LeVeon Bell has no hard feelings towards Steelers says Antonio Brown is a good person

was a fan favorite in Pittsburgh this time four years ago when Bell was fresh off of an All-Pro season with the Steelers. Bell is now a member of the after an unceremonious end to his time with the that included sitting out the entire 2018 season over a contract dispute. During a recent , Bell discu sed his current feelings with regard to the Steelers, the team he spent five seasons with before departing in March via free agency."I have no resentment to them," said Bell, who set a Steelers franchise records for the most rushing yards in a regular season and postseason game. "They were making a busine s decision, and so was I. So at the end of the day, there's no hard feelings towards that organization or anything. There's still a lot of Bob Uecker Jersey players on the Steelers that I still talk to. is still one of my closest guys; I talk to like, on a daily basis. It just didn't work. It was a relationship that didn't work. It worked for a certain extent of time, then we broke up. They're happy where they are, and I'm happy where I am, and that's it."Last offseason, Bell reportedly turned down Pittsburgh's reported five-year, $70 million offer that included $33 million guaranteed in the first three years of the deal. Bell instead signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract that included $35 million guaranteed. Despite not receiving the same type of contract fellow running back received from the , Bell says he doesn't regret sitting out the 2018 season -- a decision that cost him $14.5 million (had he played under the franchise tag) last season."It was one of the toughest decisions of my life just because of the fact that I've been playing football since I was four or David Justice Jersey five-years-old, each and every year leading up to when I was 25," Bell said of his decision to sit out the 2018 season. "You turn 26 and you gotta sit out a year, it's like, 'Dang, what am I Dale Murphy Jersey gonna do now?' That was the hardest seven months of my life not really playing football watching it as a fan. And I learned a lot watching the game of football and actually sitting out from it, because I had more time to really watch players and see what they were good at, see what players were bad at, and try to put (certain things) in my game." Bell was also asked about , his teammate in Pittsburgh from 2013-17. Brown, following an ugly divorce from the Steelers, was granted his release out of Oakland before joining the just before the start of the regular season. Brown is now dealing with that overshadowed his solid debut with New England."Sometimes, it's kinda hard to overcome when a lot of negative things are happening or when people are saying a lot of negative things about you," Bell said of Brown. "It's like a snowball effect. It happened to me when I had my suspension. I don't ever wanna get too low on myself. I hope Antonio's doing the same thing. If I had to give him advice, that's what I'd give him."If you know AB personally, you'll know that he's like, a good person," Bell continued. "He's not really trying to harm anybody. Maybe there's something he wants and he's trying to achieve it. He might go Danny Santana Jersey a different way about it than other people would but, it is what it is." Bell did handle things differently with regard to how he landed on his new team. While his way wasn't nece sarily easy, Bell ultimately landed with the Jets, has no remaining i sues with his former team and is looking forward to the future. Bell looked good in his Jets debut, ama sing 93 Kurt Suzuki Jersey all-purpose yards and a touchdown."All Saturday night, it was hard for me to sleep," Bell said about the night before New York's season-opener. "When I was warming up I felt like a rookie all over again but a veteran at the same time if that makes sense. Coach Gase, he told me that I was getting the ball on the first play so that I could get it out of the way, so once I actually got the ball and I got tackled, it just seemed like everything kinda snapped back into, 'Oh, OK, I'm back. This feels normal again.'"I didn't feel rust, even though, as time goes on, I'll look back, maybe in Week 8, I'll look back at Week 1 and be like 'Maybe I was a little rusty then.' But I didn't feel rusty. I felt good. It felt like football."
