing appeal, report says

Martavis Bryant wants back into the NFL.

The former Raiders wide receiver was suspended by the league indefinitely in December 2018 but is now applying for reinstatement, according to a report from ESPN.

The 27-year-old has been working with both the NFL and NFL Players Association on the steps he needs to take in order to address mental health issues, which include therapists and ADHD treatments, the report noted.

Bryant has been suspended three times in the last four years for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. His latest suspension came as a result of him breaking the terms of a conditional reinstatement from April 2017.

He was a fourth-round pick in 2014 and spent three seasons with the Steelers before playing just eight games with the Raiders during the 2018-19 season.

Bryant tallied 19 receptions for 266 yards last year.

He is an unrestricted free agent this summer.
