    I’ve been one of Bell’s biggest fans right now seeing what Conner can do who needs Bell? I just saw another report saying Bell is not reporting again. In my opinion he can stay in his hold out. All it’s going to do is disrupt the teams chemistry when he tries to come back. I know this is been a talked about topic, but who’s with me to bench Bell when he comes back?

    He shown no interest in wanting to play for the Steelers why give him a shot when he comes back? I understand he’s one of the best running backs in the league, but so is James Conner.

    Can the Steelers rescind their offer now? I'd make him do a Duce Staley impression for the rest of his time here!

    If they keep playing the way that they are, I rescind the tag as he's walking into the building to sign the contract. I know that they will lose out on a 3rd rounder in 2020 and he may potentially go to a conference rival like the Pats or Chargers as a short term rentaplayer, but I wouldn't disrupt the team chemistry at all. And I don't trust this prick to not be a major distraction when he comes back.

    I want Bell back! I think he'll be a great backup to Conner, and he's a nice insurance policy in case Conner gets injured going into or during the playoffs.

    Of course there is no way any sane coach would bench the NFL's second-leading rusher and the team's 3rd leading receiver in order to start a player who hasn't played football in almost a year. If Bell returns, it will be as a (very expensive) backup.

    I was a huge fan of Bell too. I've got a signed football in my case downstairs. I wanted Bell to be a Steeler for his entire career, or at least most of it. But given what he's done and how he's behaved this season, I really don't want to see him on the field for the Steelers. Even if he signs, why would you disrupt what is happening right now? Conner has earned his spot, he doesn't deserve to be looking over his shoulder at Bell.

    Also, every game that Bell sits out and Conners performs like this lowers his value IMO. He's looking less and less like that elite, rare talent all the time.

    Let him come in. He can be useful as a backup.

    I’d put his azz on kickoff coverage and punt coverage. If he even as hesitated going into the game suspend him without pay.

    Why pay 855K a game when 34K is destroying it?

    It's no longer a question of what to do with Bell. Conner is a top 3 back in the league this season. If Bell does come back he will be a backup. Even if he comes back in great shape and ready to work, he will be lucky to get a few touches a game. This is James Conner's team now.

    Conner had 31 touches today against the Ravens.

    He's the man to focus on now.

    Bell can take a backseat.

    I could see some plays where you,put both them out there, then flex one out to receiver. Could be a nightmare for defenses.

    In all honesty, I will be shocked if Bell ever plays another down for the Steelers. If he reports he will be exempt for 2 weeks, and then inactive for the remainder of his time here. If he does play I do not see how it benefits the Steelers to have him involved. The only way to cure cancer is to cut it out. Well that, or you can have James Conner beat the **** out of the cancer. That works too.
