There's no love lost for Le'Veon Bell.

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steelers players removed Le'Veon Bell's name over his locker and started dividing up his many Air Jordan 11 cleats and other football gear, as seen in the video embedded below.

Bell forfeited his $14.5 million franchise tag by failing to report to the team on Tuesday.

Players also found items like shirts, a suit and a CD labeled "Le'Veon Bell #1".

"Appreciate the cleats, my guy", Bud Dupree said while takin' his new Js. "I wish you success, my guy". "I am glad that we won't talk about this anymore, though".

". Just get back to football. This train doesn't stop for anybody".

"To each their own on what they want to walk away from", he said.

After practice on Wednesday, multiple Steelers players raided Bell's locker.

The scene in Pittsburgh's locker room today comes after head coach Mike Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told reporters that their texts to Bell went unanswered. I hate it. [The franchise tag] could be good for both sides because you're one of the highest paid at your position.

The three-time Pro Bowl running back had 1,291 yards and nine touchdowns on a career-high 321 rushing attempts, as well as 85 receptions for 655 yards and two touchdowns in 2017.
