Steelers search new offers for Massive Ben, Bell

Ryan Shazier will be part of Steelers in 2018 in 'one way or the other'

Regardless, Steelers owner Art Rooney II says that Shazier will have a role with the team no matter what next season.

Le'Veon Bell has spent the past couple years dancing with his club, the Pittsburgh Steelers, trying his best to get a long-term deal signed.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wee accused of looking ahead to the New England Patriots a few times this past season and several fans and analysts still want to place most of the blame for that allegedly happening on head coach Mike Tomlin and as a result of his interview with Tony Dungy which took place ahead of his team's Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers.

While we are all certainly hopeful that Shazier will be able to get back on the gridiron at some point, the fact that his life appears to be regaining some degree of normalcy is the most important factor here.

Signing Roethlisberger and Bell, who will be a free agent if he isn't franchise-tagged for the second consecutive year, would keep the Steelers' Killer B's trio of Bell, Roethlisberger and intact.

"No, that's right, that's right", Rooney said. His condition was closely monitored but last week the 25-year-old was discharged by the hospital as an outpatient, though still wheelchair-bound.

Bell said at the Pro Bowl that the two sides are closer to a long-term contract than in July when the National Football League deadline passed without a signed contract.

The team's six Lombardi trophies are on display in the Rooney Library at the team's South Side headquarters. The bottom line is, can you come together and have a meeting of the minds?

Bell told ESPN at last month's Pro Bowl that completing a deal before February 20 - the first day that teams can designate franchise or transition tags - is "definitely a goal" for both parties. Roethlisberger's current contract runs through the 2019 season.

Last season was the first after the loss of the family's patriarch, Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney. That's what we've got to work on. "We'll do our best to see if we can get something done". The running back market, though, does affect negotiations, Rooney said. There were things that got done that I didn't think would get done and vice versa.

"It doesn't serve me any objective to react to that", Rooney said.
