Le'Veon Bell hasn't talked to Steelers, unlikely to report this week

Le'Veon Bell hasn't talked to Steelers, unlikely to report this week

If Bell wants to play football in 2018, he has to report to the team by November 13, and with just over one week to go until that deadline, Bell sent out a cryptic tweet on Monday that may or may not indicate that he's now headed for Pittsburgh. Bell sent out a cryptic tweet saying goodbye to Miami and several of his crew have sent out Instagram videos from Pittsburgh Monday evening. Right now, that's unclear. Since he's been gone, the Steelers have gone through stretches of dysfunctional play, but overall it's been okay in 2018; they sit atop the AFC North with a 4-2-1 record, which doesn't reflect the strides they've taken on and off the field in Le'Veon Bell's absence.

What impact Bell will have on the Steelers for the rest of the season remains to be seen, as he's been away from the team all year, and there's bound to be bad blood between he and the teammates he's left behind during his South Beach holiday. "So we just put our best foot forward and try to do the best for this team". That's despite not having All-Pro back Le'Veon Bell.

"You know, we haven't spent a lot of time focused on it, because it's not within our control", Tomlin said.

Bell does not have to report to the Steelers by a certain date to get an accrued season to become eligible for free agency, contrary to what ESPN and others previously reported.

Steelers offensive lineman David DeCastro also seemed pretty exhausted of talking about the situation.

"Why waste more energy on it?"

"Honestly, no one cares anymore", DeCastro said on Sunday, via NFL.com. I have to block some of the best players on the best defense in the world.

The question, of course, is do the Steelers really need Bell?

The Steelers are set to play the Panthers on Thursday night.
