The Pittsburgh Steelers are about to get a whole lot more dangerous, as receiver Martavis Bryant rejoined the team's practice Monday after serving his four-game suspension for substance abuse.
The 23-year-old receiver set the league on fire last year, after being benched for the first six weeks of the season he was activated in a week seven matchup with the Texans, he recorded his first career catch that week which resulted in a 35-yard touchdown.
Since then, things only got better as the receiver piled up six touchdowns in a four-game span, having eight touchdowns overall in his rookie season, as well as 549-yards receiving.

Bryant's speed matched with his 6'4 height make him a nightmare for defensive backs, as he can take the top off a defense on any given play, as well as contesting for high balls.
This addition gives the Steelers, who are currently without the services of franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, a huge addition to their offense as well as another deep threat option for the strong-armed Mike Vick.
Vick is Crucial
Of course, Bryant's impact on the field will be based purely on how Vick plays.
A gameplan similar in fashion to last Thursdays game plan will likely mean fewer yards than usual, but hopefully with more practice time for Vick, the Steelers can associate some more deep passes to utilize Vick's strong arm and Martavis Bryant's speed.
This Sunday the Pittsburgh Steelers face off against a San Diego Chargers team that has been disappointing to say the least so far this season. A win versus this team will help keep the Steelers afloat in a competitive AFC North during Roethlisberger's absence.
