Pittsburgh Steelers #1 running back James Conner said Thursday on FOX Sports that he’s “super cool” with Bell and there is no personal beef between the backs.

“Me and Le’Veon are super cool. He’s a great person. With him holding out, people are going to call him selfish, but that’s not the case at all. It’s just business, and that’s my guy.”

Ben Roethlisberger, as much as anyone, has fanned the Conner vs. Bell flames with his comments and jokes.

Within the Steelers’ locker room, the support for Conner has been pervasive.

Looks like there’s no animosity between Le’Veon and Conner. Of course it would be way more interesting if these two hated one another. 

Still Le’Veon opened the door for this guy to flourish. Who knows when/if Le’Veon will ever return to take his place as the Steelers #1.
