Le'Veon Bell took to Twitter Thursday to congratulate general manager Kevin Colbert on his two year extension.
Bell, who hasn't signed his franchise tender, skipped training camp but has said he plans to report to the team Friday.
He recently took to Twitter to respond to teammates Antonio Brown and Bud Dupree through a rap. Brown and Dupree previously expressed their desire to see Bell at camp earlier than Friday.
Colbert, 60, joined the Steelers in 2000 as director of football operations -- a position he held for 11 years before becoming general manager.
During his time with the franchise, the Steelers have won two Super Bowls and three AFC titles. The Steelers have also won their division eight times and earned 11 playoff berths.
"I have been very fortunate to have been a part of this organization over the last 17 years," Colbert said in the statement. "I am very thankful for the opportunity to continue to be a part of our annual pursuit of a championship."
