Saturday, the Pittsburgh Steelers are on their way to Cleveland for the season opener, but Le’Veon Bell was not there. It is not totally unheard of, but very uncommon for a contract dispute to extend to the season, but Bell, running back for the Steelers, was a no-show for the Steeler’s week 1 game where they go against the Browns. Nonetheless, Week 1 is going to be a very exciting week for those who bet on sports, as seen by the number of wagers placed in priceperplayer.com.
This probably was not easy for Bell, since missing out on this will be costing him a whopping $855,000 payday. Without Bell, James Conner, a second year running back will be starting in the backfield. The Steelers also have Stevan Ridley and Jaylen Samuels as standby ground-gainers.
It would have been Bell’s second straight year for playing in the franchise tag for the Steelers. This is reportedly worth $14.45 million. However, Bell, an All-Pro running back still does not want to sign the deal. The deadline for Bell to sign and submit the contract was supposedly on Labor Day, but the holiday passed and the Steelers still don’t have Bell’s signature.
