After weeks of speculation that the Pittsburgh Steelers might use the transition tag on Bell in an effort to facilitate a trade, we know that isn’t going to happen.
Rumors have been surfacing about his apparent weight gain from not playing last season.
Now it appears Le’Veon Bell has enough of the rumors, and went to IG live to say he’s ready, and mock his reported new weight.
As NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported in July, Bell turned down a five-year, $70 million contract from the Steelers that included $33 million in guarantees.
It’s believed he’s looking for a deal that exceeds the $14.38 million in average annual salary and $45 million in guarantees that Todd Gurley got from the Los Angeles Rams.
A year off from football is a big deal.
