Le'Veon Bell may hold out through start of camp

Le'Veon Bell may hold out through start of camp

This has obviously complicated contract negotiations between the two sides.

It's the second consecutive season Cousins will play on the franchise tag after he failed to agree on a long-term deal with the team by Monday's 4 p.m. deadline. In the wake of a couple of knee injuries through his first four seasons, Bell underwent surgery in March to fix a groin problem. But Bell is looking for a long-term commitment in terms of guaranteed cash. In fact, it's entirely possible Bell could stay away from the team until mid-to-late August.

Bell, 25, will make $12.1 million as the Steelers' franchise player in 2017. He will be a free agent in 2018, unless the Steelers again wield the franchise tag. "We will resume our efforts to address his contract situation following the 2017 season".

This doesn't mean that Bell won't finish his career in Pittsburgh, as Steelers owner Art Rooney II and GM Kevin Colbert had stated this winter.

Doha says U.S. media report showed UAE attack on Qatar's news agency
Qatar has previously asked U.S. and British officials to investigate the source of the hack. "What is true is Qatar's behaviour". Qatari officials said the agency had been hacked by an "unknown entity" and that the story had "no basis whatsoever".

Bell's 157 total yards per game last season ranks third all-time for a running back.

Bell especially shined in Week 14, when he set the franchise regular-season rushing record in a single game with 236 yards.

In both cases, Bell surpassed Hall of Famer Franco Harris. Bell wants to be compensated not just for running the ball, but also paid in line with his pass-catching ability. The Steelers locker room named Bell their 2016 MVP. The Steelers begin camp July 27 in Latrobe. Bell said at the time that he'd rather focus on his knee rehab than a new deal.
