Well, at least there are no concerns about lack of chemistry in the Pittsburgh Steelers' running backs meeting room.

Top two tailbacks Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were hanging out together after hours on Wednesday. A little bonding experience. The only problem was they had 20 grams of marijuana when they were pulled over by police, according to CBS Pittsburgh columnist Colin Dunlap. The backs were charged with possession of marijuana and as a bonus, Bell was charged with a DUI. An unidentified female with the two was also charged, Dunlap said.

That's not good. Though, given the appeals process if commissioner Roger Goodell wants to punish Bell and Blount, it's unlikely it would affect either for the 2014 season.

Blount has been in trouble before. In college at Oregon, he was suspended for most of the 2009 season after punching a Boise State player after a game. Despite being very talented, he went undrafted in 2010. Bell was the team's second-round pick a year ago and was looking to build off a solid rookie season as the Steelers' starter, with Blount signed from New England this offseason to be a powerful No. 2 option.

The Steelers usually don't take kindly to off-field issues, so it will be interesting to see if they take any action against their top two backs.
