    I also saw where he welcomed him to the team..but that was after the initial tweet mentioned above. I would also agree that Bell is the more versatile back (in that he can catch passes).

    I don't think you should jump to conclusion about some tweet of negative connotations that may have originated from Bell. Bell has seemed nothing but gracious, coachable and grounded in interviews. He certainly has enough good sense to know that he can't carry the ball himself 400 times, and that there was no one else on the roster. Unless there is something personal between he and Blount, which I doubt, why would he not welcome a good player and someone who can help him shoulder the load and improve the running game, which has been too far down the charts the last few years?

    I did a little research on what was tweeted... This was clearly a case of Bell showing his true feelings on the Blount signing... with a following post being damage control. I'm with you phile, he should welcome this signing.. it is fairly obvious to me that Bell feels threatened by this signing.


    Steelers LeíVeon Bell gets upset about signing competition
    Today the Pittsburgh Steelers signed a new running back to the back field with LaGarrette Blount the former New England Patriots back. Well one person seemed kind of upset with the signing.

    @L_Bell26: I canít remember the last time I was THIS angry!!!

    After posting this tweet Bell followed it up welcoming his competition.

    @L_Bell26: welcome to the fam @LG_Blount Öcanít wait to work with youu bro bro! #SteelCity

    ***Update***

    I was contacted by LeíVeonís camp who stated that the timing of his first post was bad, but was not intended towards Blount.

    I was told Bell is excited to work with the former New England Patriots bruiser.

    You know what though... after reading this again... it is possible, albeit unlikely, that Bell's comments were based on something away from football entirely. Maybe the guy was just having a bad day...lol. Complete coincidence maybe?! I'll give him the benefit of the doubt...

    It's not unlikely at all. In fact, it's the most probably scenario really.

    I agree. Just trying to be open minded, and see Steelerphile's point of view.

    I highly doubt we'll see Bell & Blount on the field at the same time.
    They might come up with a package that features them together with Mike Adams at TE, hehehe

    Of course Bell is pised off... Blount is the type of back who can take Bell's spot if he gets injured for a few games.

    Don't get "ANGRY" get COMMITTED to being the best!
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Did he say what he was angry about? Did it have anything to do with football?
