The Steelers are in first place with James Conner. What happens if Le’Veon Bell returns? Conner, Bell’s replacement at running back, had a huge performance in Sunday’s win over the Browns. Bell could return after Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline.

Steelers owner Art Rooney II expects running back Le’Veon Bell to report by next Tuesday’s deadline, as he explained on SiriusXM Radio earlier today (link via Austin Knoblauch of NFL.com).

“I don’t know what his plans are, but I would say at this point we expect him to come back next week,” Rooney said. “We know he’s back in Pittsburgh and so we’re hoping to have some communications with him over the weekend and we’re kind of expecting he will be back next week.”

Steelers, Le’Veon Bell move closer to the final deadline

Steelers, Le’Veon Bell move closer to the final deadline Within the next nine days, Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell either will show up, or he won’t. If he does, the Steelers will have Bell to pair with AFC offensive player of the month James Conner. If he doesn’t, the Steelers will have a big decision to make in the offseason.

Le ' Veon Bell has not had contact with the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeremy Fowler, and is not expected to The collective bargaining agreement mandates that any player on a contract or on a tender must report by the Tuesday after the 10th week of the

Then Le ’ Veon stubs his big toe at home while pissed, ends up losing the toe and his balance. Career over and he can still sell insurance. What about 10? Has Bell become addicted to prescription medication and is 60 pounds overweight? Connor has gone on to become NFL’s all time rushing

Bell must report by Tuesday in order to play in the NFL this season, but whether he reports or not won’t necessarily affect his financial future. If the Steelers use the franchise tag on Bell in 2019, regardless of whether he shows up this year, it will be considered his third tag and therefore be worth more than $25M, an untenable amount for any running back. Pittsburgh could still deploy the transition tag at a cheaper cost, but Bell would be free to negotiate with other clubs and the Steelers wouldn’t receive any compensation if he left.

Hypothetically, it’s fair to wonder if Pittsburgh even wants Bell back in the building, given that some Steelers have voiced frustration with the star running back. That’s not the case, however, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com says that Pittsburgh does indeed want Bell to return, regardless of how his situation has played out thus far. Nevertheless, at least one anonymous Steeler did express a bit of discontent to NFL.com’s Aditi Kinkhabwala.

“This Le’Veon thing is just a cloud over us at this point,” said the unnamed player. “Just make a decision, sign or not, be in or out, and let’s all move forward.”

While the Steelers think Bell will report by Tuesday, PFR readers do not agree. In a poll earlier today, more than three-quarters of voters said they don’t believe Bell will show up by next week.

Report: Steelers wouldn’t promise Le’Veon Bell they would not use franchise or transition tag in 2019.
The Steelers and Bell's team worked to the deadline to try to get Bell on the team.
