The Pittsburgh Steelers are not lacking drama this year. In addition to the recent holdout by Le’Veon Bell and a rare sideline eruption by Antonio Brown, receiver Martavis Bryant has reportedly requested a trade.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media has the scoop on this and reports the team is “well aware that he’s unhappy.”
In his first year back from a suspension, Martavis Bryant was integrated slowly into the offense. 2 catches today. Ready for a new start.

Through six games, Bryant hasn’t been the explosive playmaker many thought he’d be for Pittsburgh. He’s hauled in just 17 passes for 231 yards and one touchdown.
It’s somewhat ironic that Bryant is now so unhappy with Pittsburgh, the team that has stuck with him through multiple drug-related suspensions. He just recently became reinstated by the NFL after spending the entire 2016 season suspended.
