Bell: No long-term deal will lead to 'rerun' of 2017
| 3 months ago

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell vowed to repeat his actions from last year if he doesn't receive a long-term deal.

Following the path he traveled in 2017, Bell plans to skip training camp before signing the franchise tag tender the week of the season opener. The 26-year-old noted on Instagram Live that he will not sit out the entire season, however.

"Honestly, no, I'm not going to sit out," Bell said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I'm going to be in the facility Week 1. It's going to be a rerun of last year. I'm not going to camp. I'm not doing nothing else extra, OTAs, none of that.

"I'm going to strictly go to what I have to go to. I want to win every game. I want to have the best statistical career that I (possibly) can, so I want to play in every game that I can possibly play."

The Steelers have until July 16 to work out a long-term deal with Bell. Should that not come to pass, Bell will play under the one-year, $14.54 million tender.

"Hopefully, when it comes down to it, we won't have to deal with (sitting out)," Bell said. "We'll get a deal done. That's the biggest thing. We want to get a deal done. ... If not, I'll handle it from there, but I definitely won't be in camp. It's basically a rerun of last year."
