Raiders coach Jon Gruden says Martavis Bryant has to get better

Martavis Bryant needs to step it up for the Raiders

Jon Gruden feels the Raiders recently acquired wide out Martavis Bryant needs to step up and master his craft with the team. Gruden feels Bryant is behind from missing time, but also feels the other wide outs are doing well to close the gap.

“He’s got to get out here and play better,” Gruden told reporters Saturday, via the Raiders’ official website. “He’s got to get out here. He’s in a competitive situation, and right now, a lot of the other receivers have had a nice camp.

“He’s just got to learn the offense. He’s got to stay out here. He’s had some illnesses. He’s got to get on the field. He’s got to master the offense and become more versatile, and that’s the key to making this team better.”

“I’m not saying he’s behind,” Gruden said. “I’m saying he’s got to be more versatile. I’m not going to say any more than that. He’s in a competitive situation. Nothing is going to be given to anybody. It doesn’t matter how you got here or what your history card says, we need everybody to understand the best players are going to play. He’s got to be more consistent, and I’m confident he will.”
