    He will get paid around $25 million next year if tagged again. That is almost double what the 2nd highest paid RB in the league would make. That kind of salary would make him untradeable, even if he did sign it

    Who says it's 25 mill? and I've heard it's lower if he doesn't show this year. He isn't going to sign it, that's the whole point. Try to work out a trade and if there's nothing you pull the tag. You know he isn't going to sign it.

    Exactly the Steelers can do what's best for them. And what other teams do does have barring on eachother. If another team plays player x then player z can argue if his stats and numbers look better that he should get that. If not he can go elsewhere to get what he feels he should. And dont try to backtrack now. You first argument was they couldnt play with a unproven rb but yet they started a unproven ss with no nfl experience whatsoever in Edmund's. They started watt last yr as a rookie. So therefore pitt does start players that are "unproven" which also debunks another one of your theories. So no that's not why they tagged bell. They tagged him because they wanted to use his services and didnt want a talent of his caliber to play elsewhere. They felt he could help them get that sb that we have been chasing for a few years now. That was why. Not because they had an unproven backup rb. But you can keep trying to ignore that so it doesnt look like it was a bad move by pitt to franchise tag him again after what they went through the year prior. And wow darelle revis must be overrated then if he let of all people a over the hill wr burn him while revis was at his peak prime. That's embarrassing. And that particular year his longest catch was for 55 yards. He can an over hill wr make a 55 yard catch? And how can an over the hill receiver average 15.5 yds per catch and score 3 tds? Some guys half his age cant do that for a career. And also in san Fran that was a moss after not playing for THREE SEASONS. They didnt want to pay moss in NE idiot also the seasons before they traded moss he had 83 catches, 1264YDs, and 13 tds. Then after 4 games he had 22 catches and 3 TDs. So they said yeah hes over the hill after he did all that lmao.https://www.businessinsider.com/why-the-patriots-traded-randy-moss-now-2010-10 also there's are article stating WHY THEY TRADED HIM.

    "Once it became clear they had a grumpy wide-receiver on their hands--Moss reportedly had an "outburst" in the locker room during halftime of Monday's game-- the Patriots made their move." But they got rid of him because he was "over the hill". Lmao

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap30...on-bell-would-be-at-qb-number-if-tagged-again

    We weren't able to trade him this year when his cap number was $14 and you think we can trade him next year when it's almost double that? No team is going to take on a RB with that kind of salary. We either slap him with the transition tag and match any offer he gets or we let him walk and collect a comp pick.

    It makes zero sense to tag him again. Whether he signs or not, he's untradeable, and I have no doubt both Bell and the Steelers simply want to part ways at this point.

    They weren't able to trade him because no team could sign him long term and he wouldn't sign the tag so there was no possible way to trade him. It's different in the off-season because he isn't going to sit out 2 years in a row. If the Steelers find somebody who pay him what he wants, he will sign it for a trade.

    I know...But salary cap money does carry over corrrect...And I stated it was a gamble, and to pick up a better backup RB NEXT year...I understand the trade deadline is passed, and getting something off the scrap heap isn't any better than what we have...But NEXT year we should have extra money to play with

    Yes, they can rollover the money to next year's cap. The Steelers should have a good bit of room next year already given the money they've saved with Bell being out and then the money they won't be paying Bell next year.
