Acceptance people.

The Steelers will be lucky to get a 2nd round pick for Bell

Injury history
Drug issues
Off field distractions
Low valued position
Steelers have little leverage

Pray the Lions or Raiders offer a 1st...Very little chance it happens

That's a BIG step one, which tbh is why I hesitated to post this to begin with.

But if they can agree to a deal with another franchise (that includes a long term offer for Bell), then I'm sure he would sign.

Non-exclusive franchise tag could net the Steelers 2 first round draft picks. Or possibly a high draft pick and coveted player.


This would be in Steelers best interest. Let the market set Bell's worth. If someone is that high on him and willing to pay him the coin, say goodbye. BUT..., if the market tells him no one is willing to pay more than 9 mill. for his services, he will be hit with a huge reality check and the Steelers should only offer that amount or let him walk. It could be possible that a team banks on that and will pick him up for more once he's released, but knowing his ego and the coin he is demanding, I don't see him playing in the league next year unless he comes to grips with his value!

So tag him. if he's tagged and refuses to sign, what are his options? Does he get paid anything? Does he count against the cap?

Unfortunately, I don't believe they can go backwards on the type of tag. They screwed that up - nobody was [or is] parting with 2 #1's to sign Bell.

I like what steelfan was talking about. If they do that would it be next year draft.

Get used to it because it won’t change till he’s gone.
In fact it’s only going to get worse IMO

We need to find a modern day equivalent to Mewelde Moore, or Gary Russell to take his place. Let's hope and pray that Ridley is that guy.
