Steelers trying to trade Bell; would 49ers look?

Grant SmithOct 01, 2018

"The Philadelphia Eagles are among the teams with interest in Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, league sources said, and while no trades are close or imminent, and there would be obstacles to overcome, Howie Roseman is among the more aggressive and creative general managers in the NFL", La Canfora said.

With just over a month to go before the NFL trade deadline, the Steelers are contacting teams and actively shopping Bell, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Furthermore, the Steelers would receive a future compensatory third-round pick if they let Bell walk away as a free agent, so their asking price is unlikely to come down much.

The Steelers' position on Le'Veon Bell appears to be pivoting.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that the Steelers have not received any serious offers as yet for Bell. The Steelers have reaffirmed their decision countless times, claiming that one man does not make a team. And the Seahawks offence is in desperate need of an impact running back to help take the defensive focus off quarterback Russell Wilson.

It appears to be anyone's guess as to where Bell is going to be playing moving forward. Bell, while one of the NFL's best running backs, would be a one-year rental, and there's no guarantee he'd want to re-sign with the 49ers, who couldn't negotiate with him until after the season ends.

The Steelers used the franchise tag on Bell for the second straight season, which would pay him $14.5 million.
