Le'Veon Bell not leaving Steelers unless they trade him

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Joshua Dobbs

Undrafted free agent quarterback Bart Houston threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter with 6:35 remaining in the fourth quarter to give the Pittsburgh Steelers a 17-13 victory against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Note to National Football League defenses: Look Out. There is some promise behind and likely after Le'Veon Bell.

Don't think that momentum is building? The focus was on the debuts of James Conner and Martavis Bryant in the Pittsburgh Steelers Preseason Week two.

Bell has spent most of August in South Florida, skipping preseason training and games for Pittsburgh, while also failing to sign his new $12.1 million franchise tender. He carried the load and ran roughly 100 yards on the day. Fans should hope that they can accomplish this again because after two games the backups haven't given them a reason too celebrate.

"We potentially could have scored on that drive", head coach Mike Tomlin said.

General manager Brandon Beane made it official Sunday night by saying the team respects Boldin's decision to retire. The only other running back to receive carries was Fitzgerald Toussaint, who had two carries for six yards. "There are always going to be things to correct and that's for the next game". You just got to adjust and I'll be good. I know this: Seems like the entire city is rooting for Conner.

This is not to downgrade Conner's performance at all. That means tons of money has poured in on Los Angeles and we're betting much of it is sharp action to make the books not only move to three but open themselves up to a middle by moving to 3 ½. A pulled hamstring kept him from participating fully in all of rookie minicamp, organized team activities and minicamp in the spring. Eleven wins is a lot, but the Steelers should get there. "(You can't) underscore that element of it. The Cleveland Browns are at the dregs of the division and have long way to go before they aspire to winning the division, however for the first time in a long time the Browns seem to have a direction and players to build around. He was going to have to earn that spot. Sunday was a step toward preparing Bryant for that role. While Conner had trouble holding onto the ball receiving, he showed great strength rushing. His battle back from cancer is something that can and has inspired many people. It also displayed Bryant's athletic ability, which the Steelers will be relying on this season to contribute to the offense.
