Le'Veon Bell ending Steelers madness with return date

  • Le’Veon Bell ending Steelers madness with return date

One of the many problems, however, is that Bell can not negotiate a new deal, which makes him harder to trade to another team and creates major problems for the Steelers and Bell to make amends.

"It sucks having to sit out football", Bell said by telephone from South Florida on Monday.

Bell told ESPN that he still hopes to play with the Steelers beyond this season.

"But I've gotta take this stand".

Thomas' injury highlighted the reason Bell has not reported to work and already left more than $3.4 million on the table by not signing his $14.54 million franchise tender - Bell would make $855,000 per game if he signs the franchise tag.




The club is seeking at least a second-round draft pick plus a "good" player in return, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Steelers would be interested in trading Bell to the Seattle Seahawks for their own disgruntled star player, Earl Thomas.

Bell, though, told Fowler that he didn't find it "logical" that a team would give such a bounty "potentially for someone who could play six games with no guarantee of a long-term deal".

Bell wrote. "I'll continue to be the "bad guy" for ALL of us". But the most interesting thing he said might have been that he still wants to retire a Steeler. "A lot of people call me selfish but I'm really not". He tallied 1291 yards and nine rushing touchdowns. Bell was referencing his ongoing holdout, the perception of which might have changed in light of Thomas' decision to end his holdout, return to the field and suffer a leg fracture in Week 4 that likely will end his season. It was a little disappointing, but I understand their side.
