If he failed before the trade, then the trade is almost certainly null-n-void.

Guessing it's a missed test. Slap on the wrist. This entire caper is crap.


We've already used the draft pick we got for him.

How are they going to reverse that?

No- regardless of the timing, the Steelers don't get dinged by this unless it comes out they knew of the violation before they made the trade.

Also...they will go hard on Bryant, not easy.

Raiders knew what they were getting.
I’m pretty sure all trades are league approved before they are completed.
Steelers have no problems here...

Habitual, repeat offender. This won’t be a “wrist slap”. Guy might be done.

If Bryant missed or failed another drug test, it’s a sad situation because he was looking good in Raiders OTAs and would be a productive player for them.

The fact that all Bryant ever did was smoke weed is indicative that pro sports is behind public opinion in its punishments for weed. But Bryant knows the rules. Lastly these reports of a failed test are not confirmed yet.

For what it's worth:

There is some issue with Martavis Bryant, but it’s not clear if it’ll cause a delay (like last year before camp), a quick fix via paperwork or a suspension. All was well when Bryant met at the NFL Offices in late April.

That "all was well" comment pretty much confirms that the Steelers have nothing to worry about.

To me it's not sad. It's funny. The guy isn't hooked on opioids. Not to mention him spouting off against teammates on twitter. This couldn't have happened to a better guy.

That was kind of my point. I don't think the trade could have happened if he had already failed, nor can I really see how PIT would have knowledge of a pending failure. If that were the case, PIT would just forfeit it's 2019 R3 pick - Roger makes all this shit up as he goes along.

Also, I was thinking about Bell and figuring there might be some justifiable reasons for a missed test seeing as how he's just switched teams and moved. If it's just a missed test, he'll probably get a few games but he's not getting the book thrown at him.

I wished we kept him..now it appears wise we moved him.. what an idiot..
I think he may have had a chance in Pittsburgh; but not in the wild wild west were the weed flows legally everywhere..like putting a drunk in charge of the beer kegs at hooters..
