Le'Veon Bell shoots his shot at SZA

The Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro back has a jones for the rising R&B superstar, and for a long-term deal - even if it's not with his current team.

TMZ Sports caught up with (as of now) Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Ball evidently has a celebrity crush -- on rising star and R&B singer SZA.

Coming out of the club 1Oak in Los Angeles, the all-purpose back took a moment to mention who he'd like to be his Valentine for 2018. 

He wasn't shy about expressing his fandom of her 'artistry,' calling her his "favorite."

Tell SZA to come see me. I listen to her music all the time. She's my favorite. If I get her for Valentine's Day, she can get whatever she wants.

Bell has a more pressing situation at hand, in his perhaps impending free agency.

The back reportedly hasn't been pleased with the progress of a long-term deal that Steelers owner Art Rooney II has publicly expressed desire in getting done over the next few weeks.

He would be highly-sought after if the Steelers allow him to walk. The team could use the franchise tag on him - which he claims could cause him to sit out the season.

Giants star receiver Odell Beckham has been openly recruiting Bell, even making an Instagram post calling the All-Pro the "newest member" of the New York Giants. 

Beckham even told Bell to change his handle, previously @steelersb26, to the current @leveonbell.
