Le’Veon Bell explains what is behind his upside-down tweets

Le’Veon Bell explains what is behind his upside-down tweets

The drama between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Le'veon Bell continues.

A source told Mark Kaboly of The Athletic that Bell is not a lock to sign his franchise tender prior to the November 13 deadline after he learned that it would still be considered the third time the Steelers use the franchise tag on him if they choose to go that route again this offseason.

Bell must report to the team by Tuesday - Week 11, before the Steelers' matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars (Sunday, Nov. 18) - or he forfeits the season. That makes sense and would seemingly be the player's only incentive to show up, but there is now some disagreement about whether that is actually the case. Bell has sat out the first nine weeks of the regular season and has not signed his franchise tender for the season. Pittsburgh resident John Maus, who posted a video of Bell on his Snapchat story, said the subject in his video is "110 percent Le'Veon" and his video was shot live.

But despite Bell's tweet, the Steelers still haven't heard from him and their focus remains the same with the players and coaches in the building as they prepare for Thursday's game vs. Carolina, a source told ESPN.

However, the Steelers can franchise tag Bell for a third time in 2019, but he would be tagged at the quarterback salary number. But Bell would still be free to test the market under the transition tag, and even if the Steelers matched any external offers, he'd still get the long-term deal he's wanted all along.

"There's now a real possibility that Bell won't report by the deadline". He could become a free agent in 2019 if the Steelers don't franchise him again.
