Martavis Bryant Wants Out Of Pittsburgh

It was nothing short of a hard road back to the football field for Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant due to off-the-field issues that saw him miss the vast majority of the last two seasons due to suspension.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Sunday that the receiver had recently put in a trade request and he was "unhappy" with his role in the offense. Bryant has already denied trade rumors that were swirling on Sunday night, saying that he's happy and focused on winning a super bowl in Pittsburgh, but regardless, his frustration would be at least partially justifiable with the Steelers failing to feed him more targets.

Bryant - who scored 15 touchdowns in his first 21 National Football League games before missing all of 2016 over multiple drug violations - said he hasn't told the organization that he is unhappy but has talked to coaches about getting better. Sunday's win against K.C. was his quietest game yet, hauling in just two balls on three targets for 27 yards. The team needs to focus on preparing for the Cincinnati Bengals and that includes Bryant.

"I'm good", he said of the situation on Monday.

Not soon after those reports surfaced, Bryant then took to Twitter and tried to downplay the entire thing.
