There have been a few sources to confirm that Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is unhappy with his lack of involvement in the offense and that he has requested a trade. Bryant went on twitter and while he didn't deny the trade request, he said he was happy to be a Steeler:
Big win today and tomorrow right back to work tomorrow I am happy to be a steeler and can't wait to reach number 7 this year.— Martavis Bryant (@ThaBestUNO) October 16, 2017
If the Steelers do decide to trade him, here are three possible destinations for the third-year wideout:
- DALLAS COWBOYS- The Dallas Cowboys have a plethora of weapons on offense. One thing they do not have however is a true number two receiver and Bryant has the ability to take the top off the defense and open things up underneath. Terrance Williams has trouble catching the ball and is not very football smart. The Cowboys could use all the help they could get with a potential Ezekiel Elliott suspension looming.
- BUFFALO BILLS- Bills number one receiver Jordan Matthews is dealing with injuries and Zay Jones is still getting used to the speed of the NFL. The running game is struggling this season and with the Patriots defense as bad as they are right now, the big-play ability of Martavis Bryant is something that could really boost this Bills offense.
- WASHINGTON REDSKINS- The Redskins leading receiver is Chris Thompson, a running back. Terrelle Pryor hasn't worked out so far the way Washington was hoping this off-season when they let two 1,000 yard receivers leave via free agency. Bryant would provide the DeSean Jackson type receiver that they had last season and that will help alleviate pressure from not only Terrelle Pryor, but help open up holes in the run game as well.
The biggest thing for Bryant will be his ability to keep his nose clean. Bryant was suspended all last year for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He has all the talent in the world and can really push a team over the top.
The NFL trade deadline is at 4 p.m. on October 31st.
