Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell Plans To Continue Celebrating After Big Plays, Touchdowns

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell took to Twitter Tuesday to say that he won’t stop celebrating after big plays and touchdowns anytime soon.

Bell, who was flagged Sunday in the first quarter for taunting following a 16-yard run, informed fans Tuesday evening on his Twitter account that he grew up watching former San Diego Chargers and New York Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson play and that he wanted to be him as a kid.

Tomlin had a signature touchdown celebration and Bell has always wanted to mimic it and will. The second-year running back also let it be known that he won’t stop pointing after first downs, either.

During his Tuesday press conference, head coach Mike Tomlin said that he has told his players that if they can’t celebrate within the confines of the rules they won’t be allowed to celebrate at all.

“I’m not trying to take the genuine emotions and excitement of the game away from our guys,” Tomlin said. “That’s not me and that’s not the right thing to do. But I will ask them to do it within the guidelines of the rules and if they can’t do that consistently then yes [no celebrating] will be a mandate.”

 

For now, Bell has made it a point to let us know that he will continuing pointing until he’s told not to.
