Le'Veon Bell is ready (physically) for the start of training camp

Le'Veon Bell fully healthy for start of training camp, but will he attend?

Le'Veon Bell fully healthy for start of training camp, but will he attend?

The deadline for the Pittsburgh Steelers to sign running back Le'Veon Bell to a long-term contract extension is nearly 24 hours away and while anything can certainly happen between now and Monday's 4PM EST cutoff, it doesn't appear as though the two sides are close to a deal at the time of this post. However, the star running back has yet to sign his franchise tender and is not under contract with the team. While he has been recovering all offseason from groin surgery, Bell made a decision to stay away from most of the team's offseason practices and mandatory minicamp, which wasn't mandatory for him being as he isn't now under contract.

Bell not signing the tag by 4 p.m. ET largely suggests a training camp holdout is imminent. The Steelers could also rescind the franchise tag and sign Bell to a one-year deal worth more than the tag would pay him, but that nearly certainly isn't going to happen.

If no deal is reached, the Steelers will have the option to use the franchise tag on Bell again in 2018. And without a new contract, there's always the chance he might not.
