The Pittsburgh Steelers have had a whirlwind of a week when it comes to wide receiver Martavis Bryant. After swirling rumors that he had requested a trade, then Bryant himself stating that he did not request a trade, both sides are now looking to move past the drama.
According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the Steelers are planning on giving Bryant a full workload. They also will not be subbing him out with a few other wide receivers as they’ve done over the past few weeks.

This is a big deal and goes to show that the Steelers are doing their best to make their young wide receiver happy. On the flip side, Bryant also adds a deep threat against the rival Cincinnati Bengals, which should help open up the field even more for star wideout Antonio Brown and elite running back Le’Veon Bell if utilized well.
On the season, though, Bryant has struggled to get anything going. He has 231 receiving yards and just one touchdown. His longest reception of the season is 51 yards, which came during a three-catch, 91-yard performance against the Minnesota Vikings. Aside from that, he’s tallied no more than 48 yards in any single game this year.
It’ll be worth watching how the Steelers opt to deploy Bryant in this crucial Week 7 matchup against the Bengals.
