Le’Veon Bell has missed all of Steelers training camp this year, just as he did last year when they used the franchise tag on him. Last year, he reported to the team on Labor Day, just before the Week 1 game.  This year, he still has not reported to the team and will not play Week 1 against the Browns.

It is not known when he will report to the team. He has still not signed his $14.5 million franchise tag.  He could miss the first 10 games of the season and still become a free agent in 2019. As for money, he will forfeit $852,941 per game.

It appears that the Steelers organization and the players expected him here by now. Reaction by some players has been harsh:


Adisa Bakari, Bell’s agent, was on SiriusXM NFL Radio‏ today.

He sounded worried that the Steelers would overuse Bell and hurt his long-term value.
