Multiple Steelers say Le'Veon Bell's items were packed up, placed in the back and likely to be shipped to Bell. They stressed nothing malicious, but this was closure. "Now, it's all understood, and everybody can get past it," corner Mike Hilton said.

One additional note from Wednesday's scene in the Steelers locker room: Practice squad receiver Tevin Jones, who was in the area of Bell's locker Wednesday, said about the items: "I'm sure they will get back to him."

Steelers players Wednesday answered Le'Veon Bell questions for what they hope is last time. DE Cam Heyward said the most disappointing part of the saga is "that we even talk about it." "It sucks when a guy doesn't have to answer his own questions," Heyward said. "If they aren't on the team, I'm not worried about it"

Stealers? Bell's locker raided by teammates

Less than 24 hours after Le'Veon Bell forfeited the rest of the 2018 season by not reporting to the Steelers, his teammates were picking through what was left in his locker.

Steelers players went into Le'Veon Bell's locker, removing his nameplate and rummaging through items. Bud Dupree says thanks for the Jordan brand cleats.

Le'Veon Bell's nameplate is still on his locker, but that will be removed soon enough. "The thing about it is he's not here, he's not going to be here, so we don't have to talk about it," Ben Roethlisberger said.

Ben Roethlisberger texted Le'Veon Bell before the deadline, didn't hear back: "I said I hoped he showed up. If he decided not to I wished him nothing but the best. He was a great teammate and football player."

Why did Bell leave over 14 million on the table? (1:13)

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Le'Veon Bell will most likely never play for the Steelers again, but the team faces a decision this offseason: Transition tag Bell at $14.5 million, giving Pittsburgh the right to match any offer, or let him enter free agency and get a mid-round compensatory pick for his services. Bell told ESPN in October that the Steelers planned to transition tag him. But the Steelers might want a clean divorce at this point.
