Mike Tomlin Confronted Reggie Nelson, Possibly Due To Low Hit on Le’Veon Bell (Video)

Mike Tomlin confronted Reggie Bell

After the Steelers clenched the AFC North, Mike Tomlin confronted Reggie Nelson during post-game handshakes regarding…something.

Common sense would dictate that Mike Tomlin wasn’t too keen on Nelson’s low hit on Pittsburgh RB Le’Veon Bell. However, that wasn’t the reason that Mike Tomlin confronted Reggie Nelson, at least not according to the head coach.
