Steelers, Le'Veon Bell fail to reach deal on long-term extension

Steelers, Le'Veon Bell fail to reach deal on long-term extension

The two-time All-Pro will play this upcoming season under the franchise tag. "We will resume our efforts to address his contract situation following the 2017 season". If it doesn't happen, Bell will play the 2017 season on a one-year deal for the average salary of the league's top five running backs - probably somewhere around $12 million. As expected, Bell's negotiations with the Steelers pressed against the deadline of July 17 at 4 p.m. ET, a similar theme with star players such as Dez Bryant and Von Miller in recent years. In the wake of a couple of knee injuries through his first four seasons, Bell underwent surgery in March to fix a groin problem. He has not yet signed his one-year tender after the Steelers placed the franchise tag on him in March, so he would not be subject to fines, according to NBC Sports ProFootballTalk.

Investing in Bell has become a question for the Steelers since he has been plagued with injuries and suspensions, missing 16 games in his four-year career.

No Exceptions For Depositing Old Notes: Centre To Chief Justice Of India
There have been instances earlier when the Chief Justice has asked the government to help genuine citizens. The deadline to deposit the bills at the Reserve Bank of India was March-end 2017.

For the Steelers' part, they seem to think that Bell will be ready to go once camp starts. He rushed for 1,268 yards and seven touchdowns last season, adding 75 receptions for 616 yards. But Bell is looking for a long-term commitment in terms of guaranteed cash. He set franchise records with 4,166 and 4,917 yards the past two seasons.

If Bell falters in 2017, the Steelers spent a year getting leverage and the services of one of the most unsafe offensive weapons in the sport they both play. Bell said at the time that he'd rather focus on his knee rehab than a new deal.
