    Steelers trade WR Martavis Bryant to Raiders for third-round pick

    The Pittsburgh Steelers traded wide receiver Martavis Bryant to the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night for a third-round draft pick.

    The talented but enigmatic Bryant had asked to be traded out of Pittsburgh in September, and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said Thursday that Oakland had been "on this for a while" when asked about the deal.

    The Steelers received the 79th overall pick, which the Raiders received earlier Thursday night when they traded down in the first round, allowing the Arizona Cardinals to select quarterback Josh Rosen at No. 10.

    Bryant missed the entire 2016 season because of a suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy but returned to haul in 50 receptions for 603 yards and three touchdowns last season. He told Fowler that his career in Pittsburgh had "its ups and downs."
