Martavis Bryant reportedly wants out of Pittsburgh again, rips JuJu Smith-Schuster

The Steelers performed one of the more creative touchdown celebrations in recent memory

Bryant's comments were met with skepticism; the tweet could've been forced by the organization or his agent to prevent a media circus.

Responding to a comment he was tagged in which said rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster is a better player, Bryant wrote, "JuJu is no where near better than me fool".

According to a report by ESPN, the talented receiver would like to be traded and he would like that to happen sooner rather than later.

Roethlisberger targeted Smith-Schuster three times in Sunday's win and twice to Bryant. who had one catch for 3 yards. Presumably, nothing. The Steelers, who stuck with him through the suspension, have said they don't want to trade him.

In his clarification, Bryant expressed frustration about his own lack of targets while complimenting Smith-Schuster. Is that Bryant saying he wants to be traded or just wants to be used in the offense more?

Well, on Sunday night, it became pretty clear that Bryant is indeed unhappy about things in Pittsburgh. "Maybe some of us had higher expectations how quickly he could get back up to full speed, but he's making progress".

Bryant later deleted his comment and replaced it with a longer comment, which both praised Smith-Schuster and also claimed he was given "no help and little support", presumably by the Steelers.

Bryant, 25, missed the entire 2016 season due to a suspension by the National Football League for multiple drug violations under the substance-abuse policy. "In due time the process will show".

Bryant has hauled in 18-of-36 targets this year for 234 yards and 1 touchdown.
