Le'Veon Bell unsure about Steelers future

Le'Veon Bell unsure about Steelers future

Bell led the league in rushing with 321 rushing attempts and also caught 85 passes. A second tag for next season would be worth a projected $14.5 million.

In speaking to ESPN, Bell said, "I hope it doesn't come to that, but I would definitely consider it". He added 11 total touchdowns. So, we totally understood where Bell was coming from.

Bell's threat to retire is probably a bluff, but that doesn't mean he has no right to be exasperated at playing another season under the franchise tag (which pays a player no less than the average of the top five salaries at his position).

Bell has already voiced his frustration with not having a long-term contract by now.

The Steelers - who face the Jaguars in the Divisional Round Sunday afternoon - would have to tag Bell between February 20 and March 6, leaving them until July 16 to work out a multi-year deal. The two sides could not come together on a deal, however, and Bell ended up holding out for the entire preseason before ultimately signing his tender shortly before the season. "I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at". "I'm not going to settle for anything", Bell said. Bell held out at the start of training camp this season because he was unhappy about having to play under the franchise tag. Teams can tag a player between February 20 and March 6, after which they would have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal. "Right now, I'm just kind of doing it because I love it". As far as Roethlisberger, the two-time Super Bowl champion said on Wednesday that he is not even thinking about the possibility that the game against the Jaguars could be his last game at Heinz Field. If he gets tagged and doesn't get to test free agency, then things might get sticky.

Taking to Twitter to explain himself after the comments, Bell let the sports world know he doesn't care about next offseason, until next offseason. Perhaps it was his way of trying to show how committed he is to wanting to stay in Pittsburgh for the long-haul and win it all this year.
