Steelers still haven’t heard from Le’Veon Bell

Report: Steelers still haven't heard from Bell

Last season, Bell rushed for 1,291 yards and nine touchdowns.

Although Le'Veon Bell has been planning to report to the Steelers in time to be ready for their October 28 game against the Browns, Pittsburgh team officials and players have not heard anything from the star running back, sources told ESPN.

Bell could report during that time, and be paid for this week as well, but the Steelers remain in wait-and-see mode.

Further complicating matters is that Pittsburgh has a bye in Week 7, which means Bell may not be in any rush to come back.

Despite that statement, as of Sunday, Bell had still not been in touch with team officials or players, sources told Schefter.

Earlier Monday, Schefter reported that Bell was expected to return to Pittsburgh's training facility at some point this week after missing Monday's practice.

Additionally, Bell is costing himself money by not returning during the bye week.

By not showing up this week - during which the Steelers do not even play a game - Le'Veon Bell is costing himself at least a shot at $856K.

Bell hasn't signed his $14.5 million franchise tag while preserving his health for a long-term contract. "I still do want to go out there and win a Super Bowl with the Steelers".

The Steelers also could elect to trade Bell by the National Football League deadline, which is October 30.
