    From the article: "There's literally no other player in the league who would turn down a contract that made them the highest-paid player at their position by SIX MILLION DOLLARS."

    Speaks volumes to the type of individual L. Bell is.

    I understand wanting to "get paid", but that's completely ridiculous.

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    Time to run those wheels in the ground and get all they can.

    I’m just hoping Bell doesn’t come around till the week of the start of the season. By then we’ll know what we have in the other two guys.

    Those 2.. plus J. Franklin. just watched some film on him.. he looks good. We know what Ridley can do. He's a decent back in his own right

    The 70 million was probably fine for Bell. The structure of the contract was probably the issue. Bell probably wanted more guaranteed money up to the point where it would be difficult for the Steelers to cut him after 2 or 3 season if he didn't produce. Basically meaning he wanted "security" for his entire 5 year contract.

    Bingo.

    After 3 years they could cut Bell loose to save money.

    He wants more security.

    Probably true. In which case he may have a tougher time than we suspect finding a team that will do this. It starts to look like a terrible bet that this half-wit won't fire up the bong again a year or two down the road, if he knows he gets paid anyway.
