Pittsburgh Steelers defensive captain Cameron Heyward is never one to shy away from speaking his mind, and during a recent episode of his  Not Just Football podcast, he voiced his view that wideout Martavis Bryant needs to be reinstated by the NFL. 

As you may remember, Bryant was slapped with an indefinite suspension in 2017 for multiple failed drug tests thanks to his marijuana usage. Since then, he's played for two separate franchises in the Canadian Football League, as well as spending this most recent season with the Vegas Vipers of the XFL.

And Heyward wants his former teammate to be able to have the chance to come back to football's biggest League.

“You look at guys like Martavis Bryant, and you look at Josh Gordon, and you see that the rules of the NFL have changed,” Heyward said. “If those things had changed before, those guys wouldn’t be out of the league. Those guys can play in the NFL. They’ve proven that. Let’s see if they can continue to do it, and they work their way back up.”

“We see that society is changing its views, but views only change because key facts become more and more obvious to the people who make policy,” NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith said at the time.

Will Martavis Bryant get another chance in the NFL? Should he?
