  • Hahahahahaaha What an idiot! How do people come up with these idiotic ideas of overvaluing themselves and believing that he can beat the (NFL) system? Does he even have an agent? Is the agent just as stupid? I wouldn't sign with Bell's agent for anything.


    Le’Veon Bell has now forfeited $6.84M from his 8 weeks away from the 1st place Steelers.

    Not including signing bonuses, no active RB will earn that much in 2018.

    L. McCoy: $6.3M
    L. Miller: $5.75M
    L. Murray: $4.6M

    James Conner is giving them twice the production at half the cost.

    Conner's base salary this year is $578,000 for the entire season, which is slightly less than the $855,000 per WEEK that Bell will make once he signs his franchise tag.

  • What exactly is he trying to accomplish? I assume just doing the Joey Galloway thing and play as little as possible this season? And then next year assume he won't be tagged again and can hit the open market?

    I guess there's the injury risk he's protecting himself from but that's an awful lot if money to give up to protect yourself. Just take out an insurance policy.

  • He's doing everything he can to insure he stays healthy before he hits the open market. The problem is Conner has been even better the Bell has the last couple of years. It would be funny if he actually got less money because people will now think it's just a system and not so much the running back. It will be interesting to see what the Steelers do when he gets back.

  • Steelers should pull the franchise tag offer and let him whither away to prove that no player will dictate an NFL team.

  • I'm not sure on any stats for this, but it just seems like coming back for the last few weeks could increase his injury risk. I dunno.

    Seems like we have seen this rodeo before ourselves. Come back and lo and behold...they get injured the second game. I am not sure about the article as I did not read it, but was told online or somewhere that he signs his tender and gets it all in one chunk???? I dunno tho. Sorry, just thought I heard it somewhere on one of the sites.

  • Bell lost all leverage after Conners' first game. He/his agent are idiots.

  • Not expected to report in time to toll a season. Don't get it. Does his tag number still go up if he never signs this one?

  • Bell: idiot or genius? The way I understand it, he & his agent discovered a loophole in the CBA. If he sits out this entire season, the Steelers have the right to tag him again next year, but this time the tag would have him making top QUARTERBACK MONEY. Obviously, Pitt is not going to do that & he will essentially become an UFA. Yes, Bell lost out on a lot of $ this year, but he protected himself and I’m sure there will be teams with a lot of cap room throwing insane figures his way.

  • He has already turned down more money than anyone will ever offer him again so I wouldn’t call him a genius. He is on record several times demanding 15 million per year 5 years and he turned down a deal that would have paid 43 over three years and 20 the final two years of a five year extension. My question is what is the cost to the Steelers for a guy who refuses to show up? What are the Steelers obligations and impact on their cap?

  • Teams are going to low ball him on the next round of free agency. They will say he has no desire to play football and will quit on his team. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

  • Kirk Cousins beat the system like a red headed step child by signing the Franchise tags.

    He played every season at a position that is overvalued. He knew the market Bell not so much.
