Steelers Listening To Martavis Bryant Offers

The Steelers may not be actively shopping Martavis Bryant, but they’re listening to offers on the contract-year wide receiver, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

Bryant did not appear to be content with his situation last season, and trade buzz followed the deep threat for weeks leading up to the 2017 deadline. But Pittsburgh kept him in the fold, and as of February, the franchise wasn’t planning on trading him despite fielding calls on him.

Part of the holdup regarding a Bryant trade is the Steelers’ timeline and the teams that might impede them from reaching their goal. The Patriots and Ravens are teams that could need a receiver like Bryant, but Graziano notes the Steelers do not want to ship a talented player to rival franchises. They believe Bryant can help them in 2018, even if he may now be the fourth option in their offense, and will need a good offer to part with him.

Kevin Colbert discussed Bryant with other teams at the Combine, but nothing emerged from those reported discussions. So as of now, the two-time defending AFC North champions are set at wide receiver as they attempt to make good on their Super Bowl window — one largely dependent on the skill-position crew they’ve assembled. But with Pittsburgh needing more help on the defensive side of the ball, it would be understandable if the team listened on Bryant if it meant draft compensation to address bigger issues.

    Do not trade him. He’s tall and can run. He’ll get his act together and be a star along side Antonio

          It is business, because they don’t want to face the Pats with Bryant in the playoffs.

    He’s a cancer input long as brown is the number one. Bryant wants to be a number one. Sadly pitt has only hurt themselves in this situation leaving him unhappy refusing to originally trade him now only willing to trade him to a non rival. As a pats fan I’d love him in ne. But if not I love him only hurting yo pitt clubhouse. They have to many Alfa males on that roster bell, brown, Bryant. Maybe that’s why pitt can’t win as they don’t follow ne in building rosters and valuing more then just talent.

        “Who has more SB victories[?]”

        Since the 1970’s, New England, more’s the pity.

    I doubt anyone will give them much, he’s physically gifted but has never produced to his potential and is a bit of a headcase.

    He is one strike away from I believe a year long suspension and hasn’t shown the maturity to make a good team give anything of value up for him. His professional value may be a noin, but his personal responsibility is at about a 2. (Howard fans will get it)

    Trade him to Browns for their number 4 pick. They can’t use him without a great QB, which they might not get at number 1. It’s like giving Cleveland a bullet…but no gun.
