Player Notes
Feb 15 12:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers have been in talks about a potential long-term contract and general manager Kevin Colbert is optimistic that a deal will come to fruition. Colbert said Pittsburgh wants to keep Bell for the rest of his career if possible, but using the franchise tag on Bell again has not been ruled out.

Feb 15 11:00am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is a pending free agent, but Steelers GM Kevin Colbert told Bell thatthe organization has a "strong desire" to keep him in Pittsburgh the rest of his career. Colbert added the franchise tag is an option, but their goal is a long-term deal. The two sides did not seem particularly close to a deal last year, but Colbert said the situation is different this time around and they are opening negotiations with a clean slate. The deadline to apply the franchise tag is March 6, but the two sides can continue to negotiate a long-term deal even if the Steelers use the tag.

Feb 7 3:50pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney said that the team would "like to have a long-term contract with Le'Veon Bell" this year. Bell is an impending free agent, but the Steelers would likely place the franchise tag on him again if they can't work out a long-term contract. Both sides are more optimistic than they were last year that something will get done. It'd be a shock if Bell were playing for another team in 2018. Given his ability as a passer out of the backfield, he's one of the most dynamic players in the NFL and will probably be the favorite for the No. 1 fantasy pick this year.

Feb 3 5:13pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell said at this point he plans to be at training camp on time next season.

Feb 2 5:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell said the guaranteed money is the most important thing for him in negotiations with the Steelers.

Feb 2 4:40pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent running back Le'Veon Bell spoke confidently Friday about the potential of reaching a long-term contract with the team, and the two sides are closer than they were to a deal than last year. Bell said a multi-year deal is about the guaranteed money. Last year, he turned down a deal that would have paid him $30 million in the first two years of the deal. Slapping the franchise tag on Bell for the second straight year would cost Pittsburgh around $14.5 million. One way or another, we'd expect Pittsburgh to get something done with Bell to keep him around. As versatile a running back as ever, Bell is an elite RB1 and should once again be in consideration for the No. 1 overall fantasy pick in 2018.

Feb 2 1:13pm ET

Impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell (Steelers) was asked on Twitter if he would sign with the New York Jets for $60 million, and Bell's response was, 'that ain't enough to come run with the Jets...' For perspective, Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman's five-year, $41.25 million extension made him the highest-paid back in football.

Jan 25 5:53pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said the Steelers have set an artificial deadline for the two sides to reach a long-term agreement. The Steelers would like an agreement before Feb. 20, which is the first day that teams can place the franchise tag on a player. Bell said the two sides could continue to negotiate after that date if nothing is agreed to in the next few weeks.

Jan 24 1:23pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell has already been given a contract extension offer. Bell said both parties are a lot closer than last year's extension efforts.

Jan 24 12:30pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell said he and the Steelers are in active contract talks and are "a lot closer" than they were last year. Bell turned down an extension last year that would have guaranteed him $30 million over the first two years of the deal and paid around $12 million annually, which would have easily made him the league's highest-paid back. He played 2017 on the $12.1 million franchise tag. This year, the tag would cost around $14.5 million. Bell, 26, will likely be the highest paid back in football and will get paid, from the Steelers or in free agency.

Jan 23 7:40am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell could become a free agent and MMQB's Peter King expects impending Bell to "go to the highest bidder" and names the Raiders as a team to "watch" in his free agency. The new staff in Oakland has been mum when it comes to Marshawn Lynch's future with the team, so Beast Mode could very well be one-and-done for his hometown Raiders. Oakland could use that money to go after a younger stallion like Bell, but he will have no shortage of suitors should he reach the open market. It is going to be tough for the Steelers to use the franchise tag on Bell again this year since they have very little cap room at the moment. However, creating cap space is a relatively simple task.

Jan 23 12:03am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell could be a target for the Oakland Raiders, according to The MMQB's Peter King.

Jan 20 2:50pm ET

According to several reports, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell missed almost the entire walkthrough the day before his team lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Bell didn't arrive at the walkthrough until about five minutes before it was scheduled to end. The report went on to state that while players were expected to be in the locker room for the Sunday game two hours early, Bell didn't arrive until "much later" than that. Bell is a free agent this offseason and sat out all of the 2017 training camp due to unhappniess over the lack of a longterm deal with the team. There's a real chance he's wearing a different uniform in 2018.

Jan 19 9:53am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell showed up five minutes before the walkthrough ended Saturday, Jan. 13, before the Steelers were beaten by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He and a coach were also late to report to the stadium before the game.

Jan 16 1:05pm ET

Steelers' RB Le'Veon Bell scored an impressive 36.50 fantasy points in Sunday's playoff loss against the Jaguars. Bell ran for 67 yards and caught nine passes for 88 yards with two touchdowns. Bell scored at least 25 fantasy points six times during the regular season.

Jan 16 4:33am ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell said he 'of course' would want to remain in Pittsburgh next season and that he would 'never want to leave this city,' but 'circumstances and things like that' would be the reason if he doesn't continue his tenure with the Steelers in 2018.

Jan 15 4:30pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell told reporters on Sunday that he wanted to stay in Pittsburgh but that circumstances may prevent that from happening. When asked about whether he wants to stay in Pittsburgh, Bell responded, "Of course. I never want to leave this city, but obviously, circumstances and things like that. But I definitely don't." He went on to say that he thinks the Steelers have the right group of guys to make a run in the playoffs in 2018, although he wouldn't elaborate when asked whether he was part of that group. Bell is a free agent this offseason and has previously stated that he would rather retire than be franchised by the Steelers again. There are already reports out that Pittsburgh plans to disregard Bell's wishes and place the franchise tag designation on their All-Pro running back this offseason. Bell sat out this past preseason to show his displeasure with the organization for not offering him a long-term deal and appears prepared to battle with them over his contract yet again this offseason.

Jan 14 9:20pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell turned in a huge performance in his team's 45-42 playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round. Bell carried the ball 16 times for 62 yards while adding nine receptions for 88 yards. The star running back also scored two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving. Bell's touchdown reception was a 19-yard grab down the right sideline in the third quarter while his rushing score came on a lateral from Ben Roethlisberger. Bell will be a free agent this offseason but the Steelers are expected to place the franchise tag on him. Things could get interesting as Bell told a reporter last week that he would consider retirement if the team franchises him again.

Jan 14 4:43pm ET

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rushed for 67 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Jan. 14. He also caught nine passes for 88 yards and one touchdown during the game.

Jan 14 1:20pm ET

According to a report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to place the franchise tag on running back Le'Veon Bell this offseason. Bell wouldn't be happy if that were to happen, as he told ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler last week that he would retire if the Steelers franchised him in the offseason. Bell, of course, sat out all of this past preseason due to unhappiness stemming from the lack of a long-term contract between him and the team. This could be an interesting development once the offseason begins for Pittsburgh.
