ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Steelers have been "quietly listening to offers" for Martavis Bryant.
Bryant tried to force a trade at the deadline last season, but the Steelers had no interest in moving him. With Bryant entering the final year of his deal, perhaps Pittsburgh would be more willing to trade him now, but he is still a dangerous weapon for a team with real Super Bowl aspirations. They probably need to be blown away to move him during the draft.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says he has no interest in trading Martavis Bryant.
Colbert says other teams have called on Bryant, but the Steelers aren't looking to trade him. Bryant is cheap at $705,000 for 2018 but is entering the final year of his rookie deal and looks destined to leave the team at this time next year. Bryant wants to be a No. 1 receiver, and that's not going to happen in Pittsburgh. The team values his playmaking ability as a big-play threat outside.

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Bills "were trying to get involved last year" in a trade for Martavis Bryant.
We assume this happened around the trade deadline when Bryant voiced his desire to leave Pittsburgh when he lost his starting job to JuJu Smith-Schuster. Fowler believes teams came to the Steelers offering a fourth-rounder, but it wasn't enough in Pittsburgh's eyes. Fowler, however, does think a second- or high third-rounder could get the deal done this offseason. Bryant's contract expires after 2018, and he isn't expected to accept a long-term deal with the Steelers due to his desire to be a No. 1 receiver. That obviously isn't happening with the Steelers.
