Schefter Reporting Bell will Return Week 7

Finally word is apparently out about when Le’Veon Bell will return to the Steelers. That time will be during their bye week in week 7.

Now an interesting situation has come about that would include the Steelers using the transition tag on Bell after the 2018 season. The transition tag would cost the Steelers 120% of what Bell makes in 2018. Since he’s currently making nothing that price would be significantly less than if he was franchised for a third season.

The Steelers will likely file for a roster exemption that would give them two weeks to get Bell back into game shape and allow them to keep him inactive without pay if they choose to do so.
