NFL players get lots and lots of equipment during the season. Gloves, blades, sweatshirts, hoodies and more are accumulating as they wear on Sundays. Most throw into sports rotation, wear a little, and then confuse them with newer, better objects.
But if a player does not appear, that equipment is built into the crowd. And if he's been sitting all over the season, just like LeVan Bell works in Pittsburgh, this bundle of equipment and clothes becomes a fair game.

Steelers cleared the Bell's locker on Wednesday, the day after the deadline for applying for training before being disqualified from the season came and went without any appearance from a veteran tail. This means that anything else is occupied. For lanbacker Bud Dupree, this meant some new sliders.
"I appreciate what my man is saying, you know what I'm saying," Dupri told Jeremi Fowler from the ESPN. "I hope for you best, but I take all this right away."
They are not just fast games that went fast, although they were popular players and a good bonus for the players in the team. Some of Bell's remaining personal items went into the mix.
Updates: multiple large boxes are removed, each with dozens of pairs of shells in them.
"You need shoes," the reporter told the player.
In the team's wardrobe, there are now two full shoe poles with "26" sewn on the back.

But while the team might have been frustrated at Bell's failure to apply, Fowler announced that the attack on his old cabinet was "more playful than malicious."
It's just the next step on Steelers's trip outside Bell
Bell declined to play under the franchise mark this autumn, losing $ 14.54 million in pay, to stay healthy looking for a long-term contract with a high guaranteed money in 2019. Although this kept the former All-Pro from the Pittsburgh line, the appearance of the second windmill James Conner relieved the pain of losing Bell. Konner is currently second in the NFL with 771 courts and has 39 entries in nine games.
This made Steelers eager to put Bell's elevation in their rear view.
"You know what he's not here, he will not be here, so we're not talking about it," said Thursday Ben Roethlisberger on Wednesday afternoon. "I sent him yesterday by the end of the term, saying that I hope he will show up, and if he decides I do not want him the best." He was a great guy from the team, a great footballer. They are their everybody on what basis they want to leave. "
Pittsburgh finally received a certain closure in the Bell situation when he failed to submit the report by November 13th. The switching of former All-Pro stuff goes somewhere close to the "acceptance" phase of the Kubler-Ross model.
Now the question arises as to whether any of the members of the team line could fit into any of Bell's old equipment or if Steelers' mates stayed at their last moment by their former team mate.
