Martavis Bryant’s return to action for the Pittsburgh Steelers hasn’t gone as many had hoped it would.

With just 17 catches for 231 yards this year, the wide receiver has requested a trade from the Steelers, according to ESPN and NFL Network.

Bryant missed the 2016 season while serving a yearlong suspension. In 2015, he had 50 catches for 765 yards and six touchdowns.

But Bryant has yet to have more than five catches in a game this year, and he eclipsed 50 yards just once (91 against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2).

The trade deadline is on Oct. 31.
