    Bell Fighting a Tough Battle

    Seems the Steelers are not the only team regarding the RB position with less value:

    Check out what Joel Corry at cbssports.com put together:

    https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/a...-hand/?irgwc=1

    And this isn't a recent thing. It's been a decline for 5 yrs running!

    bottomline, teams believe RBs can be easily replaced with cheaper alternatives. it doesn't look like Bell alone will be able reverse the trend.

    Wow, Barkley for Bell trade with Stains.

    I wouldn’t give Bell and #28 for #4 and the chance to get Barkley...no thank you...

    However, if Derrius Guice happens to be the best player available at #28, then I hope the Steelers take him...in the draft, I generally prefer taking the better player over filling a perceived need...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.

    I’d do that sign and trade deal in a heartbeat.

    As would I. And the Browns HAVE a ridiculous amount of cap space to pay Bell.

    You might ask, "why make a division rival better? Fact is money spent to pay a back means less to spend elsewhere. The Browns would be smarter to draft Barkley themselves.

    Overpaying elite "skill" players keeps teams down in today's NFL. Ever since the Rams of it has not worked.

    Not sure why people keep talking about trading Bell for Barkley. It’s not happening. It’s the dumbest idea I have ever heard and people continue to entertain it because the draft can’t get here soon enough.

    I agree...I was merely saying that I believe the Steelers should draft the best player available...if it is Guice, then so be it...if it is a potential franchise QB, then so be it...if it is Rashaan Evans, Leighton Vander Esch, or Justin Reid, then so be it...
