Le'Veon Bell Reports to Steelers After Holding out over Contract Dispute

Share

Le'Veon Bell was back at the Steelers facility on Friday and his return to the team means there's no need for them to keep all the running backs they had in camp this summer. Upon returning, Bell is expected to sign his franchise tender with just over one week before the start of the regular season.

Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network first reported news of Bell's arrival.

The former Michigan State running back held out of the preseason in hopes of getting a long-term extension with the Steelers.

However, Bell ultimately made a decision to table discussions because he was seeking a deal that could help reset the running back market.

Bell hasn't signed his franchise tender and has been holding out through training camp. But the Steelers could not fine Bell for missing practices since he was not under contract, and Bell took advantage of the arrangement. The question at that time will be whether Pittsburgh will pony up to Bell's high demands, tag him again (which could lead to another standoff) at around $14.5 million, or let him hit the open market.

Still, Bell is seeking a contract that will pay him like both an elite running back and a No. 2 wide receiver after finishing second on the Steelers in receiving in two of the last three years. That deadline-date offer was a five-year deal and reportedly would have paid Bell more than any running back in the National Football League, including guaranteed him at least $37 million in the first three years of the deal.
