Yesterday after the Pittsburgh Steelers handed the Kansas City Chiefs their first loss of the season; it should’ve been all celebrations for the Steeler players after coming off their most comprehensive victory of the season. But, one of their top wide receivers broke the celebrations when the new broke that he wants out.
Martavis Bryant recently requested a trade from the Steelers who are in first place in the AFC North.
The talented wide-out who recently returned to the league only a month and a half ago after violating the league’s subsistence abuse policy, which caused him to miss the entire 2016 NFL season is off to a frustrating start in 2017. Bryant has 15 receptions on 31 targets for 204 yards. Bryant has a reason to be frustrated as JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Eli Rogers have been taking snaps away from Bryant.
Bryant would be a huge addition to a team that is knocking on the playoff door step and is also hurting at the receiver position.
The Buffalo Bills should look no further, with Jordan Matthews slowly recovering from his thumb injury and rookie Zay Jones underperforming, Bryant could be the answer the Bills have been looking for ever since they shipped off Sammy Watkins to Los Angeles. In his first two years in the league, Bryant had 76 receptions on 140 targets and finished with 1,314 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.
Since the possibility of left tackle Cordy Glenn being traded it would only make sense for the Bills to roll the dice. Buffalo does have promising rookie Dion Dawkins, who seems to be improving week in and week out. Bryant could give the Bills a huge lift in the position and new life to the team.
What are your thoughts? Should the Bills roll the dice and trade for Martavis Bryant? Let me know in the comments below!
