Steelers Players Raid Le'Veon Bell's Locker

The scene in Pittsburgh's locker room today comes after head coach Mike Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told reporters that their texts to Bell went unanswered.

Le'Veon Bell did not report to the Steelers on Tuesday ahead of the deadline for the two-time All-Pro running back to maintain eligibility to play this season.

Bell, who left $14.5 million on the table by not showing up to the team, will be a free agent in 2019.

Linebacker Bud Dupree even thanked Bell for the new pair of Jordan Brand cleats.

Players also found items like shirts, a suit and a CD labeled "Le'Veon Bell #1". "To each their own what they want to walk away from".

Marko Arnautovic has hinted that he is ready to leave West Ham and "compete with the best players". Arnautovic moved from Stoke to West Ham for £25 million in 2017.

Bell's nameplate is still on his locker, but he won't be coming back.

That's pretty cold on Bell's part, but it's not like it's a major change from the way Bell has approached the rest of this season. "We can just move on, keep getting James (Conner) some more yards and keep winning games".

"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.

"I think the Houston Texans could really use Le'Veon Bell", Kellerman said. 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.

"Save your money, get a lot of information on what we're trying to do moving forward and that way stuff like this doesn't happen", Foster said in a message directed at players.
