Le'Veon Bell not reporting to Steelers, won't play in 2018

Why the Patriots should be concerned in Week 10 vs. Titans

Le'Veon Bell has officially left $14.5 million on the table.

The Le'Veon Bell watch is nearly over for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"It's tough for me to give a good perspective because I'm not looking back and seeing the defensive line, but I think that's partially due to the reason, due to the fact that I felt a little rush out there", he added.

Bell, who has held out the entire year since being franchise-tagged for the second straight time, will forfeit the entirety of his £3.47m tender and not play at all in 2018.

"I understand that business is an element of the game of football", Tomlin said.

In his absence, the Steelers have won five straight games heading to Jacksonville on Sunday.

"So be it", Tomlin said. "We're comfortable with how we function, the people at our disposal, the division of labour and our ability to ready ourselves for the challenges". If he signed a lucrative deal elsewhere, the Steelers would receive a midround compensatory draft pick. He was sacked three times and hit on three other occasions en route to a 51 completion percentage.

And so, we appear to be at the end of Bell's career in Pittsburgh. A third franchise-player designation would deem Bell too costly. The flip side is that Bell won't enter free agency with an injury.

As his star rose, Bell insisted he wasn't merely a running back, pointing to his success as a receiver - he finished 10th in the league with 85 catches in 2017 - as proof that he should be paid far above his peers.

"I'm not going to comment on someone who's not in this locker room right now", quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said when asked about Bell after Thursday's 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers.

The Raiders chose to trade Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper over paying them in the near future, but they have plenty of money to spend should they try to go after a big-ticket player such as Bell. He returned to Pittsburgh last week and even played some pickup basketball at a fitness center.

It's as close to breaking a sweat with the Steelers as Bell will get.

Rocky franchise-tag negotiations created distance between Bell and the Steelers.
