Bell and Roethlisberger shared a backfield for five seasons, with Bell averaging 128.9 yards from scrimmage per game since 2013.

"I think the Houston Texans could really use Le'Veon Bell", Kellerman said. While it might all the Steelers to bring Bell back for a smaller contract if he signs elsewhere and Pittsburgh doesn't match they would lose the third-round comp pick. "It's been fun, we've been on a fun roll, and the season goes by a lot faster when you're winning games".

"We've got to inform ourselves this next time around so this type of stuff doesn't happen".
