Antonio Brown shares footage of Steelers' Freestyle Friday.
Le'Veon Bell spit another freestyle today during the "Freestyle Friday" cypher in the Steelers locker room, and once again he was rapping about money. And women. And his hair.
Antonio Brown just shared some footage of the freestyle session from inside the Steelers locker room, which also included a brief clip of Steelers safety Robert Golden. Check out the bars below, courtesy of TMZ.
Bell's lyrics about getting money shouldn't come as a surprise, it seems he always has dollars signs on his mind. He made that clear when he sat out the entire preseason before signing a one-year $12.1 million franchise tender with the Steelers.
Before he finally inked the deal, Bell was being pressured on Snapchat by Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and linebacker Bud Dupree, and ultimately responded to his teammates with a freestyle which he posted on twitter, wherein he says "Imma need 17, cause 26 is savage."
The "17 (million)" Bell rapped about during the pre-season would easily make him the highest paid running back in NFL history, doubling the $8 million that Devonta Freeman - who is the highest paid RB in the sport - is due annually. Freeman, who is also 25 years old, was scheduled to make just $1.79 million this season in the last year of his rookie contract, but will now rake in over $8 million annually as part of the 5-year $41.25 million extension that he signed this off-season.
Le'Veon has averaged 130 yards from scrimmage per game over the course of his four-year NFL career, including at least 75 receptions in two of the last three season. Because of his abilities as a dual threat running back, he will likely become the NFL's highest paid running back once he signs a long-term deal - the only question is how much will the Steelers be willing to pay him compared to the NFL's elite running backs.
Bell has scored three touchdowns this season and is averaging 81 rushing yards, as well as 24.5 receiving yards, per game. The Steelers, sitting atop the AFC North with a 3-1 record, will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
