    The deadline to sign the tag is Tuesday Nov 13.

    "Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com reports that neither the Steelers nor the NFL is planning on making the franchise tender from this season carry over to next season, but Bell could miss out on benefits in relation to his pension and healthcare reimbursement that are connected to how many credited seasons a player has.

    https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/11/07/leveon-bell-steelers-future-contract-franchise-tag-third-time


    This is the first time I've seen a validated source stating that all Bell would be out for sitting the entire year would be essentially losing pension benefits and healthcare reimbursement. Seems like a drop in the bucket when he's dropping 855,000 thousand a game.

    So if this report is correct, if Bell were Franchised Tagged next year it'd be at 25 million. Think everyone knows the Steelers aren't paying that. There is the transition tag option with a baseline price of around 10 mill a year with potential to match offers for other teams.

    Interestingly Bell has been reported leaving Miami

    https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/11/05/leveon-bell-leaves-miami-next-stop-pittsburgh/


    And was reportedly seen in Pittsburgh.

    https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2018/11/07/leveon-bell-spotted-in-pittsburgh/



    So a fun poll question that closes in two days.

    What do you think?

    No sign...he's gone too far down this road and will be stubborn and say F it, I'm not going back. Rinse and repeat next year. His career is over.

    The beautiful part about a forum is that if you don't like the topic discussed, you just don't have to click on it.

    Successful predictions should win a share of the unspent cap space.

    I think he shows Monday the 12th, is not a disruption & leaves Pittsburgh with some SB bling on his finger to rap about. Black & Gold shades got me all giddy.

    There is no way to know if it is a legitimate intelligent post until you click on it.

    Or, we could have people who don’t post the same thing over and over just get attention.

    Another left fielder.

    There is no doubt in my mind hes going to show up. The poll should be, what do you think the Steelers are going to do with him once he gets here? Should be interesting.:popcorn:

    These redundant Bell threads are stupid, but at least they’re Steelers related unlike that stupid Dez Bryant thread.

    We could break down the Steelers 1974 draft again, that never seems to get old.

    Not sure why everybody gets so worked up about “bell threads,” it’s literally forum gold and probably generated more curious new users then angry old men who can’t stand the guy.

    On the topic: I think the general consensus is that no steeler fan cares when he comes back. He ruined his image for us.

    Anywho, back to just reading for a few months.

    Love you!
