Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell says too many take him for granted

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell warms up before playing the Jaguars Saturday, Jan. 14, 2018 at Heinz Field.

Pittsburgh Steelers hold-out Le’Veon Bell just wants to be appreciated.

In a tweet early Sunday morning the running back, who has not been with the team at all this season, posted: “sometimes a simple “thank you” can go a long way…I feel like too many ppl take me for granted…”

He didn’t mention names, or teams, in the tweet, so people are free to speculate.

Following last Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City, Bell liked some Instagram posts showing the Steelers getting drilled by the Chiefs.

He also raised some eyebrows when he tweeted the inquisitive monocle emoji in the wake of the Steelers tie in Cleveland in week 1.

The Steelers placed the franchise tag on the running back in the offseason, after which Bell skipped training camp and has not joined the team.

On Monday, another charged tweet from a Steelers’ star caused a controversy in the locker room . After the loss to the Chiefs, where he yelled at several offensive coaches, wide receiver Antonio Brown tweeted “Trade me let’s find out.”

The Steelers face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
