Former NFL running back turned analyst Maurice Jones-Drew provided an update Le’Veon Bell. He spoke with Pittsburgh’s holdout and provided the update on the Dave Dameshek Football Program:
“He said to me ‘people think that I don’t like Pittsburgh, I don’t like James Conner, I don’t like these guys.’ He was like yes, I was disappointed they went out and spoke about my contract, understandably so. He was like, but I still want them to do well, they’re still guys that I work with and guys that I’ve put in this extra work with blood, sweat and tears like I still want them to do well.
He was happy for James Conner after that performance but that performance justifies why he’s not there right now. If you’re going to give James Conner 31 carries, imagine how many you’d give to Le’Veon Bell?”
None of this matters to Steelers fans and probably some of Bell’s teammates. Don’t get me started on Fantasy Football team owners, they’re losing their minds.
Steelers fans want to root for a winner and they have a better chance to do so when Bell is on the field, no matter how well James Conner plays. Unfortunately Bell is nowhere near ready to return to the Steelers.
