Le'Veon Bell Will Consider Sitting, Retiring If Steelers Use Tag

Le'Veon Bell Will Consider Sitting, Retiring If Steelers Use Tag

Bell held out at the start of training camp this season because he was unhappy about having to play under the franchise tag.

Le'Veon Bell is playing the 2017 season under the franchise tag. "I just want to be valued where I'm at", Bell said. "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".

But that's exactly what they have following Le'Veon Bell's comments Thursday about his future with the team.

"I hope it doesn't come to that, but I would definitely consider it", Bell told the network. "I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at".

"I don't think we got enough attempts", Bell said after the 21-point loss, adding, "I feel we're a good enough team to wear guys out whether they know we're running the ball or not".

Cross-strait trade picked up in 2017: Chinese customs
The International Monetary Fund is forecasting 2017 economic growth, due to be reported next week, at just under 6.8 percent. As North Korea's biggest trading partner and main source of aid, China holds influence over the pariah state.

He reiterated he doesn't care about the money aspect of playing football and said he would be comfortable leaving the sport if he felt he was getting a raw deal. "If I was a free agent and they let me go, be a free agent, then yeah, I'm going to go explore free agency, test the market". On Thursday, however, Bell delivered a warning shot of sorts to the Steelers concerning him possibly being franchise tagged a second consecutive year.

But that's a conversation for another time, at least according to Bell, who tweeted this shortly after news broke that he could take 2018 off.

Bell has 1,291 rushing yards and 85 passes caught for 655 yards with 11 touchdowns in 2017. That leaves it up to the Steelers to avoid the franchise tag and offer Bell a contract he can't refuse. "I just want to be valued where I'm at". Now, I've done everything but own a Super Bowl ... "But, if not, I'll just handle it however I've got to handle it". I'm a guy they can kind of look at. "I'm in a position where I can do that, and I'm going to do it".

"I want to be here, finish my career here", Bell said.
