The reason being of this trade request is of normal and that is players not feeling happy with their current role with their team. Martavis Bryant has a case, Bryant is playing in his first full season since sitting out last season due to a league drug violation and returns this season to battle with Juju Smith-Schuster for receptions and so far Smith-Schuster is winning. This season, Bryant has 15 receptions for 204 receiving yards and 1 touchdown.
With the NFL Trade Deadline coming in Week 8, the Steelers should get some phone calls on Bryant. We would expect teams like the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns to have potential interest in acquiring the 25-year old.
