Pittsburgh Steelers roundtable: Thoughts on Le’Veon Bell’s absence

Steelers set to begin Wednesday meetings minus Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers teammates had remained quietly supportive of Le'Veon Bell and his contract standoff with the team for a long time.

Even if the team enters the season without its All-Pro running back, the Pittsburgh Steelers are not planning to change their position in the ongoing standoff with Le'Veon Bell.

"What do you do?" "I just hate it came to this". "He's making seven times what I make, twice as much as Al (Villanueva) is making and we're the guys that do it for him".

Bell has not stepped foot in the Steelers' facilities in nearly eight months. Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has made it no secret that he wants to face, and sack, Roethlisberger, after not getting the opportunity to play against him past year. Bell's agent Adisa Bakari was interviewed on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday and hinted at a concern Bell would be overworked this season by the Steelers, which could affect his earning potential when Bell reaches the open market in 2019. But if Bell signs his current tag at any time prior to November 13, the Steelers would have to either tag him a third time at a hefty price tag next offseason or let him hit free agency.

Sessions' job is safe until at least midterms, Trump says
In the interview, Trump gave a token indication Sessions' fate wasn't sealed. "I think the immigration issue was poorly handled". He charged that Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".

Drawing from my own NFL experiences and assessing Bell's current standing in this league, I think the three-time Pro Bowler has earned the right to receive a big payday - and sitting out until November 13 gives him the best opportunity to do that as a free agent next March.

"You could just tell he takes care of his players", Haden says.

According to sources at ESPN, the NFL Network and elsewhere, many Steelers players have expressed frustration at Bell's continued holding out as the team's first game of the season is mere days away. Why let your agent say this? "Just man up and tell us what you're going to do".

How does Le'Veon Bell make his money?

Trump says Sessions’ DOJ has placed GOP in midterm jeopardy
Mr Trump suggested Mr Sessions could lose his job in July past year when he said "time will tell" what happens to him. The Dems all hated him, wanted him out, thought he was disgusting - UNTIL I FIRED HIM! Trump's second tweet is a lie.

Bell also skipped the entirety of training camp last season, but reported for duty on September 1st and played Week 1. But when he still didn't show up, their patience ran out. "We'll worry about him in Week 2", Pouncey said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Tim Benz.

Bell forfeits $852,941 for every week he misses.

Bell rushed for 1,291 yards (third in the NFL) on 321 carries with nine TDs, in addition to 85 receptions (2nd most on Steelers) for 655 yards and two scores last season. This team needs to be on the same page but we are still forced to talk about non football issues and not the Cleveland Browns.
