    I believe the jets paid less for LB than we offered. Perhaps it can be worked out. I think he would be welcomed back in the locker room. Players understand the business of the NFL.

    I'm not saying Bell is worth the contract.

    I wonder how many of you have actually watched the Jets this year or formed your opinion by simply looking at his stats. Stats don't paint the entire picture.
    yea i have watched him.. and thats why i said he shows flashes.. but is not the player he was when with us (for whatever reason/s). With the salary cap... we cant simply say we are a better team with a guy (versus without) because of the implications that contract has on maintaining the rest of the roster

    and i think its hillarious if the jets are already trying to move him...

    Doesnt sound like a "Generational talent" to me

    2) no way Bell tucks tail and comes back here. He knows he lost lots of money, made enemies and got humiliated in public. He wanted guaranteed money and got it. (I don't think Bell's departure was all that acrimonious but I think the fans would accept him back, especially after made some big plays in big games)
    3) if we weren't going to cave in and give guaranteed money when he was productive, why would we now. (Well, the Jets would be on the hook for the signing bonus, the Steelers only his salary, I think. So, 8 games in he's owed about 8.5 million this year, if he doesn't renegotiate a contract the Steelers like, they can cut him, no harm, no foul and they used him for 8 games)
    4) what draft picks do we have that we can afford to give away? (Probably none)
    I realize there's probably no way to get him back to the Steelers but the Steelers are thin at RB right now. They are going to have sign an RB before this coming weekend I would think.

    Agreed.
    I don't see how it would EVER be possible on many levels.

    Exactly...........
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks.

    WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. So why delay the inevitable?

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70ís...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.

    I wonder if this just proves big money for RB's is a bad idea. To many injuries. Gurley does not look the same to me. Bell is below avg on a bad team, was good on a good team. Even the cards RB is hurt a lot and I think he got paid. They just Traded for Miami's other RB.
    I would like Bell back to be In a 2 back committee with a sprinkle of J Sam. As many here agree.
    Conner is banged up a lot. But what do you offer him soon? Is Snell a wasted pick then?
    Will Bell be humbled at all after all this? Getting traded for peanuts would have to hurt his ego.
    I know he can fit into the cap after some cuts etc but will he work his contract at all once here?
    No idea how things with him went on behind the scenes. Maybe the FO is like NO way not even for a low pick in 2021. I think he would really help save this season. Just not sure it can be done with all the moving parts.
    It would not seem to be something the Steelers do but for the rest of this season he would be a good rental then let him try again or restructure in the offseason. But what pick is that worth in 2021? I am not giving any up in 2020.
