    Le'Veon Bell

    I have a question for my fellow Steelers fans....Does anyone out the feel that the organization should pay Bell 14.5 million? The man is good but not 14.5 million good.

    We offered him that; and he said no. He wants 18 mil a year.

    In my opinion....I know he is tagged but we would be better off removing the tag and let him see teams are not willing to pay the for an RB. The draft has a few decent backs

    18 m? I heard he wants 14-15 M long term, almost all guaranteed.

    14 to 18.....not worth that kind of cash. But that is just my opinion.

    I wish they would have let him test the open market. Might be even better to do that now that teams have already signed guys to large contracts and some of the most RB needy teams have gotten a guy. Could be a real eye opener for him to lower his long term price.

    49ers just paid McKinnon 7.5 mill to split carries and he has never rushed for more than 600 yards.

    I think the FO knew Bell would get a great offer if they let him test the market. It would be kind of shady to release him after all the teams have made their moves. Thatís not how our FO usually operates.

    There are are more than a few teams loaded with cash and the way the CBA is set up Bell would get an offer that was close to or at the price he wants.

    I also think if we let him test him test the market and he left the highest we could get is a 3rd rounder and that would be bad business on our part.

    our FO is pretty smart. Iím sure they thought about it and realized letting him test the market wouldnít be in our best favor.

    Trade him to who?

    Doesn’t he have to be under contract before we can trade him?

    Disagree strongly; no one except maybe the crazy redskins would have offered him an 18 mil a year deal. No one with half a brain is going to give him that deal. He’s not worth that amount. 14mil a year was great; 6mil more then the next rb. Anything more and Steeler management is bidding only against itself.
