Antonio Brown already is a Raider. Will longtime Steelers teammate Le’Veon Bell be joining him in donning the silver and black?
Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, the former Oakland defensive end who now hosts NBC’s “Ninja Warrior,” hinted as much in a retweet while quoting Bell’s tweet from Monday, in which he was “sooooo torn right now,” with four sad face emojis followed by “…decisions.”
“.@LeVeonBell am I allowed to tell people yet? Happy for you bro, make us proud!” Gbaja-Biamila tweeted Tuesday, the “us” being significant for a former player most associated with the Raiders, with whom he played in 2003 and ’04.
Asked if he were trolling, Gbaja-Biamila wrote, “I quit school because of recess, I don’t play!”
Bell, a three-time 1,000-yard rusher in five seasons with the Steelers, sat out the entire season last year in Pittsburgh in a contract dispute. The Jets also have been among the NFL teams linked to him via free agency.
The Raiders acquired Brown, one of the top receivers in the league, in a trade with the Steelers on Saturday.
