On Wednesday, a handful of Pittsburgh Steelers players had some fun with Le'Veon Bell's personal items after the team removed his nameplate from his old locker.

Bell, who left $14.5 million on the table by not showing up to the team, will be a free agent in 2019. He is ineligible to play this season.

A day after Bell did not report to the Steelers, officially ending any chances of his playing this season amid his lengthy holdout, the rest of the Steelers pounced on the carcass that was his locker.

With that in mind, on Wednesday his teammates chose to playfully raid his locker for stuff such as his cleats along with other belongs like his own personal CD that he produced, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Soon a video of the treasures emerged, including a nice pair of Jordan cleats that linebacker Bud Dupree claimed.

"Appreciate the cleats my guy, appreciate the cleats, wish you the best", Dupree said as he tried on the shoes.

". Just get back to football".

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

Players answered Bell-related questions for what they hope is the last time. I hate it. [The franchise tag] could be good for both sides because you're one of the highest paid at your position.

Bell recorded 5,336 yards and 35 touchdowns on 1,229 rushing attempts, as well as 312 receptions for 2,660 yards and seven touchdowns during his six seasons in Pittsburgh.
