James Conner Says the Steelers are Closer Without Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown

Steelers running back James Conner isn’t going to miss Le’Veon Bell or Antonio Brown.  The 24-year-old joined Pro Football Talk to discuss, among other things, the departure of the two stars.

According to Conner, who stepped up in a big way for Pittsburgh when Bell sat out the entire season, the team became closer dealing with their drama.

“I think only time will tell,” Steelers running back James Conner told #PFTPM on Monday. “I think we became closer maybe because of everything. Throughout OTAs and minicamp, it was fun to see the guys. You know, come into the facility, excited to be there, the interactions and the relationships. They’ve all been great so far. Great vibes within our organization. We’re excited about the future, man.”

The Steelers can expect another solid season out of Conner.  The entire team should be able to keep their focus on the field this season.
