Steelers' Bell doesn't report, will sit season

Ben Roethlisberger greeted with silence after texting Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did his best to keep communication lines open with running back Le'Veon Bell.

By not signing the $14.5 million tender, his second in two years, Bell will not accrue an National Football League season and is expected to end his tenure with the team that drafted him in the second round of the 2013 draft. The Steelers are unlikely to tag him for a third consecutive year, which would cost more than $20 million, but some reports have said they plan to use the transition tag, which would cost around $10 million while allowing Pittsburgh to match any offer Bell gets from another team.

Bell will not return to the Steelers this season after failing to report and will become an unrestricted free agent this winter- which left his locker stuffed with goodies to raid.


Bud Dupree was seen on video taking some of Bell's Jordan cleats.

The Steelers confirmed Bell's absence, which ruled him ineligible to play the remainder of the season, as general manager Kevin Colbert released a statement on the matter Tuesday afternoon.

Taking the financial implications out of it, Roethlisberger said it would be hard for him to sit out a season, particularly in the prime of his career. "Part of the great thing about this sport is this band of brothers, this group of guys in here". To each his own, each guy has their own motives and motivations. "I am glad that we don't have to talk about this anymore".
