Tensions are brewing between Le’Veon Bell and teammates

  • ‘One Person Doesn’t Make Or Break You:’ Steelers Prepare For Week One Without Le’Veon Bell

Roethlisberger was hopeful that Bell would show up to practice Wednesday.

Conner went through a Bell-like slim-down after his rookie season, which was cut short by a knee injury (torn MCL).

What started as a game of (franchise) tag by the Steelers has turned into a stare down with one of their superstars, one that could last longer than any of us ever imagined.

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. "Here's a guy who doesn't give a damn", guard Ramon Foster said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. We'd like [Bell] out there, but we've got guys who can make plays for us. "I just hate it came to this. He's making seven times what I make and twice as much as (left tackle) Al (Villanueva) is making and we're the guys who do it for him".

Tell us how you really feel.

That time came and passed.

They're not real happy about it, either... Bakari said he wanted to know what GM Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin's plan would be for Bell this year.

"I played for a tough sucker, and I was afraid of him, and we played our ass off for him because we feared him", Bradshaw said on San Diego radio, speaking of Chuck Noll. Why let your agent say this?

"Just the way that when he speaks and commands the room, you can tell the passion he has for his players, you respect that a ton", says Burnett, who signed a thee-year deal in Pittsburgh this spring after spending his first eight years in Green Bay. "It's kind of weird".

He signed a four-year contract worth $4.1 million (£3.1m) in June 2013 and later had a franchise tag placed on him by the Pittsburgh Steelers in February 2017. It seems like Bell made it sound like he'd be back this week though. We'll move on as a team. Will a team such as the New York Jets try to swoop in and trade for Bell with tensions seemingly at an all-time high?

Bell's chair remained tucked neatly into his locker on Wednesday, meaning he will nearly certainly not be available when the Steelers open the season in Cleveland this weekend.

Samuels was one of the most dynamic receiving backs going into the 2018 draft, where the Steelers took him in the fifth round a year after taking Conner in the third.
