Le’Veon Bell explains what is behind his upside-down tweets

Reports from earlier in the season suggested Bell needed to sign with the team by November 13 if he wanted to retain his free agent eligibility following the season.

Le'Veon Bell has not had contact with the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, sources tell ESPN, and barring an unforeseen development in the next few days, is not expected to report to the team in time for Thursday night's game against the Panthers, increasing the possibility that the star running back will not play at all this season. He has lost $855,529 for very week he's missed so far. As a result, a third franchise tag from the Steelers would cost the team around $25 million.

It feels as though a change of scenery is what's best for Bell at this point, but an interested team clearly must be willing to open up its wallet pretty wide.

Bell faces a deadline of November 13 to report in order to play at all this season. Bell has made it clear over the past few months that he didn't sign the one-year franchise tender because he didn't want to risk his health, and on Wednesday, he stood by that decision.

The transition tag would allow Bell to negotiate with other teams and allow the Steelers to match any offer.

If you needed another update on where Pittsburgh Steelers running back is, we've got it for you. He could become a free agent in 2019 if the Steelers don't franchise him again. While there apparently was no meeting between Bell and the Steelers on Wednesday, the three-time Pro Bowl selection did shed some light on his situation with a pair of unorthodox tweets.

Pittsburgh is 5-2-1 on the season and sit first in the AFC North, while Bell's replacement, James Conner, sits second in the National Football League in rushing yards.
