Steelers' Le'Veon Bell sends upside-down tweets, asks not to be judged
The latest twist in the Le'Veon Bell saga has been turned upside down.
Bell, who has remained silent on social media until recent days, sent out two cryptic tweets on his verified Twitter account Wednesday night that were posted upside down, forcing readers to adjust their phones to make sense of them.
Here is what the Pittsburgh Steelers running back wrote (with the text properly displayed):
"Just about everybody has an opinion on my life and worried about what I'm doing... don't judge me off my decisions because maybe this isn't what you'd do... but most people don't take the time to just simply read between the lines... and that's clearly on them...

"I'm not apologizing for what I believe is right for myself, family, and the rest of my peers, period... also if you're really finding the time to figure out what I'm saying, you've proved by point."

Bell has forfeited $7.7 million of his $14.544 million salary while staying away from the team and refusing to sign his franchise-tag tender. Bell departed Miami earlier in the week and reportedly is in Pittsburgh while he determines when to rejoin the team.
If Bell doesn't report by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, he will be unable to play in the NFL this season.
