According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert confirmed on Wednesday that the team will not be using any kind of tag on running back Le’Veon Bell.
There had been speculation that Pittsburgh would use a transition tag to then attempt to trade him. That is not the case.
Bell will become an unrestricted free agent on March 13th.
Steelers are not tagging Le'Veon Bell, according to GM Kevin Colbert: "Le’Veon is still a great player. We can’t afford to use any other type of tags. Le’Veon will be an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year."

The Le’Veon Bell sweepstakes is about to be on. The Steelers appear to be cleaning out all of their problems. They’ve agreed to trade Antonio Brown and now they’re letting Bell walk.
No more drama in Pittsburgh, right?
We’ll see about that. Mike Tomlin seems to really enjoy it, because he does almost nothing about it.
