Yeah, but he was trying to make a point with the holdout and it backfired. 

 

It sure did backfire. If he gets hurt now kiss that big contract goodbye. If he was smart he'd sit out the entire season and sign with someone else. There's now way the Steelers will pay that 3 year tag.

Rappoport says the Steelers really want Bell back? Seriously? 

 

Conner currently leads the AFC in rushing.  He's not as great a receiver as Bell, but Conner is doing fine.

 

 

 

Couple weeks ago he reported that the Patriots were punishing Gordon for being late to meetings and sitting him, we need to stop believing this guy.

 

A statement from the Rooneys that they believe he is returning is at least a real source.

I will say that adding Bell to that already potent offense, will make them better, like Ingram and Kamara.

Agree. That would be insane.

I don't believe Rooney knows anymore than me or you. His comments read like wishful thinking.

No doubt. There's been absolutely no communication between then parties. Only Leveon knows.

are we sure he can't play this season if he doesn't show up by tuesday?

Some of us (me!) thought he had to play six games for him to be UFA or at least the tag escalate to the 3rd season ($20+million?) and that, APPARENTLY, turned out to be incorrect.

so maybe this info is wrong too?

He's not eligible for the 2018 season if he doesn't report by Tuesday. They can still franchise tag him next year but they won"t, they can't afford a 3rd tag. They have Conner on a rookie deal so it would make no sense. Anyway you slice it he's a free agent next season. The Steelers would get a 3rd round pick as compensation.

My best guesses.

 

Play 6 games (or injured and/or injury settlement) for a year credit towards retirement benefits and a good contract year.

Plenty of players sign contracts with a few games left in the year, just not fully creditable. 

A tag is a designation, not needing a creditable year. Independent of games played. 

Dont sign the tag / tender means not under contract. 

Compensatory pick will be in a formula based upon number of players lost / brought in, and the $ / years of contracts signed on the incoming/outgoing players.

Schefter reported Bell isn’t expected to show up before the deadline on Tuesday. Time to drop him if you have him. 

 

Not in keeper or dynasty ;)
