The Steelers have high hopes for fourth-round pick Martavis Bryant. The team got the rookie wide receiver under contract on Monday, a source told

Bryant’s four-year deal is expected to be in the $2.6 million range.

With a 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame, Bryant offers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a big target who can make plays in the red zone.

Depending on how quickly Bryant can adapt and learn offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s system, he could challenge second-year wide receiver Markus Wheaton for the starting split end position opposite Antonio Brown.

The Steelers inked first-round pick Ryan Shazier to a deal last week, but still need to sign former Notre Dame defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt and former Kent State running back Dri Archer.
