Le'Veon Bell unsure about Steelers future

13 January 2018

Bell rushed for 1,291 yards on 321 carries this season and also caught 85 passes for 655 yards. A second tag for next season would be worth a projected $14.5 million.

"I hope it doesn't come to that, but I would definitely consider it", Bell said before practice for this weekend's playoff game against Jacksonville, according to the report. He scored 11 touchdowns - nine rushing, two receiving. But for the Steelers it could net them more now than it would letting him walk as a free agent this offseason and possibly earning a compensatory pick (likely a third-rounder) in 2019.

Bell said he'd "probably be done" playing football if he sat out the entire season. Bell has wanted a massive contract, citing the desire to help all running backs in an era that has devalued the position. "I know what I do and what I bring to the table". I'm not going to settle for anything. "I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at". If Bell did sit out 2018 if he's tagged again, he'd be turning down a deal that far surpasses what any other back will be getting. That being said, it's odd to hear this come out before the Steelers' first playoff game of the season. "If I was a free agent and they let me go, be a free agent, then yeah, I'm going to go explore free agency, test the market".

"I've made a lot of money, I'm happy where I'm at, I've got a good family - I don't really need to play football", Bell said. "Right now, I'm just kind of doing it because I love it". But that's exactly what they have following Le'Veon Bell's comments Thursday about his future with the team. Perhaps it was his way of trying to show how committed he is to wanting to stay in Pittsburgh for the long-haul and win it all this year.

Well, after a career full of highlight reels and plenty of talent left in the tank, Bell is looking for money.
