Le'Veon Bell's Steelers Teammates Are Fed Up With His Hold Out

Bell only needs to return then to accrue a full season and become a free agent next year. In the meantime, Pittsburgh, with legitimate Super Bowl aspirations, will have to press forward without their star back as he looks to get paid.

But the frustration has now leaked into the locker room to the point where players now appear to be on management's side - or at least they're not respecting the way Bell is going about his holdout, seemingly leaving many of them in the dark on his plans. He has still not signed his $14.5m franchise tag.

After taking his shots at Bell through the media today, offensive guard Ramon Foster took to Twitter to give his true impression of Bell's character.

A source told ESPN that the Steelers have no plans to rescind Bell's tender, and league sources say a trade would be hard to execute because of Bell's position and teams' unwillingness to inherit a franchise-tagged player.

"If Adisa (Bakari) would like to talk further, he has the phone number to our offices". Bell will have to play under the franchise tag for a second season on a one-year, $14.54 million contract after he was unable to reach a long-term deal with the team before the July 16 deadline.

For each week he misses, Bell will lose $852,941. "We are the Steelers. They had one of the best players to play the position and they used him heavily for the production he can provide, but in doing so you take away from his future years".

The Steelers open the regular season on Sunday against the Browns.

Telling 93.7 the on Tuesday, "A lot of people expected him here yesterday, people were hoping, thinking, but we went about our business, we hope he's here tomorrow".
