The Massachusetts Pirates of the Indoor Football League announced that they’ve signed former NFL WR Martavis Bryant to a contract.
“I’m excited to get into pads again and grateful to the Mass. Pirates for giving me this opportunity, and allowing me to come in and represent their organization in preparation of the CFL season. I look forward to contributing any way I can. Big things are in store for the Pirates this year! I know a few of the players on the roster and am looking forward to stepping on the field with them,” Bryant said in a statement.
The former fourth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2014 was traded to the Raiders before the 2018 season after spending three years with the team.
His career began to derail after he was suspended multiple times for substance abuse violations.
The 29-year-old appeared in 44 games for the Steelers and Raiders, catching 145 passes for 2,183 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns.
