Martavis is the most talented WR in the NFL since Randy Moss. Legit HOF talent.
Wha? He has proven jack shit. He has the potential
to be great, but is far from that right now. Not even close to Randy Moss and his HOF status is not fait accompli by any stretch.
The one thing about Bryant coming back from suspension and realizing his potential is that it is really, really so against the odds. I mean the odds are so ridiculous that the Steelers should spend a high pick on a WR in this draft.
I have looked over the list of suspended players the past 10 years and it is grim. Show me a player who was suspended for 10 games, suspended for an entire season and then had a come to Jesus moment, cleaned up his act and then emerged as a great player. All I see are players that continue the downward spiral, continue to get suspended, get suspended indefinitely, move from team to team, and never live up to their potential.
My outlook on Bryant is that I don't expect anything from him and if he does get reinstated, if he does play well, then great, but it does not stop me from taking a WR high in this year's draft, first or second round.
This. Although unlike everybody else, I haven't given up entirely on Coates being a valuable contributor.
