Le'Veon Bell ready to carry heavy load for Steelers

Le'Veon Bell ready to carry heavy load for Steelers

In speaking to ESPN, Bell said, "I hope it doesn't come to that, but I would definitely consider it".

The 25-year old first-team All-Pro running back played on a $12.1 million franchise tag in 2017, and it isn't something he's interested in doing again.

Bell has been pretty incredible in helping Pittsburgh get to this point in the 2017 National Football League season so far, as he has rushed 321 times for 1,291 yards and caught 85 passes for 655 yards, along with 11 total touchdowns. It's a contest in which Bell, who was rested in Week 17, will once again head Pittsburgh's ground game, and that's his (and the team's) current focus.

He said: "I'm trying to win a super bowl.I can care less about what happens after this season.my biggest thing I'm focused on is this team I'm on right now, playing for/with my brothers, & bringing back a 7th ring! what happens next year is irrelevant to my goals". Bell is arguably the best running back in football; the Steelers aren't letting him just waltz into free agency. As far as Roethlisberger, the two-time Super Bowl champion said on Wednesday that he is not even thinking about the possibility that the game against the Jaguars could be his last game at Heinz Field. That being said, it's odd to hear this come out before the Steelers' first playoff game of the season.

Bell's comments, however, suggest the latter path could cause a standoff. Bell already turned down a deal that reportedly would have given him $30 million guaranteed over the first two seasons. "I just want to be valued where I'm at", per ESPN. If I am playing this game, I want to set standards for all the other running backs behind me, like Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott, Melvin Gordon, guys like that. "They tag me again, it will be me (saying), 'OK, do I want to play on the tag or do I not want to play on the tag?' That's what it comes down to". I'm not going to settle for anything.

If there's a silver lining for the Steelers, it's that Bell doesn't appear eager to leave Pittsburgh.
