Le’Veon Bell Opens Up About Contract Holdout With Bizarre Tweets

Le’Veon Bell Opens Up About Contract Holdout With Bizarre Tweets

Bell said the Steelers told him they plan to place the transition tag on him this offseason, and a source confirmed to ESPN that the tag would be worth approximately $9 million to $10 million.

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.

If you've been paying attention to the Le'Veon Bell situation, then you may have noticed that there seems to be at least one new twist every day.

Talking Point: What is causing Pochettino's Spurs blues?
His thoughts did not change after the match, labelling the pitch "s***', but Kane felt it played no role in Spurs " victory. Striker Kane finally levelled the contest when he fired home after being teed up by substitute Fernando Llorente .

It feels as though a change of scenery is what's best for Bell at this point, but an interested team clearly must be willing to open up its wallet pretty wide. He needs three games at full pay to have the season credited.

The Athletic reported a month ago that Bell would qualify as a third franchise tag even if he didn't show by the deadline. If the Steelers did decide to go that route, it would be even more costly than normal.

Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports there's a "real possibility" Bell will simply let next Tuesday's deadline to sign the franchise tag pass and sit out the season. According to's Tom Pelissero that salary would be more than $25 million next season. Either option would allow Bell to seek a deal from another team which is what he has been seeking all along.

If you needed another update on where Pittsburgh Steelers running back is, we've got it for you. However, instead of sending a normal tweet to rip his critics, Bell made a decision to write his message using upside-down letters. Without Bell, the Steelers have started their 2018 season 5-2-1 as replacement running back James Connor has racked up 706 rushing yards and nine touchdowns, which are both the second-highest totals in the league.

It was indeed Bell and he is indeed back in Pittsburgh.
