No word on how Le'Veon's gonna take it.
- The Steelers (or, rather, the Stealers) ravaged Le'Veon Bell's locker on Wednesday after Bell failed to report to team headquarters on Tuesday, forfeiting his $14.5 million franchise tag and the season.
Wednesday afternoon players removed Bell's nameplate from his locker and started rummaging through his items.
"Appreciate the cleats, my guy", a good-natured Bud Dupree, Pittsburgh defensive end, told ESPN as he tried on his new Jordan brand cleats.
Nittany Lions Jump 6 Spots in New College Football Playoff Rankings
UCF is officially set to host a top 25 matchup in primetime Saturday, with Cincinnati moving up to No. 24 in the latest rankings. The fourth spot will most likely come down to a battle between the Michigan-Ohio State victor and the eventual Big 12 champion.
A day after Bell did not report to the Steelers, officially ending any chances of his playing this season amid his lengthy holdout, the rest of the Steelers pounced on the carcass that was his locker. But like I said, to each their own. "I am glad that we don't have to talk about this anymore".
"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.
"Part of the great thing about this sport is the band of brothers and the group of guys in here and being with them", Roethlisberger said. I hate it. [The franchise tag] could be good for both sides because you're one of the highest paid at your position. He'd nearly certainly make the Texans better, but Houston will need to evaluate if Bell is worth the money and potential headache. 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.
