Steelers' Le'Veon Bell expected to get franchise tag again

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell expected to get franchise tag again

General manager Kevin Colbert has repeatedly stated his preference and optimism for a multi-year deal ahead of Tuesday's 4 p.m. tag deadline, while also not ruling out use of the tag.

Pittsburgh Steelers' RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to receive his second straight franchise tag from the team.

Last year, Bell sat out training camp before he signed his franchise tender with the Steelers.

Sides have until July 16 to work on a long-term deal.

The Steelers had been hopeful they would be able to reach an agreement with Bell before the March 6 franchise tag-deadline.

We know that Bell wants a heck of a lot more than that, based on what he's said previously and because he'll earn $35.48 million over the next two years if the Steelers were to tag him again in 2019. He sat out all offseason workouts past year before putting pen to paper on the franchise tender.

But despite Bell's delay in signing the tag last season which cost him valuable offseason preparation, he still delivered one of the best seasons in his career. At the very least, it likely signifies that Bell and the Steelers aren't all that close in contract talks.
