Good Lord - the right answer of course is

"We're trying to win a Super Bowl and I have an important playoff game to focus on. There will be plenty of time to deal with my contract once the season is over."

Then he can bitch and moan all he wants about how $14M isn't enough.

Seriously, how much of this year's drama is self inflicted? :roll:

Thanks- this is the story....that’s he is a dipshit when he opens his mouth which has been a story with many pages with this team. Hopefully they back up all the drama with dominating performances in the next 3 games.

One of the National Football League's biggest stars says he would consider sitting out a full season, or even retiring, if his team tries to use the league's franchise tag on him for the second straight year.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell made the comments to ESPN, saying that he is optimistic that he won't be forced to make such a decision. "But I would definitely consider it," he said, before Thursday's practice.

Bell played under the franchise tag this season, earning $12.1 million. That number is expected to increase to about $14.5 million next year.

The Steelers can tag a player between February 20 and March 6, with the two sides having until July 16 to agree to a long-term contract.

Bell says he just wants the team to "value me." That after turning down a long-term deal worth up to $30 million for the first two years last offseason.

"Just get the numbers straight exactly where we want them. I'm not going to settle for anything," Bell said. "I know what I do and what I bring to the table. I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at."

Bell caught 85 passes for 655 yards and rushed 321 times for 1,291 yards and scored 11 total touchdowns this season. If he did decide to sit out, Bell acknowledged that his career would likely be over.

"I'm happy where I'm at," he said. "Football is kind of like my job, it's not something that makes me unhappy, but I don't need it to be happy. I've made the money that I feel I needed to make, my family would be good. I don't necessarily care if I get more money or not."


Hey Ding Bat.
You are one of 53 that needs to stay focused and play as a team on Sunday.
Can think about dollar signs after winning the SB.

Bell is dumb. Players in general are dumb. If we all just accept that notion, and watch the game for what it is, we would all be less agitated in general.


Winner!

I’m trying to win a super bowl...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

If Ben is back, which I think he will be.
You certainly bring Bell back.
If a deal can not be worked out.,
You franchise him.
And go win a second straight SB.

He holds out.
Can not see him leaving $14.5 on the table.
That's $14.5 he is never going to make back, even if someone signs him to a ridiculous contract as an UFA in 2019.

We get a fresh Lev Bell right about the time the PS start playing good football.
Fresh for the second half of season and another run at the SB

These guys just have no filter. I do not think Bell's comments mean that he is not absolutely hyper-focused on helping the team reach and win a SB.

But let's face it. The NFL requires players to be available for media. Unfortunately, Bell is unable to keep his trap shut when asked a question about next year. But I doubt this becomes a locker room distraction.

I can live with this! Hate to let the guy walk after next year but it’s looking more and more like we aren’t going to be able to sign him - I can’t see Art2 franchising him then trading.
