Martavis Bryant Facing a Year-Long Suspension after Another Substance Abuse Violation - Sports Gossip
Get the man some help

Free agent receiver Martavis Bryant could be facing a year-long suspension from the NFL.  Adam Schefter reported on Sunday morning that the 26-year-old violated the NFL's substance abuse policy at some point during the off-season.

Schefter added that the possibility of a suspension played a role in the Raiders decision to cut him and his third suspension in four years could be the end of his career.

Via ESPN:

Former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Martavis Bryant is facing a year-long suspension for his latest violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy, a source told ESPN.

With this potentially being Bryant's third suspension in four years, it could mark the end of his NFL career. It would be a challenge for Bryant to return from another suspension, though he will be entitled to counseling from the NFL Players Association.

ESPN reported earlier this month that Bryant violated the league's drug policy at some point during the offseason.

That's a tough way to lose out on your dreams.  Hopefully this is a wake up call to Bryant and he gets the help he needs.  He obviously has some issues he needs to work through.
