Le'Veon Bell Praises Christian McCaffrey, Says Fans Shouldn't Judge Him Because He's White

Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey is arguably the best at his position in the nation. In 2015, the star sophomore ran for 2,019 yards and eight touchdowns on 337 carries - averaging over six yards per rush. But many believe McCaffrey, who finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting a year ago, isn't getting his due.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, a gifted player himself, thinks that McCaffrey's status as a white running back is to blame. He took to Twitter Friday afternoon to tell fans not to judge McCaffrey for being a white runner. It's a comment that's sure to raise a few eyebrows.
