The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a huge win over the Kansas City Chiefs, although the AFC North franchise continues to deal with some internal controversy. However, it appears as though the team is attempting to put a stop to such controversy by giving wide receiver Martavis Bryant a larger workload in Week 7 against the rival Cincinnati Bengals. According to a Sunday morning report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Bryant won’t be “subbing out” against the Bengals. Rapoport first reported Bryant’s trade request last Sunday. The wide receiver reportedly wasn’t happy with his role on the team, and both teammates and coaches were supposedly aware of this unhappiness. These recent trade rumors have since been shot down by both Bryant and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and even team president Art Rooney II became the latest figure in Pittsburgh to chime in on the situation.
