Steelers teammates clean out Le'Veon Bell's locker after missed deadline

Le'Veon Bell showed before the season that he was financially ready to take a hit by holding out since he couldn't get the deal he wanted from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Running back Le'Veon Bell did not report to the Pittsburgh Steelers by the 4 p.m. ET deadline Tuesday meaning he is ineligible to play for the rest of the season.

So on Wednesday, several Steelers players took it upon themselves to see if Bell had anything good in his locker.

Linebacker Bud Dupree scored two pairs of Jordan cleats and thanked Bell. They also have plenty of cap space - more than San Francisco, if they roll over their 2018 amount - and would have a clear-cut opening at running back for which Bell would immediately assume if signed.

Bell will not return to the Steelers this season after failing to report and will become an unrestricted free agent this winter- which left his locker stuffed with goodies to raid.

It's a silly statement that includes a list of 11 teams - surely one of them will have interest in Bell, which could make Florio's prediction correct. Defensive end Cam Heyward said the most disappointing part of the Bell holdout is "that we even talk about it". That's all we can do. As if the players had any reason to keep Bell's things.

"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.
