The Toronto Argonauts recently placed former Steelers WR Martavis Bryant on the suspended list after he failed to report in time for the start of training camp.
Argonauts HC Ryan Dinwiddie admitted that he’s growing “impatient” with Bryant.
“We’ve had some contact with him. I’m getting a little impatient with the thing. We need to get him up here now if he’s going to make an impact on our team,” Dinwiddie said, via 3DownNation.com.
“The ball is in his court, he needs to get his passport and get those things squared away. We’ll see how that’s going to play out.”
Bryant, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2014. After three years in Pittsburgh, he was traded to the Raiders before the 2018 season.
The Raiders released Bryant coming out of the preseason only to re-sign him a few weeks later. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.7 million rookie contract and became an unrestricted free agent in 2019.
Bryant has been suspended multiple times for substance abuse violations. He signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League this past January.
Bryant also joined the Massachusetts Pirates of the Indoor Football League in April.
For his NFL career, Bryant appeared in 44 games for the Steelers and Raiders, catching 145 passes for 2,183 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns. He also rushed for 94 yards and a touchdown over the course of four seasons.
