Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has reportedly demanded a trade

Does Martavis Bryant want out of Pittsburgh?

The NFL Network reported on Sunday that the Steelers’ No. 2 wide receiver had demanded a trade, as he’s frustrated with his role in the offense. ESPN then added that the request had been made weeks ago.

Bryant, 25, is third on the team in targets and fourth in receptions, and might be losing his No. 2 role to rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster.

After Pittsburgh’s win over Kansas City on Sunday night, though, Bryant seemed to deny the report.

Bryant’s girlfriend, however, seemed to confirm the reports, suggesting why her boyfriend would want out of Pittsburgh.

“You guys should’ve seen it coming,” she wrote in a since deleted Tweet. “Taking him off the field, not giving the ball or the chance to reach his full potential.”

The former fourth-round pick out of Clemson has 93 career catches for 1,545 yards and 15 touchdowns. He has 17 catches for 231 yards and 1 touchdown so far this season.
