First Call: Former Steeler wanted Levan Bell back in Pittsburgh. Crows mad at the bangles. Aaron Donald’s Surprising Revelation.

About an hour ago

Friday’s “First Call” gives us a former Steeler who wishes Leon Bell would have returned to Pittsburgh instead of moving to Kansas City. Another AFC coach admits his team needs Bell. Aaron Donald’s surprise quote about his huge game last week. And the Ravens are mad at the Bengals.

Good luck next time

Former Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro Livon Bell is signing with the Kansas City Chiefs.

After all this became a free agent for two days. The Jets fired Bell on Tuesday due to a strained relationship between him and head coach Adam Gass.

According to Jeremy Fower of ESPN, The Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins were the two teams seriously looking to get Bell. The Dolphins, the Bills and the Chiefs are the next three opponents of the Jets.

Coincidence? I do not think so!

Well, it’s a coincidence. But Bills coach Sean McDermott was not playing games. He made Bell aware of his desire to land.

Bill and Chief play each other on Monday night. However, Bell will also not be able to practice at Casey unless he has at least six days of negative Covid-19 testing.

Will it be worth it?

Bell’s former Pittsburgh teammate Bruce Gradkowski believes it would be a good idea for the Steelers to reclaim the former pro bowler.

On Thursday, Gradkowski was at 93.7 fans. And the former quarterback was asked if he would seek Bell back on the Steelers?

“Absolutely,” said Gradkowski. “I do not hesitate. This is the misconception that he brings the play into the locker room, he was always a great team guy. I felt that Levine has always been a great dude. He never brought the play into the locker room. He always worked hard. ”

That’s right. Belle worked hard. And that didn’t bring the play into the locker room.

It was his decision not to work, and his years of absence in the locker room – then he said he would appear in it – brought that drama.

Fighting like cats and 3 birds ???

The Baltimore Ravens are mad at the Cincinnati Bengals.

Well, at least there is a defensive coordinator.

Don “Wink” Martidale has been given the ticket that the Bengals kicked a late field goal to avoid a avoidable tout in Baltimore’s 27-3 win on Sunday. They had only 37 seconds left in the game.

Baltimore improved 4-1. The Bengals sank to 1-3-1-1.

Through, Martindale was asked for his reaction to the decision of Bengal coach Zack Taylor.

“He knew what it was because he was so quiet when I put him in the field.” “There are some people who take it as a victory. We will see. We will have plenty to talk about when we play them next time. “

Hey, those are bangles. You are Ravens. Needless to say. At all.

Bad idea

Former Pitt star Aaron Donald put up four sacks for the Los Angeles Rams last week.

He revealed on Thursday that Washington failed to double him on any bag.

“When I get the chance to get those blocks one by one, I have to take advantage of it and I have to keep doing it, keep improving myself and keep trying to be productive,” Donald said via Profutub TLatek. Community.

Yes. Take a look.

It’s pretty much poorly planned by Washington. Donald now has 7.5 sacks to lead the NFL.
