Bell played for Pittsburgh from 2013-17, then sat out the 2018 season amid a contractual battle with the team.
“Looking back on this, that’s what I did,” Bell said. “When I was playing football, I smoked, bro. Even before the games, I’d smoke and I’d go out there and run for 150, two (touchdowns).”
When Bell finally left the Steelers, he played for the New York Jets in 2019 and two games in 2020.
The Jets’ coach at the time was Adam Gase, who came under criticism from Bell on the podcast.
