Enter Edmunds, who has the size (6-foot-1, 217 pounds) and the speed (4.47 40-yard dash) to become a valuable contributor in a defensive backfield that includes Joe Haden, Artie Burns and Sean Davis.
"I just feel it's wherever you put me, I'll make a play for you", he said.
Though, the issue here is that he's been unable to stay on the field.
Head coach Jon Gruden had said the team was not done looking for wide receivers, and they got a good one in Bryant. Based on where the Steelers were picking in the round, and based on where the drafting process was at the time the trade was announced, it was a reasonable assumption because a fair cost for such a move would have been a third-round pick.
Last season, Bryant caught 50 passes for 603 yards but reportedly expressed frustration over his role in Pittsburgh and asked to be traded. Pittsburgh never hesitated to pull the trigger on JuJu Smith-Schuster previous year in the second even though they appeared to have plenty of wide receivers. The Clemson product was suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and then for the entire 2016 season after a repeat offense.
Bryant wanted out of Pittsburgh and believed there was a chance he'd get dealt sometime this offseason. "We wish Martavis nothing but the best and we're happy to have an extra pick tomorrow".
