The Le’Veon Bell “holdout” from the Pittsburgh Steelers story has been beaten like a dead horse. There is no need to speculate when the All-Pro running back will return to the team, the general sentiment from all involved is Bell will eventually return, but when certain people speak publicly about the situation, it is worth noting.
Over a week ago, General Manager Kevin Colbert spoke candidly about how Le’Veon Bell has nothing to gain from his holdout, and on Monday head coach Mike Tomlin went on 93.7 The Fan, and of course was asked about the ongoing saga.
“I have no idea when he’s going to show up,” Tomlin said. “I need him here yesterday. Not only for us, but for him. That’s my opinion. This team development process, this work that we’re doing out here is very much a part of overall game readiness. He’s a tremendous athlete, he’s highly conditioned, but this is football out here and you cant simulate that. My opinion is I need him here yesterday, but I don’t always get what I want. So, when he gets here, we’ll deal with it and move forward.”
