Le’Veon Bell has been quite active on social media lately, and he took to Twitter Monday to share a message with fantasy football owners.

Bell, who obviously didn’t play a single down last year as he sat out in protest over Pittsburgh’s contract negotiations, apologized to fantasy owners that drafted him last season.

Many, many fans were burned in their fantasy leagues after pinning their hopes on Bell. Even with the threat of a holdout, he was still one of the top fantasy players on everyone’s board when most did their drafts.

So, yeah. Oh behalf of everyone who did draft you, we appreciate the shout out, Le’Veon. Even if it comes nearly a year too late.

Though, some fans aren’t quite as willing to forgive and forget.

Still, this tweet was 1,000 times better than his last viral message.
