Steelers sign WR Bryant to 4-year deal
June 9, 2014
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers and fourth-round draft pick Martavis Bryant have agreed to terms on a four-year contract.
Financial details were not disclosed. The Steelers selected the 6-foot-4 wide receiver out of Clemson with the 118th overall pick in the draft. Bryant caught 61 passes for 1,354 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Tigers. His career average of 22.2 yards per reception is a Football Bowl Subdivision record.
The Steelers expect Bryant to compete with second-year wideout Markus Wheaton and veteran Lance Moore for playing time alongside Pro Bowler Antonio Brown.
Pittsburgh has signed seven of its nine draft picks. Second-round pick Stephon Tuitt and third-round choice Dri Archer have yet to agree to terms.
