You just knew leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers wasn't easy for running back James Conner. He loves the city and Pennsylvania as a whole. Well, despite that, Conner is headed to the Arizona Cardinals, as he's reached a new deal with the team.
Conner is all set to join an offense that already features guys like DeAndre Hopkins and Kyler Murray. Watch out, NFC West. While Conner is jacked up, he made it clear how tough his move out of Pittsburgh is on Twitter.
If you're a Steelers fan and you're getting emotional seeing that tweet, we don't blame you. Conner grew up in Pennsylvania, was a standout in college for the Pitt Panthers and then was drafted by the Steelers. He also battled cancer as a youngster.
Now, he's all set to head to Arizona to begin his career with the Cardinals. While he's excited for his new journey, Conner won't forget about Pittsburgh and everything the city has done for him.
