NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers" running back Le"Veon Bell jokingly tweeted during his preseason contract holdout that he might have to apply for a job at Dairy Queen.

On Tuesday, Dairy Queen obliged.

Bell spent some time at the chain"s New Kensington store - about 20 miles (32.2 kilometers) northeast of Pittsburgh - learning how to make Blizzards and other treats.

Bell says his one-day gig was ""harder than I thought it was going to be"" and that he doesn"t think ""this job is any easier than my job, and I don"t think my job is any easier than their job.""

Jared Abraham, who co-owns the store, says Dairy Queen reached out to Bell after his tweet. Abraham says, ""As excited as we were to have him, he seemed just as excited.""
