In acquiring Martavis Bryant in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers in April Braden Smith Jersey , Oakland General Manager Reggie McKenzie said the Raiders felt “good about giving Martavis an opportunity.”
It appears as though that good feeling may have left the building.
According to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Raiders are wary that a new suspension for the talented Jamison Crowder Jersey , but troubled, receiver may be imminent.
The team declined to comment on the matter to Gehlken but affirmed they are awaiting word from the NFL about a potential violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy.
Bryant was suspended for the entirety of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of the substance-abuse policy. He was conditionally reinstated last year and played in 15 games for Pittsburgh with eight starts. He caught 50 passes for 603 yards and three touchdowns before being traded to the Raiders in exchange for a third-round pick.
A failed test isn’t the only way Bryant could run afoul of the league policy. Missed tests could trigger another suspension as well.
The New York Giants have spent a 2019 third-round draft pick on Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal Denzelle Good Jersey , and Washington has selected Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander in the sixth round Wednesday.
New York will surrender its third-round pick in next April's draft in Nashville, while the Redskins give up a sixth-rounder.
Both players were ruled academically ineligible for the upcoming college football season and entered the supplemental draft.
Not selected were Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant Morgan Moses Jersey , Grand Valley State running back Martayveus Carter and Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu.
Beal's strength is in man coverage, featuring agility and good hands; some scouts projected him as a higher prospect than a third-rounder in the next draft. The Giants need depth in their secondary.
Alexander has good size at 6-foot-3 Geron Christian Jersey , 196 pounds and is physical. He does his best work against passes in front of him and isn't shy about defending the run.
