Steelers trade Martavis Bryant to Raiders, get third-round pick in 2018 NFL Draft
Bryant might be one of the most talented wideout in the NFL
The Steelers had offers for talented wide receiver Martavis Bryant during free agency but never made a move. That changed on Thursday night, midway through the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, when they shipped Bryant to Oakland for a third-round pick (79th overall).
The Steelers, meanwhile, finally move on from Bryant, who was suspended for the entire 2016 season and was benched for a game in 2017 after he took to social media.
Bryant finished last season with 50 catches for 603 yards but set career lows in yards per reception (12.1) and touchdowns (3). The 26-year-old was originally a 2014 fourth-round pick who had had 8 touchdowns and averaged 21.1 yards per catch as a rookie. He's struggled with consistency for his entire career and he became expendable after JuJu Smith-Schuster's breakout rookie season in '18.
Now Bryant is headed to Oakland, where he'll be doing this to opponents and not the Raiders.
And for their troubles, the Steelers get a third-round pick.
