Well, my greatest fear is that we don't draft a WR high, then the Commish takes his sweet old time and reinstates Bryant right before the season starts, in which time he has not been able to go through training camp or play in any preseason games.

Think about that for a second, what if the Commish takes too long to reinstate Bryant and he isn't able to shake the rust off with a proper training camp and preseason?
As Colbert said, they are not allowed to have any contact with him, he is not able to practice with the team, etc. Does anybody really think that Bryant will just magically step on the field and be the same player? And will he be able to go long before getting injured in that scenario?

This is why I have been preaching taking a WR high, first or second round. If Davis is there at the end of round 1 you take him, or if Godwin or Zay Jones or JuJu is there at the end of round 2, you take one of them. Just too much of a gamble to place a bet on Bryant being reinstated in a timely fashion, that Coates mangled hand will be fine, or that Green will get over his concussions. We need another playmaker, another stud to round out the trio of Bell and Brown and (fill in the blank). WR or TE needs to happen in round 1 or 2. Crucial for 2017 and beyond. A First round WR or TE and that 5th year option means that player would complete the new 'Triplets' and they would play together for 4-5 years. That is huge.

I agree with the bolded, if for no other reason than insurance...

Also, for Bryant's sake as well as the Steelers', this needs to be a question of "how bad do you want it, Martavis?!"
If this scenario goes down like many of us fear and drags through the offseason, he will need to make up on his own what he misses in team workouts.

He needs to man up and prove to himself above all that he can do it...
...perhaps as the only means of slaying the demons that have held him down.

I think it's the only way we get the absolute best Martavis Bryant on the field, and frankly I'm not sure I want him otherwise...

Ok, so, never mind all this... :mrgreen:

Still, I'm rooting for Martavis to meet and exceed EVERY condition of his conditional reinstatement...

...as for the draft, I'll take BPA in R1 for the win, please! 8-)

That leaves the Coates-Hunter battle. And, yes, it's a battle. Coates is on notice after a shaky sophomore year. Despite playing through injuries, Coates must prove he can mentally fight through issues and produce on the field. Hunter, a former second-round pick because of his 6-4 frame matched with 4.4 40 speed, has underachieved as a pro. He also hasn't played with an established quarterback. He has one now.

With Bryant 'back' this is how I see it as well. This can only result in SBI. The cream rises to the top.

I'll say it again.

I do not expect Bryant to stay clean and make it they the season. I doubt he lasts 1/2 the season.

I did forget about Hunter. Hopefully he spent the offseason on the jugs machine.

I'd like to see more steelers put the douchebag Bryant in his place.

Too bad the only other vet at WR with the cache to scold Bryant is possibly as big a douche. Don't see AB ever making THAT kind of joke, however.

Was it ever verified whether this was a joke between MB and Coates?

He doesn't fuck up in the regular season. He fucks up in the offseason.

So if he can't stay clean, he'll be busted again before the season starts.

Who gives a fuck? Douchbag move either way. Jokes like that in public can be mis-interpreted. And it has, and makes him look like. . .well. . . a douchebag.

He's coming off a suspension where he let the team, coaches, staff, and fans down because he liked sizzurp, or whatever the fuck it is. All it does is breed antagonism, not competition, imo. Tomlin had to step in like fucking daddy and re-spin, coates laughed it off, and now dupree has to show him how to be a respectful teammate? Especially now that "character and smarts" are issues with this team? This guy has neither character nor smarts.

The dumbass has yet to pick a treatment center in Pittsburgh, a counselor, etc and hasn't been cleared yet to rejoin the team.

There are conflicting reports on this but damn, how stupid is this kid? He can't find the time to do what he needs to rejoin the team but he can take time and make jokes about JuJu and Coates?

All I know is that come playoff time many of you that don't like JuJu are going to love him because I just have no confidence that Bryant is going to be around. Players in his position usually keep spiraling down until they are suspended for life. Is there not one single sane individual in his camp that can offer him guidance and good advice? Because everything he has done in the past month just screams that he has nobody, that he is just all too cavalier about his life right now and how his future hangs in the balance. It is sad.
