Someone is always coming along and resetting the market for a position. That usually happens every couple of years based on when a elite talent gets to FA. Look at Cousins. You think he's worth that money compared to other QBs? It's being in the right place at the right time. Why would Bell sign a contract for less money? He was looking to reset the market himself and used every thing in his right to try and do that. The year before he played on the franchise tag worth over 12 mil. This year he decided it wasn't worth the risk. That's his decision,right or wrong. The market has been set . Now we will see if his gamble paid off. I'm betting he doesn't do much better than what the Steelers "reportedly " offered. Either way it doesn't change that it was his decision and within his rights to use the rules that are in place.
