Of all the potential deals that were discussed leading up to this past Tuesday’s trade deadline day, none was any more intriguing than Le’Veon Bell possibly returning to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers feared that running back James Conner’s shoulder injury suffered Monday night vs. Miami was potentially serious, possibly even season ending, sources told ESPN.

With that in mind, the Steelers reached out to the New York Jets and jumped into the discussions for Bell, along with the Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers, according to sources.

Bell said this past week on The Uninterrupted’s “17 Weeks” podcast that his agent informed him the Steelers were “in the mix of trying to trade for me.”

Looks like he wasn’t lying.
