Back in 2014, Tarantino requested a Twitter follow from Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, her favorite player. Once Bell obliged, Tarantino followed up with a direct message that she would invite him to prom one day.

“I have to say it’s between Le’Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliott. I think, for me, I think I have to go Le’Veon Bell. He does so many things, coming out of the backfield, lining up outside. He’s big. I’m partial to big backs. I’m 6-foot-3. I think Le’Veon Bell, to me, is the best back in the NFL.”

This comment is sure to rankle Cowboys fans who watched Elliott break off 1,631 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns as a rookie. In his fourth NFL season, Bell averaged 157 total yards per game, third-most all time for a running back.

Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell has donated $750,000 to his high school for new turf at its football stadium.

Bell graduated from Groveport-Madison High School in Groveport, Ohio, before playing college football at Michigan State. The Steelers drafted Bell in the second round of the 2013 draft.

Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell has rewritten the record books once again, breaking the franchise’s single-game postseason rushing mark in Sunday’s 30-12 wild-card victory.

Here’s what Pittsburgh’s game plan likely will be, according to sources around the league: The Steelers are expected to use the $12.377 million franchise tag on Bell, restricting his ability to go to another team, while trying to hammer out a long-term extension in the offseason. This would provide the Steelers with the protection they would need for a player who is as good as any in the game, but who has been suspended twice and is one strike away from a 10-game suspension.

“If Le’Veon Bell wants to get a long-term deal, this is going to be his best and sort of only chance to get that done,” said Savage, now a front office analyst for ESPN. “In general with running backs, the supply so far outweighs the demand. If I went down 20 tailback names in the draft, I’d say a lot of those guys could play some role in a backfield by committee. It’s such a fungible asset. So for as great as he is, that challenge is there.”

The NFL is investigating whether the Pittsburgh Steelers properly listed running back Le’Veon Bell on last week’s injury reports, a source told ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter on Friday.

Bell said after Sunday’s AFC Championship Game loss to the New England Patriots that he had been managing a groin injury in recent weeks. Bell was hurt in the game and carried the ball five times for 18 yards.

Bell got consecutive Wednesdays off during the playoffs with a “not injury related” designation, and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Bell had an excused absence on Jan. 19. A source close to Bell told ESPN that the absence was specifically for a personal matter and not groin-related.

Le’Veon Bell has missed 17 regular season games in four years, but when he’s on the field he plays more and contributes more than any other NFL running back.

Bell leads the league with 157.0 yards from scrimmage per game, racking up 1,884 yards and nine touchdowns in 12 games. Bell missed three games because of an NFL substance-abuse violation, his second in as many years, and he’ll sit for the Steelers’ season finale against the Cleveland Browns as the team prepares for the playoffs.
