The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to call Martavis Bryant's bluff. The receiver told ESPN's Josina Anderson he wanted out of Pittsburgh if the team isn't going to use him. Coach Mike Tomlin, however, reiterated the team has no plans to trade Bryant. "We've invested a lot in Martavis since we drafted him. He's not available via trade. We've invested a lot," Tomlin said. Bryant has been frustrated with his lack of production since returning from a season-long suspension last year. The 25-year-old has 18 catches for 234 yards on 36 targets this season. He has seen his playing time reduced each of the past two weeks. Bryant played just 34 snaps in Sunday's win and tallied a combined three catches for 30 yards in Weeks 6 and 7. The lack of production led Bryant to lash out on social media against rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (in a post that has since been deleted) and request a trade if his usage doesn't increase. Tomlin said he would talk to the receiver about the social media posts. Bryant was not at meetings on Monday.
