Le'Veon Bell says he would sit out over franchise tag

As for retirement, Bell reportedly said he "hope [s] it doesn't come to that" but that if he decides to walk away from the Steelers he'll probably just hang up his cleats.

If he's franchised again next year, Bell should receive a salary in the neighborhood of $14.5 million.

The Steelers could designate him with the franchise tag again, negotiate a new contract, trade him or release him after the season.

The star running back carried the ball 321 times for 1,291 yards and rushing nine touchdowns this season while catching 85 passes for 766 yards and two touchdowns. Bell is demanding the Steelers "value me" this coming offseason. "I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at".

Antonio Conte makes claim about Eden Hazard's Chelsea FC future
His father, Thierry Hazard much recently revealed that his son had rejected a new contract offer at the blues. The Belgian has also admitted it would "be a dream" to play under Zidane, whom he calls an "idol".

If Bell were to sit out the year, he told ESPN, he would likely be finished with football. Another reason the Steelers might balk at giving him the long-term deal he wants is that Bell has previously been suspended for substance use, putting him at risk for further (and longer) suspensions. "They tag me again, it will be me (saying), 'OK, do I want to play on the tag or do I not want to play on the tag?' That's what it comes down to". Could we be seeing the last of Bell in an National Football League uniform?

The team did have a long-term offer on the table until July 18, the deadline for franchise player designees to avoid playing this season under the tag by inking a different deal. Right now, though, Bell is just trying to focus on the playoffs. And if they win that, they will play in the Super Bowl.

As for what Google could do with Redux, the search giant may build smartphones that eschew speakers. The Bloomberg report says that the shares were transferred to Google on December 13.

Bell is certainly one of the best running backs, and best players, in the NFL. "If I was a free agent and they let me go, be a free agent, then yeah, I'm going to go explore free agency, test the market". But that's exactly what they have following Le'Veon Bell's comments Thursday about his future with the team. "I can care less about what happens after this season.my biggest thing I'm focused on is this team I'm on right now, playing for/with my brothers, & bringing back a 7th ring! what happens next year is irrelevant to my goals".

Disappointed with Real Madrid signing, Zidane demands another
Gareth Bale scored twice to cancel out Daniel Wass' opener and give Madrid the lead before half-time. We have to have more confidence in our possibilities.
