Le’Veon Bell explains what is behind his upside-down tweets

Le’Veon Bell explains what is behind his upside-down tweets

Meanwhile, his teammates continue to express their frustration with the situation, with one unidentified player saying, "This Le'Veon thing is just a cloud over us at this point". Bell has been working out in Miami this season, but on Monday he tweeted "Fairwell Miami" without further explanation.

There have mixed reports dating back to the preseason on when Bell would report to the team, with an expectation he would return to the team during their Week 7 bye.

Reports from earlier in the season suggested Bell needed to sign with the team by November 13 if he wanted to retain his free agent eligibility following the season.

It appears that speculation has been confirmed as Bell approaches a deadline to join the Steelers this year.

The NFL's collective bargaining agreement is a complicated animal, and apparently even Le'Veon Bell is still learning the ins and outs of it.




Bell does not have to report to the Steelers by a certain date to get an accrued season to become eligible for free agency, contrary to what ESPN and others previously reported.

Bell told ESPN in early October that he is staying away to preserve his long-term health for his next contract but intends to play football this season.

He responded to Wednesday's report with a pair of cryptic tweets posted in an upside-down font. Don't judge me off my decisions because maybe this isn't what you'd do. I'm not going to apologize for what I believe is right for myself, family and the rest of my peers, period.

In the meantime, the Steelers will keeping pounding the ball with James Conner, who has tallied 1,085 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns as the Steelers have started the season 5-2-1, good for first place in the AFC North.
