Report: Le’Veon Bell unlikely to show up by Tuesday deadline, to sit out rest of the season

The Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly want Bell back, but Bell is willing to wait until free agency next year before he steps foot on a football field.

Le’Veon Bell has been in a holding pattern the entire 2018 season.

Every step in this process, the Steelers have been wondering what their All-Pro running back was going to do. While the Steelers knew they wouldn’t see Bell during offseason workouts, or even training camp, once Week 1 rolled around and Bell was an absentee…the real waiting began.

As players were asked incessantly about Bell’s whereabouts, week by week Bell left $855 thousand dollars on the table weekly.

Rumors were Bell would report during the team’s Week 7 bye week.

Nope.

Some thought when he bid farewell to Miami via Twitter, he was heading to the Steel City.

Well, he showed up, but just to play some pick up basketball at an LA Fitness.

It now came to the point where either Bell reports before Tuesday leading up to Week 11, or he is forced to sit out the entire season, this per the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between the NFLPA and the NFL owners.

Most assume with Bell in the area, he will be showing up on Monday, or Tuesday, to get back on the field and possibly do some damage before hitting free agency next offseason.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, this isn’t likely to happen:

Schefter wasn’t the only NFL insider to have some sources, possibly the same ones, say how Bell isn’t going to be showing this season.

This from the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:

The comments Rapoport is referring to by Art Rooney II would be comments he made to the NFL Network radio station on Sirius/XM Radio prior to the team’s Week 10 game vs. the Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football. During the interview Rooney spoke about how the team fully expects Bell to return for the stretch run, and according to Rapoport the team wants Bell back, but Bell doesn’t reciprocate those feelings.

This could just be another rumor in this sordid timeline, or it could be the truth. Either way, fans will know soon enough whether Bell will be a part of this 2018 team, or if they will be moving forward with a backfield of James Conner, Stevan Ridley and Jaylen Samuels.

Bulldogs and Babies

The English Bulldog is a loving and gentle dog that makes a great family pet. Bulldogs seem to have a sixth sense about children, they are gentle, have a very high tolerance level and make great playmates.  The bulldog will instinctively and instantly become one of the family. Many people including myself believe that they don’t consider themselves Dogs but more human like the rest of the family members. A clown, a great listener, a friend, a four legged family member. The Bulldog is a true Family Dog for children of any age, the bulldog makes the perfect pet, being Loving and Loyal to all family members.
