    Will Bell sign?

    With the deadline one week away, do you think that Bell will sign a long-term deal? Or play 2018 on the TAG?

    Personally, I think he's more enamored with testing free agency than he is with remaining a Pittsburgh Steeler. He'll play 2018 under the TAG IMO.

    I think that the Tag is the most likely outcome (it's what I voted for). But, I won't be surprised if he ends up signing the deal. Playing out the tag seems like such a huge gamble, but he's already shown he's willing to do it.

    Last tag for Bell. He walks after that imho. Not happy about it but seems it's headed that way.

    We aren't going to franchise tag him again, because the value of that one year contract would vault up into QB territory, but I believe the team would still have the ability to transition tag Bell after this season. While we wouldn't get any compensation if he signed elsewhere, we would have the option to match another team's contract to keep him if we wanted to.

    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    I donít think Colbert will play that game; heíll just let Bell walk. And thatís a shame that we wonít get any compensation. But because we will let him go, Iím sure Tomlin will give Connor and co. an opportunity in games that we have well in hand a chance to show us what they can do.

    The Steelers will get compensation...a third round comp pick...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+Ä# up and wear it.
