Can’t say I’m up to date on what the current street prices for weed are right now. But I do know this – Steelers wideout Martavis Bryant might have just bought the most expensive sack of salad in history. Allegedly. Apparently. Probably. Definitely.
Because Bryant is facing a SEASON LONG suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. An entire season rolled, sparked, and up in smoke.
I thought you’d have to be an idiot to get busted for weed in the NFL. I thought all the players know when the test is coming. Nobody should know better than Bryant… he’s failed one before. Guy sat out four games for the ganj last year. That’s a massive suspension, an ugly ding for a really nice player, and an all-time wake up call. Except it wasn’t.
For Bryant his wakeup call is wake-and-bake. His rep says that Bryant is depressed. Yeah, I would be too if I just blew an entire season of my career because I can’t say nope to dope.
This is the guy that Ben Roethlisberger called out before the playoffs, and told the media he needs to “toughen up.” And I think Bryant thought he said “toke up” Huge difference.
Roethlisberger also told him that this offseason he needs to become the best in the world. At what? Passing the dutchie? Good news then. Because he’s apparently the Jerry Rice of spliffing cabbage.
Good news for Ben – is that he already has the best receiver in the world. His name is Antonio Brown, and with Bryant out -he’s probably going to have 700 receptions next year.
The bad news is that his deep threat continues to choose packing bowls over chasing Super Bowls.
Steelers’ offseason so far- they landed Ladarius Green. And they lost a guy who’s OBSESSED with the green. Bump some Cypress Hill for the Steel City.
