Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster wants his bike back

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is not happy with his role in the team's offense and reportedly "wants out". He is now fourth on the team with 18 receptions and is slowly watching rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster's role increase.

"JuJu is no where near better than me, fool", Bryant wrote.

Smith-Schuster brushed off the criticism on Monday, but Tomlin chastised Bryant for publicly airing issues he believes should be kept in-house.

If this is what passes for a cleaned-up post after he realized he went too far in calling out his teammate, it would seem that he's not backing down from his wish to get out of Pittsburgh as quickly as possible.

Then there's Bryant himself to ESPN's Josina Anderson: "I feel like it is necessary for me to talk to everyone".

"JuJu is the future and got great talent and is going to be one of the best to play this game", Bryant commented. An NFL Network reporter stated he had screen captures of texts and emails requesting the trade. But it's telling that Tomlin and Roethlisbergder have been vocal about Bryant being a good teammate and a hard worker in the facility. When the Steelers drafted Smith-Schuster in the second round of this year's draft Bryant tweeted "lol that's Sammie Coates replacement not minds take it how you want to I am back". I worked my ass off to get myself back with no help and little support, period. "Because we can use him". I would like him to be on our team. If they stay in this quarters, I know we're supposed to run it, but I'm taking a shot. It's fair to say that Bryant has been essentially been relegated to a second tier option in the offense. "So, at that point, he never saw the ball out my hand and I don't think he ever saw the ball in the air". "That's his prerogative and that's fine", Roethlisberger said. People thought losing Bryant for a year-long suspension was going to sink the team or at least kill their chances at a Super Bowl. "It's obvious that we still got more ground to cover with him because were having a conversation about him that's not football related". I'm excited for what can come.
