Le'Veon Bell skipped almost all of final walkthrough of season

Le'Veon Bell skipped almost all of final walkthrough of season

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Bell missed nearly all of the Steelers' walk-through a day before the team took on the Jacksonville Jaguars in their AFC divisional round playoff matchup last weekend. He was apparently pretty unhappy about his contract situation throughout this season, though he did say after the Steelers' season came to an end that he "definitely" wants to be back in Pittsburgh next year.

"Not only did Bell arrive much later than that for the playoff game against Jacksonville (as well as one coach), he missed practically the entire Saturday walkthrough the day before, showing up about five minutes before practice ended".

He also reportedly showed up later than the deadline set by coach Mike Tomlin for game days, as the coach wants players and staff there two hours before kickoff and he ignored that instruction. Tagging Bell again will cost them $14.57 million, and there's no guarantee he'll show up if that happens.

The Pro Bowler has already threatened to retire or sit out the 2018-19 campaign if Pittsburgh does, in fact, slap another franchise tag on him, so there is a chance that Bell has placed his last game as a member of the Steelers.

Last year, the Steelers offered Bell a deal that "would have paid him more than $12 million on average per year and more than $30 million in the first two", according to Bouchette, but Bell turned down that deal despite the advice of his agent. In an article from noted local reporter Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, further disciplinary issues have been called into question.

Bell finished the regular season ranked third in the league in rushing yards with 1,291 in 15 games.
