Schefter: Steelers Not Close To Signing Bell Long-Term With Deadline Looming

Steelers' star running back Le'Veon Bell was designated as the team's franchise player, which gives him a one-year contract valued around $12 million - the average salary of the five highest-paid players at his position for this season.

According to Jeremy Fowler of, Bell is recovered from offseason core muscle surgery, and should be ready to participate from the start of camp. The Steelers could also rescind the franchise tag and sign Bell to a one-year deal worth more than the tag would pay him, but that nearly certainly isn't going to happen. Still, that does not mean Bell has to show up. While it would be Bell's right not to report to training camp if he hasn't signed his franchise tag tender by then, he really doesn't stand to gain anything by holding out being as the deadline for a new deal will have passed.

Janot diz que aceitará 'com naturalidade' caso Câmara barre denúncia
No 1º passo da denúncia no Legislativo, a apreciação pela CCJ (Comissão de Constituição e Justiça) da Câmara, o governo venceu. O STF (Supremo Tribunal Federal) só pode julgar o presidente da República com aval dos deputados.

Pittsburgh must reach a multi-year agreement with Bell by 4 p.m. Monday.
