The Pittsburgh Steelers haven’t had Le’Veon Bell on board since last season, even though he is still technically under contract. As the team couldn’t come to an agreement with Bell about him wanting a large chunk of his money being guaranteed up front, Bell decided to take a gamble and hold out for now what has become more than half of the season. And since Bell did not sign his franchise tender before the trade deadline, he was not able to be traded away.
Bell now has until next week to return to the Steelers facility before he is no longer able to play in 2018. Although Bell did not tell anybody what his plans were, he did send out a tweet on Monday that indicated that he may be on his way back to Pittsburgh. The timing of the tweet absolutely makes sense.
Bell Going Back to Pittsburgh?
Steelers Are Still Lost
Although Le’Veon Bell told Twitter he was leaving behind his Jet Ski’s in Miami, nobody is exactly sure where the Pro Bowl running back is going. Sure, we can assume he’s headed back to Pittsburgh, but if you ask the team, they have no idea. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter claims that the team is still unaware of Bell’s plans. And quite frankly, it doesn’t seem like it matters to them much as they are getting ready for a tough matchup this week.
