Pittsburgh Steelers Beat Writer Offers Major Le’Veon Bell Update

Grant SmithNov 09, 2018

Le'Veon Bell is back in Pittsburgh.

Bell, who's been absent from the Pittsburgh Steelers for the entirety of the campaign amid a contract holdout, has until Tuesday to report to the team facilities or else he'll forfeit the season.

But Bell might not receive the warmest welcome if he chooses to reunite with his team this month. Pittsburgh resident John Maus, who posted a video of Bell on his Snapchat story, said the subject in his video is "110 percent Le'Veon" and his video was shot live. Bell has sat out the first nine weeks of the regular season and has not signed his franchise tender for the season.

What that would mean is that in order to tag him next year as a franchise player, the Steelers would have to commit to paying Bell $25 million in guaranteed money.

Reports from earlier in the season suggested Bell needed to sign with the team by November 13 if he wanted to retain his free agent eligibility following the season.

That number is high enough that the team would likely either release Bell into free agency or place the transition tag on him.

"Just about everybody has an opinion on my life & anxious about what I'm doing", Bell wrote. Also, if you're really finding the time to figure out what I'm saying, you've proved my point.

He played under a franchise tag in 2017, earning $12.12 million after turning down a five-year, $13.3-million-per offer. Bell already has played the four-plus seasons he needs to become a free agent after the season.

Apparently Bell was previously unaware that he could not report in 2018 and still have the franchise tag count as his second tag out of three.
