New Steelers WR Martavis Bryant To Wear No. 10 For Now
According to new Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant, he’ll be wearing No. 10 for the time being.
Blessed to be wearing number 10❗️

Bryant, who was drafted Saturday in the fourth-round by the Steelers out of Clemson, said during his conference call with the media following his selection that he believes he’ll fit in nicely in Pittsburgh.
“It’s a great fit. It’s a city I really wanted to come to,” said Bryant. “I told my mom the whole time I wanted to be a Pittsburgh Steeler and I’m glad that they have faith in me and I won’t let them down.”
Bryant, who caught 42 passes for 828 yards and seven touchdowns last season, also believes his size will come in handy inside the red zone.
“I bring a big threat in the red zone,” he said. “I’ll do anything they ask me to.”
We’ll see if Bryant sticks with No. 10 all through the offseason. Just in case he doesn’t, I would suggest waiting on buying his jersey until the start of the regular season.
