The Raiders may not be giving up on Martavis Bryant so quickly after all.
The wide receiver is reportedly nearing a one-year deal to return to the Silver and Black, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
The #Raiders and Martavis Bryant are closing in on a 1-year deal -- and barring any hiccup, he's expected to play this week, per team source. Not officially signed yet, but they called him this morning and it's expected to get done today. Quite the twist.

The news comes two days after ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Bryant was facing a possible one-year suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. On Sept. 1, the Raiders released Bryant, just over four months after Oakland acquired him in a draft-day trade.
