Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has watched as a conference rival picked up one of his former stars, and he has some thoughts on it.

On Tuesday, Tomlin offered a reaction to Le’Veon Bell joining the New York Jets that some will see as funny and others will interpret as shade. Let’s just say Tomlin took notice of Bell’s paycheck.

Bell, of course, is getting paid that much because the Steelers wouldn’t go that far, at least in terms of guaranteed money. Tomlin certainly doesn’t seem to have a problem with the fact that they didn’t, nor does he sound all that envious of the fact that the Jets are the ones paying him the big money now.
