It’s officially official. Pittsburgh Steelers holdout running back Le’Veon Bell will not report to the team prior to the Tuesday afternoon deadline. This means that the All-Pro performer is no longer eligible to play for the remainder of the season.

It’s also pretty much a foregone conclusion that Bell has played his final game in a Steelers uniform. What an ugly end to what seemed to be a bountiful marriage between the two sides.

In his stead, second-year back James Conner has put up over 1,000 total yards thus far this season. And that second marriage is where the Twitter reacts from this less-than-surprising news start.

That’s not to say a player in Bell who has been thrown aside like the running back version of Nathan Peterman avoided ridicule.

Steelers fans were also seemingly all up in their feels.

The very few still in Bell’s corner stood up and showed their respect.

Meanwhile…

Yes, this long American nightmare is finally over. No word yet on whether we’ll have live flight maps of Bell’s next move. Stay tuned.
