Le'Veon Bell doesn't report to Steelers on Monday

A running back franchise player of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Le’Veon Bell is still absent, while the first regular season official practice day 2018 is near. He was franchise-tagged by the team during recent offseason due to they were unable to finalize a long-term contract agreement. The team was hopeful, but he hasn’t yet reported to the team unexpectedly. One teammate of Steelers informed Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network that there wasn’t any kind of sign from Bell on Monday at the facility of the team. The general manager of Steelers, Kevin Colbert issued a statement after finding the absence of Bell and expressed his displeasure that Bell is still unable to show up.

Colbert delivered his expression on the team’s official website and said that he is dissatisfied that Le’Veon Bell hasn’t yet signed his franchise agreement to rejoin his teammates of Steelers. The team coach Tomlin and the coaching staff will be focused on training the players for our regular season opener according to our schedule against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

It is important that the season opener of Pittsburgh is only 6-days away. The reporter of ESPN for Steelers, Jeremy Fowler pointed out that Bell could show up on Wednesday’s practice and he might be on the field for Sunday contest.

Bell has resisted for a new deal during each of the last 2-offseasons. He showed up just a week before the first game of the season and put together another remarkable campaign. He totaled 1,947 yards on a league-high 406 touches. The Steelers hasn’t yet indicated that they will fulfill his price requirement on a long-term contract. It is also expected that he might leave the team during next offseason. He is expected to report the team on Monday. He might be replaced by his backup after missing any time during the regular season. The former Pittsburgh University’s running back, James Conner is Bell’s backup player and he was the third-round pick of the team in 2017.
