The Pittsburgh Steelers said that they wanted to get wide receiver Martavis Bryant move involved in the offense. Based on Week 7’s results, the Steelers failed in their attempt.
Even though the Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 29-14 on Sunday, Bryant was almost obsolete.
The 6-foot-4 wideout had 1 catch for 3 yards versus the Bengals. Pittsburgh even dialed up a reverse attempt to Bryant in what felt like a play to try to appease him.
Rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster’s steadily increasing role in the offense doesn’t help matters.
It’s fair to assume that Bryant’s frustrations still linger following Sunday’s win. Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb believes Bryant needs to have another sit down with Mike Tomlin as opposed to voicing his concerns to the masses.
“If you have problems go upstairs and talk about it. Don’t go through the media, don’t try to leak things through your agent or your marketing guys,” McNabb said on ESPN. “If you have a problem just talk about it.”
McNabb certainly know about unhappy receivers doing his time in the NFL.
Bryant should be in Tomlin’s ear about his reduced role. If he does indeed want out of Pittsburgh take that information to the coaches in a private conversation.
