Le’Veon Bell a No-Show at Team’s Voluntary Offseason Workouts

Instead of being with the Pittsburgh Steelers for their annual voluntary offseason workouts before training camp, running back Le’Veon Bell has decided to prep for the season on his own down in Miami, FL.

Bell is still unsigned as he and the Steelers have yet to come to a long-term deal. He has been issued the team’s franchise tag for the time being for the second season in a row. The Steelers have until July 16 to come to a long-term agreement with Bell. If the two sides are not able to reach a deal, Bell will play under the one-year, $14.54 million franchise tender. If this is any indication of what happened prior to the beginning of last season, we can expect for Bell to hold out until the regular season opener in September.

Bell finished with 1,291 rushing yards (3rd best in the league), and nine rushing touchdowns. He added an additional career-best 85 catches (led all running backs) for 655 receiving yards, along with two touchdowns.

“Bell plans to workout rigorously over the next few months, most likely on his own,” per reports from ESPN writer, Jeremy Fowler.
