Report: Steelers' Bryant requests to be traded

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has requested to be traded, according to sources.

NFL reporter Ian Rapaport tweeted that Bryant “recently” asked for a trade, and that his teammates and coaches are aware that he is unhappy.


Bryant was suspended for all of last season after violating league policy.

So far this season, Bryant has 15 receptions for 204 yards and one touchdown. He caught two passes on three targets Sunday against Kansas City.

When asked about the rumor Monday, Bryant said he did not request the trade and he was "moving on from it" and getting ready for Cincinnati.

The Steelers have not yet commented on this request.
