Le’Veon Bell Opens Up About Contract Holdout With Bizarre Tweets

Panthers injury updates No practice for Ryan Kalil Torrey Smith

Reports from earlier in the season suggested Bell needed to sign with the team by November 13 if he wanted to retain his free agent eligibility following the season.

Le'Veon Bell is in Pittsburgh, but that doesn't mean he will be reporting for work anytime soon, or anytime at all.

Queen breaks tradition, invites Doria Ragland to Christmas with royals
We will remind that on the eve of the wedding Meghan Markle has represented his mother Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Traditionally, the royal festive fun is held at Sandringham, one of the Queen's official residences.


Bell must sign his franchise tender or sign a one-year deal with the team ahead of the November 13 deadline in order to retain his eligibility for this season. That makes sense and would seemingly be the player's only incentive to show up, but there is now some disagreement about whether that is actually the case. Bell posted a tweet upside down - yes, upside down - to speak out on the situation. The salary of the third franchise tag is determined by the average of the top five highest-paid players in the National Football League (not just top five running backs), which would be around $25 million for 2019.

Bell has played his holdout strategy close to the vest all season and continues to do so.

Mass Shooting Reported At Borderline Bar & Grill In Thousand Oaks, California
At least 30 shots were fired at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, which is about 40 miles west of Los Angeles. Witness John Hedge told ABC News that he saw a suspect throwing smoke bombs into the front of the restaurant.


But despite Bell's tweet, the Steelers still haven't heard from him and their focus remains the same with the players and coaches in the building as they prepare for Thursday's game vs. Carolina, a source told ESPN. That is, if the Steelers decide to franchise tag him, which they might not even bother to do given the massive headache he's given them (and factoring in the emergence of James Conner). If the Steelers match, regardless of the offer, Bell would have to sign that deal with Pittsburgh.

While he was spotted hooping it up with the locals at a gym he is reportedly known to frequent, there have been no reported sightings of Bell around Steelers camp. He could become a free agent in 2019 if the Steelers don't franchise him again.
