Bryant, who turns 27 next Thursday, reportedly violated the NFL's substance abuse policy during the offseason.

The Raiders acquired Bryant from the Steelers in April for a third-round pick. He finished the season on the injured reserve list due to a PCL injury.

The Clemson product was suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season and the entire 2016 season because of positive drug tests while he was with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has tallied 19 catches for 266 yards with no touchdowns in eight games this season.
