Le'Veon Bell uses bizarre upside-down tweet to lash out at his critics on Twitter
The Le'Veon Bell situation has taken a strange new turn
If you've been paying attention to the Le'Veon Bell situation, then you may have noticed that there seems to be at least one new twist every day.
On Monday, we Steelers running back hinting that he would soon be leaving Miami and heading for Pittsburgh. On Tuesday, he actually arrived in Pittsburgh, and then he did what anyone else would do: He headed straight for the nearest LA Fitness, where he .from the
