Le’Veon Bell’s Status For Week 1 Has Reportedly Been Decided

Steelers teammates turn on Le'Veon Bell: 'He f--ked us'

Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell is prepared to miss regular-season games as he continues his holdout, and he can sit out through Week 10 and still be eligible to become a free agent in 2019, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.

The Steelers have the option of doing so.

Oh, boy. We knew Bell was holding out, but the assumption all along was that he would follow the plan laid out a year ago, when he refused to sign his franchise tag until the final week before the start of the season, before reporting in time for Week 1.

Scroll through the Twitter newsfeed, and you'll see the fantasy football world practically begging Le'Veon Bell to end his holdout and report.

General manager Kevin Colbert - who issued a statement Monday that the team was "disappointed" Bell hadn't signed the tender - will not be made available for comment, but the Steelers issued a statement through director of communications Burt Lauten. "I am excited for James, probably as much as he is for himself to get out there". "We'll worry about him in Week 2", Pouncey said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Tim Benz. You've got to face the criticism. "I know the league is all about get your money, get paid, I love it".

The Steelers used to be in the business of winning Super Bowls, but it's been a decade since they won their sixth Lombardi Trophy.

Speaking in an interview with MUTV , Mourinho said: "Difficult for us, hard for them [the other teams]". "It was never on the table".

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey called Bell's behavior "selfish".

The Steelers' locker room has the right to be upset with Bell, of course.

"When he gets here, that's when we'll start quantifying all Le'Veon Bell things, his overall readiness, the amount of time we have between his arrival and our next competition, etc. etc.", Tomlin said Wednesday. "Any time you have a guy like that, you want him on the field with you", said Roethlisberger. He can still technically accrue a full year of service time if he reports by Week 10. Samuels deserves a decent amount of work as a third-down back, and former Patriots 1,000-yard rusher Stevan Ridley will give Conner a handful of power relief.

Bell's agent, Adisa Bakari, suggested that a one-year deal with Pittsburgh will only result in him being worn down more quickly and that the running back is aiming to protect his long-term value.

Roethlisberger knows the offense is going to have a challenge from the entire Browns defense, but also realizes Garrett is someone they have to key a close eye on.

That's their way of saying, "You're it".
