The Steelers number one enemy these days is no doubt Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. Last season he may have all by himself knocked the Steelers out of a chance at a Super Bowl when he injured QB Ben Roethlisberger and then knocked out WR Antonio Brown in the Steelers overtime win over the Bengals.
In one of the more puzzling texts shared on social media in awhile, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, who was also injured by the Bengals and knocked out for the season in the teams’ first meeting, got a text from Burfict – take it for what it’s worth.
Is Burfict turning over a new leaf? He did go on ESPN and basically whined his way through an interview saying how he was targeted by the NFL for his hit on Brown in the wild card game.
Whatever the case, he’ll have plenty of time to think about his actions, as he’s going to sit the first three games of the season after getting a suspension.
But texting Bell saying how happy he is to see him running again?
Odd to say the least.
