Player Notes
Apr 26 11:13pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant can be a 'dynamic receiver' for quarterback Derek Carr, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie, and McKenzie said Oakland had been working on trading for Bryant for some time.

Apr 26 10:43pm ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers traded WR Martavis Bryant to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for the 79th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Apr 26 10:30pm ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers traded wide receiver Martavis Bryant to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a third round pick. Bryant had fallen out of favor in Pittsburgh in 2017 and rumors were flying that he was being shopped around. Bryant had flashed early in his career, but was suspended for all of 2016 for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He was largely disappointing in his return in 2017 and was overshadowed by rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. Bryant is a dangerous deep-threat who will be an interesting fit in Oakland. Bryant will benefit from Derek Carr's big arm if he can get onto the field. This move is likely bad news for speedy slot receiver Seth Roberts. It also is a sign that Oakland may be considering moving wide receiver Amari Cooper or newly acquired receiver Jordy Nelson into the slot. Both of those receivers have excelled when playing out of the slot in the past.

Apr 26 10:23pm ET

The Oakland Raiders acquired WR Martavis Bryant from the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for the 75th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Apr 26 2:10pm ET

A story on on Thursday listed Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant as a player who could get traded by the end of the 2018 NFL draft. Bryant, of course, made news during the season when he used social media to voice his displeasure over how the team was utilizing him on offense. He was subsequently punished by the team and not much has been heard about the situation since. Bryant has one year remaining on his contract but he is still buried behind Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster on the depth chart. He has made it known that he would like to be a No. 1 option somewhere and there are several teams out there who could use the help at the receiver position.

Apr 26 1:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has quietly remained in trade discussions over the last couple of months. However, most of the teams needing receivers are rivals to the team.

Feb 28 12:43pm ET

Updating an ongoing story, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is not the subject of trade plans, according to Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert. He added teams have called about Bryant, but Colbert said Wednesday, Feb. 28, the wide receiver is not on the trading market.

Feb 28 12:10pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant was said to be on the way out of Pittsburgh, but Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says he has no interest in trading Bryant. Colbert says other teams have called on Bryant, but the Steelers are not looking to trade him. Bryant is cheap at $705,000 for 2018, but is entering the final year of his rookie deal and looks destined to leave the team at this time next year. Bryant wants to be a No. 1 receiver, and that is not going to happen in Pittsburgh. The team values his playmaking ability as a big-play threat outside.

Feb 24 6:00pm ET

The Buffalo Bills, who were trying to trade for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant at the October deadline, could get involved again this offseason. The Steelers were listing on Bryant at the deadline last year but felt a fourth-round pick wasn't fair compensation. A late second-rounder or low third-rounder could get something done. Bryant became the third wideout in Pittsburgh last year due to the emergence of rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster, and he wasn't happy about the role. If he remains in Pittsburgh, Bryant will be more of a WR5 with touchdown upside in deeper leagues.

Feb 24 3:13pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant has not had any contract extension talks with the Steelers. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason.

Feb 24 3:13pm ET

The Buffalo Bills had interest in acquiring Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant during the regular season.

Feb 24 7:20am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has fallen out of favor in Pittsburgh, but Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the Steelers "have not made any attempts to move" Bryant. La Canfora added that the Steelers "aren't calling teams or soliciting calls" on Bryant. This conflicts with an earlier report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who said Pittsburgh was "listening to potential deals." Bryant ruffled feathers by complaining about his role last season but is only due $705,000 in 2018. If the Steelers stand pat, Bryant will return as the No. 3 wideout behind Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Feb 23 1:03pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is reportedly on the trading block as the team is listening to potential deals for him, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Feb 23 10:20am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has had an up and down tenure in Pittsburgh and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Steelers are "listening to potential deals" for Bryant. Rapoport made it a point to say the Steelers are not necessarily shopping Bryant, but it sounds like they are all ears to offers. Bryant made a big stink midway through last season when he felt he was not playing enough, and the Steelers then made him a healthy scratch for Week 8. Bryant quit the social media complaining, but was a disappointment with a 52-681-4 line. JuJu Smith-Schuster has emerged as the Steelers' No. 2 wideout. Bryant has one year left on his deal.

Feb 23 8:43am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant isn't being shopped by the team, but they are fielding offers on him.

Jan 15 4:00pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant caused a stir during the regular season when he went to social media to complain about his role on the team and later requested a trade from the team. The young receiver has changed his tune after his team's Divisional Round loss to the Jaguars on Sunday, telling reporters he wants to be back with the team next year and will be ready for organized team activities, stating his desire to win a Super Bowl with the team. It was unlikely that the team would have traded Bryant this offseason anyway after they responded to his previous tirade and trade demand by suspending him for one game. Look for Bryant to resume his role as the team's No. 3 wide receiver in 2018.

Jan 15 2:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant said he wants to return to the Steelers next season and will be ready for offseason workouts.

Jan 14 9:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant caught only two passes in his playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but he certainly made them count. The young wideout caught 2-of-4 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown as his team lost 45-42 in a shootout with the Jaguars. Bryant's score came on a 36-yard over-the-shoulder strike from Ben Roethlisberger at the end of the first half. While he only made one other catch in the game, Bryant ends his 2017 season on a positive note after losing his spot as the team's No. 2 wide receiver to rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster. Bryant has always been a boom/bust player but he busted far more often than he boomed in 2017. He will look to carve out a bigger role in his team's offense in 2018.

Jan 14 4:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant caught two passes for 78 yards and one touchdown in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14.

Dec 31 9:20pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant caught 6-of-7 targets for 65 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 17. Bryant saw an uptick in usage over the past few weeks while Antonio Brown has been sidelined by a calf injury, which has helped to offset what was a mostly disappointing season. Bryant, who lost his starting role to rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster during the year, finishes the 2017 campaign with 50 catches for 603 yards and three touchdowns. Assuming Brown is ready to play in two weeks in the divisional round of the playoffs, Bryant will go back to being the No. 3 option in the passing attack.
