Steelers teammates turn on Le'Veon Bell: 'He f--ked us'

He also said it was stupid for Bell to follow his agent's suggestion to wait for the Steelers to declare their plans for him this year before he signs.

"Football's the ultimate team sport".

"Why play hide and seek?"

Samuels was one of the most dynamic receiving backs going into the 2018 draft, where the Steelers took him in the fifth round a year after taking Conner in the third.

Drawing from my own NFL experiences and assessing Bell's current standing in this league, I think the three-time Pro Bowler has earned the right to receive a big payday - and sitting out until November 13 gives him the best opportunity to do that as a free agent next March. He's been here busting his butt.

Bell is unlikely to play in that game, and it's uncertain when he will return.

"He f-- us", one veteran player summed it up for ESPN.

Trump Lobbying GOP Senators to Turn Against Sessions
This is only the latest in a series of insults Trump has hurled at Sessions in the last 10 days, while contemplating firing him. In fact, Politico noted, some Republican senators have already expressed a willingness to turn against Sessions.

Conner will get first-team reps this week, and teammates have praised his development.

Conner had a strong preseason, with 100 rushing yards on 19 carries to go with 64 receiving yards.

Agent Adisa Bakari, who represents Bell, told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday that his client will "get there when he's there" and still intends to make this the best statistical season of his career. "What would your plan be?" "We had something exceptional occur".

Speaking to reporters in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, multiple Steelers teammates ripped Bell for his lengthy holdout, which now threatens to stretch into Week 1 against the Browns. Even if he does finally break the hold out and show up in time for Sunday's game, it's going to cause problems for Pittsburgh if everybody in their locker room is ticked off at him. DeAngelo Williams led the way with 462 yards and five touchdowns.

I think most people would choose the latter. "Whether it's someone's first or a year ago, none of that should matter".

"Like I said, we have a lot of weapons", Roethlisberger said. "Right now we're just singularly focused on the guys that are here and working and who have been here and working".

Steelers lineman Ramon Foster made light of the situation on Twitter, playing off "Where's Waldo?" But the former Pitt All-American is unproven as an National Football League running back, and second-stringer Stevan Ridley's 1,000-yard season was six years ago. After all, the Steelers rode Bell to the tune of 406 touches during 15 regular-season games in 2017. The way that it's being handled by Bell and company is very much personal, not business. If he does decide to hold out until that date, Bell will lose slightly more than $8.5 million of his $14.544 million tag.
