Bell, 27, sat out all last season amid a contract dispute with the Steelers. Seeking a long-term deal with guaranteed money, his anticipated move is expected to be one of the biggest of free agency this season after Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert confirmed the organization won't use the franchise tag on him.
