Former Clemson receiver Martavis Bryant signed his four-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday afternoon.
The terms weren’t disclosed, but OvertheCap.com projects a nearly $2.7 million contract with a $439,220 signing bonus for the T.L. Hanna product.
Bryant is the last of Clemson’s five draftees – and the seventh of Pittsburgh’s nine draft picks to sign.
Steelers wide receivers coach Richard Mann has said he’s in the mix to start right away.
"I'm not going to say that he is going to start but potentially he could," said Mann to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "We feel like we got a guy to put opposite of Antonio Brown."
More recently in OTAs, Bryant had a teachable moment, drawing the ire of Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin in a drill. Tomlin called for him to watch Brown more closely.
"What you need to do is watch 84 and do what 84 does,” Tomlin said. “You would never see 84 doing that.”
Bryant led the nation with a 30.5 yards per catch average in 2012 (305 yards total) and built on that en route to a breakout 2013 campaign. Before his top-four round selection mid-May, he more than doubled his ’12 receiving total (828) as a junior with a career-high 42 catches and seven touchdowns.
