Le’Veon Bell’s growing frustration with the Steelers spilled over to social media Thursday, weeks after singing Pittsburgh’s praises, in light of being franchise tagged for the second straight season.

Bell, 26, yearns for a long-term deal with the team that drafted him in 2013. Seeking in the neighborhood of $14.5 million per season, the Pro Bowler will be eligible for free agency next year if he and the Steelers fail to reach an agreement.
The frustration seems to be more with the reaction he is getting from fans than the pace of any negotiations he is having with the team.

Team captain Emily Leibert said the “intelligent” and “eloquent” men are the perfect fit to break barriers in the testosterone-laden NFL.
“They really just fit the bill to be a Los Angeles Ram cheerleader,” she said. “They are more than qualified to be ambassadors out in the community. They bring so much energy and there’s something so magnetic about their performance. You really can’t take your eyes off them.”
