There could be a major #NFL trade in the works. Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver #Martavis Bryant is reportedly upset with his role on the team and wants a trade [VIDEO]. This comes after the team stood by his side throughout his drug and disciplinary problems of the past few years. Nevertheless, a trade could be beneficial for both parties. If the Steelers do find a way to move Bryant prior to the trade deadline, here are four teams that could be interested in the troubled, but talented receiver.

Jacksonville Jaguars

More targets won't necessarily solve the riddle that is Blake Bortles; it couldn't hurt, though. The Jaguars hold at least a share of the AFC South lead through Week 6, one of the bigger surprises of the NFL season.

Marqise Lee is the team's leading receiver with 291 yards, though. The team is beginning to become run-centric, with rookie tailback Leonard Fournette emerging as a star; Bryant could help keep defenses honest.

Cincinnati Bengals

This is just what the Bengals do. They try to rehabilitate talented players who have run afoul of the NFL, or even of the law. They did it was Pacman Jones several years ago, and they're trying to do it with Joe Mixon right now. Bryant appears to be far along in his path to beat his drug problem, so he has that going for him. The only issue here is division; it will be a hard sell for the Steelers to move Bryant to another team within the AFC North.

Washington Redskins

In the offseason, Washington lost their two best receivers in free agency. They replaced DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon with Terrelle Pryor and Josh Doctson.

They are in the middle of the pack in receiving yards, but a team with playoff aspirations needs to improve their passing game to match the caliber of other conference foes they may face. This could be the end of the Kirk Cousins era in Washington - Bryant represents the kind of boom-or-bust prospect NFL teams need to acquire when a change is afoot.

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams helped out Jared Goff by acquiring Sammy Watkins during the preseason. He returned the favor by improving drastically from his rookie year, leading Los Angeles to a 4-2 record. Watkins has been slightly disgruntled, though. Bryant has a significantly friendlier contract and might actually pair well with breakout candidate Cooper Kupp. Los Angeles suddenly has the look of an NFL contender - no disgruntled player should have the ability to ruin that. #Washington Redskins
