Now that Le’Veon Bell has been granted freedom from the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 27-year-old will perhaps be the biggest free agency chase this offseason as teams try to bring in the game-changing running back.
Bell sat out all of last season after not signing a deal with the Steelers, who pegged the franchise tag on the running back.
But now Bell is free to choose where he will play next year, so he decided to seek some professional advice. And what better place to do that than Twitter. He posed the question Saturday afternoon.
To little surprise, Bell was flooded with responses from fans. But the running back only replied to one suggestion that he should sign with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Heads up, there is some NSFW language in the tweet.
Naturally, that sent Eagles fans into a frenzy, and it even caught the attention of a couple Eagles players.
The Eagles recommendation was not the only suggestion Bell interacted with, however. The running back did retweet Portland Trail Blazers star Damien Lillard’s tweet that Bell sign with Lillard’s hometown Oakland Raiders.
Free agency begins March 13, and speculation only will surround Bell until he makes a decision. One thing is for sure, it’s shaping up to be an eventful NFL offseason.
