Pittsburgh (93.7 The Fan) - Six months after saying he wanted to be traded, receiver Martavis Bryant got his wish midway through the first round of the NFL draft.  The Pittsburgh Steelers traded Bryant to the Oakland Raiders for a third-round draft choice (79th overall).

Bryant, 26,  is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and it was highly unlikely he would re-sign with the Steelers.  He missed the 2016 season because of a drug suspension.  Bryant played in 36 games in 3 seasons, catching 126 passes.  Last season, he had 50 receptions for 603 yards and 3 touchdowns.
