LeVeon Bell Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

During his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, star running back LeVeon Bell was the most dominant running back in the entire NFL, earning two first-team All-Pro honors during his first five seasons with the team. Obviously, that relationship went sour as a result of a contract dispute, but it sure sounds like Bell has some serious regrets about that.

LeVeon Bell ultimately chose to sit out the entire 2018 season rather than sign a franchise tag after the two sides failed to agree on a long-term contract. And in a recent video posted on social media, Bell admitted that was a mistake, apologizing to Steelers fans and making it clear that he never should have left Pittsburgh.

“I never apologized to the fans for sitting out, or leaving the Steelers,” Bell said in the video. “I never apologized. So I want to say I apologize for leaving the best damn fans there is in this damn world. I shouldn’t have left. I apologize, I should never have left. I apologize. That’s my fault. That’s on me.”

It’s a pretty brutal admission from the former Steelers star, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on social media as a result.



Obviously, things did not work out too well for Bell after he chose to sit out that 2018 season as he quickly fizzled out of the league. It’s safe to say that if he could do it over again, he’d do things quite differently.
