Multiple contending teams have reportedly inquired about Pittsburgh Steelers disgruntled wide receiver Martavis Bryant, including the New England Patriots, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Bryant, who has been unhappy with his role in Pittsburgh's offense, requested a trade last week. But the Steelers have not agreed to trade him to this point and reportedly "won't let a player force his way out," per Rapoport.

It's the latest twist in what has become a major saga in Pittsburgh over the past week.

Last Sunday, Bryant wrote and then deleted a comment on Instagram saying rookie Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster wasn't better than him. He then missed Monday's practice after reportedly meeting with a doctor.
