Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant knows that he’s in neutral right now but he’s trusting the process with the hopes that he can get things going into full gear.
“I know I’m not producing like I did two years ago,” Bryant said this week, via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. “But it’s gonna come. I’m not running from it. Just trying to get better and learn from it.”
Bryant’s off to a slow start this season. The receiver’s caught 15 passes for 204 yards to go with 1 touchdown entering Week 6. His 15 receptions are good enough for fourth on the team. Bryant’s chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger has been off this season, which is expected considering he was suspended all of last season. Granted, Roethlisberger is off to a subpar start himself.
Still, Bryant realizes better days are ahead. The receiver is just grateful that he has the opportunity to play and continue to improve on the football field.
“Everybody wants to be great. … I came a long way, one of the first three people to come back from being suspended [for a year],” Bryant said. “I’m just happy to be back in the process, getting better. I think we’re very close. It’s gonna happen, man. Just gotta be patient. I’m not slowing down for anything else.”
