Le’Veon Bell may not report by deadline after learning new information

A former National Football League running back has alleged that Adisa Bakari, the agent for Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, didn't understand until recently that Bell could receive a franchise-tag tender in excess of $25 million in 2019 even if he does not report this season.

If you've been paying attention to the Le'Veon Bell situation, then you may have noticed that there seems to be at least one new twist every day. Bell has sat out the first nine weeks of the regular season and has not signed his franchise tender for the season. There have mixed reports dating back to the preseason on when Bell would report to the team, with an expectation he would return to the team during their Week 7 bye. ESPN reports Bell was seen playing basketball at an L.A. Fitness club in the city Tuesday night. Bell has been working out in Miami this season, but on Monday he tweeted "Fairwell Miami" without further explanation. This could mean Bell chooses not to report by the November 13 deadline to play this season.

According to ESPN, despite the video, there is no indication Bell visited the Steelers' facility. He would be eligible to become a free agent in 2019 if the Steelers do not place a franchise tag on him for the third time.

Harry Kane reacts to Wayne Rooney taking back England captaincy
Ryan Giggs has backed the shock England return of former Manchester United colleague Wayne Rooney by applauding it as an opportunity to recognise an "iconic player".

That will definitely make Steelers fans feel for their star running back who hasn't played a game this year.

Just about everybody has an opinion on my life & anxious about what I'm doing.

On Wednesday night, Bell posted two messages on his Twitter account in upside-down text, saying in part that he's "not apologizing" for his holdout. But most people don't take the time to simply read between the lines and that's clearly on them.
