Steelers players confirm no one kept any of Le'Veon Bell's stuff

Steelers players confirm no one kept any of Le'Veon Bell's stuff

Le'Veon Bell's time with the Pittsburgh Steelers has seemingly come to an unceremonious conclusion after he failed to report before Tuesday's 4pm deadline.

"I want to confirm that Le'Veon Bell did not sign his franchise tender today and, as a result, he will not be eligible to play football during the 2018 season", Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said in an official statement on Tuesday.

A day after Bell did not report to the Steelers, officially ending any chances of his playing this season amid his lengthy holdout, the rest of the Steelers pounced on the carcass that was his locker. Some players didn't exactly continue the courtesy of keeping Bell's locker the way he left it.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler posted video of linebacker Bud Dupree holding up a pair of Jordans and thanking Bell for the shoes.

Outside the courtroom, Acosta spoke to reporters and thanked other journalists for their support in the case. The judge's order says that the pass must be reinstated as a CNN lawsuit against Donald Trump continues.

"Appreciate the cleats, my guy", Dupree said into a camera. But like I said, to each their own.

The Broncos are just fine at running back without Bell.

Guard Ramon Foster, who also serves as the Steelers' NFL Players Association rep, offered some advice for Bell. At least one Steeler did try to get in touch with Bell ahead of the deadline. "The thing about it is he's not here, he's not going to be here, so we don't have to talk about it", Roethlisberger said. "But they retain your rights so you don't hit the open market". Additionally, Bell's replacement James Conner ranks second in the National Football League with 1,158 yards from scrimmage and has reached the endzone 11 times.
