Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is still holding out, refusing to sign his franchise tag. He has no intention of signing the franchise tag before the final six games, when he will be credited for an entire season and still be eligible to become a free agent after the season.
FOX decided to troll the star running back with a Sarah McLachlan “SPCA” style commercial.

Bell isn’t going to sweat this much. He’s not taking the wear and tear of carrying the load for a team, who doesn’t want to sign him long-term, to keep himself fresh for a team that does.
Steelers fans don’t love it, but it makes sense for Bell.
