Steelers Won't Rescind Franchise Tag On Le'Veon Bell

But the same doesn't apply elsewhere in the AFC North, where the always drama-filled Pittsburgh Steelers are now self-destructing over Le'Veon Bell's failure to show up. They'll see these Steelers - Bell or not - for the first time in Week 6. We're not anxious, they said.

Witness Cris Carter on the subject of Le'Veon Bell and his impasse with the Pittsburgh Steelers: "Either sign the contract and come in or just shut up".

And while Bell's agent took to the airwaves to vaguely explain Bell's reasoning for staying away, the men Bell has played alongside for the past five years are starting to run out of patience. "I'm kind of pissed right now". It sucks that he's not here. We'll move on as a team. During that stretch, the Steelers went 3-2 while averaging 25.8 points per game.

"Honestly, it's a little selfish", Pouncey said of Bell after practice.

"What do you do?" "He's making seven times what I make, twice as much as Al (Villanueva) is making and we're the guys that do it for him".

Bell has been with the Steelers since getting by them in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

If Bell doesn't sign his franchise tag by 4 pm on Saturday, he will forfeit $852,941 on salary. He will lose about $850,000 for each game he misses.

Federal Bureau of Investigation says 'Oz' slippers recovered in sting

Amsterdam stabbing: Pair injured on Friday revealed as Americans

How does Le'Veon Bell make his money?

There's a sense of anger that he has intentionally left them in the dark, forcing them to answer for him.

Pittsburgh general manager Kevin Colbert, who expressed disappointment on Monday when Bell's locker remained empty, declined comment. "If Adisa (Bakari) would like to talk further, he has the phone number to our offices".

The only question now is when will Bell show up?

"Whoa, I need to find a new team". However, that's exactly what Maurkice Pouncey and Ramon Foster did. The former Pitt star is in line to make his first National Football League start on Sunday and he's not too concerned about the circumstances that made it happen.

"Why play hide and seek?" he said. A football team ain't defined off one player. "When he gets here, I hope he'll be ready to go". If the Steelers were only following CBA rules by offering Bell the one-year deal, why should Bell be vilified for following the same rules?

Whatever Bell's plan is, he isn't telling.

"We did pretty good then, too", Roethlisberger said.
