The running back, who hasn't been with the team at all this season, posted: "sometimes a simple ‘thank you’ can go a long way … I feel like too many ppl take me for granted.”
Bell has forfeited $853,000 each week he hasn't reported to the Steelers. If he reports next week and signs his franchise tender, he will be owed $11.9 million.
