Midway through the 2017 season, Martavis Bryant told anyone who would listen he wanted out of Pittsburgh. He stated he was fed up with the Steelers, and his lack of involvement with the team.
His actions eventually led to his one-game suspension by the team and, after the bye week, Bryant seemed to toe the company line and started to produce again. In other words, he started to show flashes of “the Alien” everyone expected to see this past season after he missed the 2016 season due to an NFL suspension.
Lately, his play certainly has the rumor mill swirling regarding teams interested in Bryant’s skill-set next season via trade.
Interesting NFL Rumor: Steelers and Dolphins have discussed Martavis Bryant trade.. Some interest in DeVante Parker from Steelers side— IB (@incarceratedbob) February 21, 2018
Just talks nothing close to done.
Jets/Redskins/Colts also have varying degrees of interest in Bryant
These are just rumors, but the team most involved, per the report, is the Miami Dolphins. Miami is supposedly interested in a one-to-one trade for DeVante Parker. However, the New York Jets, Washington Redskins and Indianapolis Colts have also supposedly put feelers out regarding Bryant’s services next season.
This might not amount to anything, but there are likely some receiver-depleted teams that would love to have Bryant play for them and become the featured receiver on their roster.
