Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is frustrated with his contract situation with the team. For the second year in a row, he has been hit with the franchise tag and will earn approximately $14 million this year if no new contract is agreed upon.
With his long-term deal in limbo, Bell reached out to the Twitter world for some sympathy, lamenting being painted as a villain.
But instead of support, Bell got the opposite reaction.
such a drama queen

LOL… You could be a GOD, but you chose money over being a legend. Most of your fans live check to check.

Yeah I can see how making 14 million a year could be so difficult

Here's the facts, the steelers can't afford to pay you what you want so to stay with the team youll have to drop that figure whether your worth that figure or not, that's reality of being on a successful team year in year out cap is small

Hey if you think you're worth 17 mil a year, that's great. Turns out Steelers don't and I think the rest of the NFL teams will also think 17 mil is absurd. Btw, you're painting yourself as the villian.

Not much sympathy out there for Bell right now.
