I still wouldn't be surprised if he does or doesnt show. The media has proven to be very unreliable with this story.

Everything I have read says there has been zero communication between Bell and the team....and thats why they think he is sitting out the season.

That reasoning doesnt seem all that definitive to me.

One story said he was expected to sign. There was no reasoning given other than that he was in town. Another story said he was not expected to sign. There was no reasoning other than he has given no indication that he would. I have never seen a story like this where reporters just keep making things up.

From my perspective Bell came to Pittsburgh last week with the intent to sign.  Then he and his agent learned that Bell will be guaranteed over $25 million (the top 5 salaries in the NFL including quarterbacks) for the Steelers to tag him again.

 

At this point it doesn't make any sense for Le'veon to risk playing this season for what he'd make compared to what he will make next season.

 

At least we are near the end of wondering if he will suit up as a Steeler this year if he doesn't sign by Tuesday Nov 13.

But doesn't he have to officially sign a second franchise deal (this year) for next year to count as his 3rd franchise deal (and the $25M)??

That was the narrative until recently when a report came out stating that he didn't need to sign for the franchise tag to go up to 25 million. I believe Tom Pelisero was the reporter

Ian Rapoport in reporting on the NFL Network today that the Steelers do not expect Bell to sign by tomorrow because Bell now knows that this season counts as an accrued season under the franchise tag.

 

Also, Bell deleted the Pittsburgh Steelers from his twitter bio last week.

 

Looks like this thread will hold on for another 4 months.

If he really didn't know all of the contract details from the beginning he needs to fire his agent asap. There are millions on the line and you are getting info from reporters?
