Steelers' Bell doesn't report, will sit season

Le'Veon Bell

Ben Roethlisberger has no hard feelings towards Le'Veon Bell, though the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback did not hear back from the running back when he text him after he failed to report by Tuesday's deadline. "He was a great teammate, a great football player".

That's where the insight on Bell stopped, as Roethlisberger made it clear that he wanted to move on from the conversation.

The Steelers will have the option to designate Bell as their franchise player again this offseason, but the one-year salary tied to Bell's third straight franchise tag is expected to exceed $25 million, something experts believe Pittsburgh won't even entertain.

"To each their own.what they want to walk away from".

Bell recorded 5,336 yards and 35 touchdowns on 1,229 rushing attempts, as well as 312 receptions for 2,660 yards and seven touchdowns during his six seasons in Pittsburgh.

He had 26 points and his season high of 12 rebounds in a 128-119 loss at Portland in the season opener on October 18. Walton said he wasn't certain of how Rondo suffered the injury or the exact nature of it.

With Bell's career in Pittsburgh nearly certainly over, it appears his teammates have moved on as well. According to multiple reports, they took his nameplate off his stall and divided up items they found in the locker.

Bud Dupree was seen on video taking some of Bell's Jordan cleats.

Before practice, Roethlisberger told reporters he couldn't imagine sitting out a entire season like Bell has in his pursuit for a long-term contract.

"Appreciate the cleats my guy, appreciate the cleats, wish you the best", Dupree said as he tried on the shoes. "Part of the great thing about this sport is this band of brothers, this group of guys in here". "That's what keeps me coming back after so many years".
