Le’Veon Bell wants to play football this season, but yet another social media post shows he isn’t willing to be a team player for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Maybe that’s aggressive. Le’Veon Bell isn’t the only one in this negotiations, and from what we’re hearing, he isn’t the reason they haven’t signed him to a long-term deal. Kind of.
Pittsburgh has the funds to meet Bell’s needs. He realistically wants something around $15 million, and the Steelers have the cap space.
But they’re holding back. This team isn’t interested in working something out right now, and no one really knows the reason. It could be that Bell isn’t being as easy going as reports say. It could also be that they aren’t as interested in keeping Bell around as long as some want.
Many believed Pittsburgh was waiting to see what the NFL Draft brought their way. After not finding a running back in the first two rounds, it started to be assumed that Bell would begin working out a deal with the team come May.
Then, he tweeted again. Nothing attacking the Steelers or the fans. He simply just told everyone when he’ll be back, without actually saying that’s when he’s coming back. A tweet only Le’Veon Bell can produce.
Classic Bell. Leaving so many questions in such a simple tweet. The date for Pittsburgh’s Week 1 game, a day many expect to see Le’Veon Bell return to the city for the first time. This would mean that negotiations between the two sides are done.
It may also just be a tweet of excitement. He’s a football players waiting to step foot on the field. It’s not practice, but it’s Week 1, practically Christmas for any NFL player.
Again, classic Bell. He’ll leave this up there for everyone to worry about while never letting us know what he means. Not that this is the same as calling himself the villain, but it’s just another social media post Steelers fans need worry about for the next three months.
