Latest NewsSteelers | Trainer refutes Le'Veon Bell's weight gain (Fri Feb 22, 01:46 AM) - Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's trainer shot down reports that Bell ballooned to as much as 260 pounds during the 2018 season, calling such assertions 'ridiculous' and 'laughable.' Our View: Reports indicated the 'word on the street' was that Bell had gained a lot of weight. His trainer takes issues with those rumblings. Either way, we're sure Bell will be able to get into shape quickly. The trainer also told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero that Bell will follow the same plan this year as they have every other year since the running back came out of college in 2013.

Our View: This is a higher number than other reports out there have speculated. Those reports say Bell is said to be looking for $48 million over the first three years of any deal he gets this offseason.
link to story Jets | Le'Veon Bell's weight a concern to Jets (Wed Feb 20, 04:34 PM) - Free-agent RB Le'Veon Bell (Steelers) reportedly weighed around 260 pounds during his year off from football. The Jets are fairly concerned about the shape Bell is in after he played at 225 pounds in 2017. Our View: New York is considered to be one of the front-runners to sign Bell this offseason. Despite the weight issue, the Jets will add him for the right price. The Jets currently boast the second largest salary cap heading into the offseason behind the Indianapolis Colts.
link to story Steelers | Le'Veon Bell will not be tagged (Wed Feb 20, 01:30 PM) - Updating an ongoing saga, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will not be the recipient of the transition tag, according to general manager Kevin Colbert, Wednesday, Feb. 20. Bell will hit the open market in March. Our View: Colbert put to bed any speculation that the team would transition tag Bell, citing a lack of space in the salary cap and how the team already is set at the position with James Conner and Jaylen Samuels. Bell will hit the open market free and clear....and he should have quite a bit of interest from teams.
link to story Steelers | Le'Veon Bell not expected to get tagged (Tue Feb 19, 12:16 AM) - Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is unlikely to receive a franchise or transition tag from the team, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Our View: This report contradicts what other beat writers around the team are saying. Fowler is as connected as you can get to the Steelers and he feels the NFLPA would "argue such a move violates the spirit of the tag and the collective bargaining agreement." Stay tuned.
