Roethlisberger: Steelers would welcome back RB Le'Veon Bell

Ben Roethlisberger thinks the Pittsburgh Steelers gladly will accept LeVeon Bell if he rejoins the team during its bye in two weeks – on one condition.

“If he can come back and help us and be ready to go, then we’ll be ready to welcome him back,” Roethlisberger said Tuesday on his 93.7 FM radio segment. “There were a lot of things said earlier this year, but that’s in the past. We’ve moved on, and he’s moving on in a sense to getting back and being with us.”

There are reports the Steelers are still trying to trade Bell, however, this story certainly seems to open the door to a return to Pittsburgh.
