Ben Roethlisberger Texted Le'Veon Before Bell's No-show, No Response

Le'Veon

The Pittsburgh Steelers are finally sure that Le'Veon Bell will not be part of the team this season, or likely ever again, because Bell failed to sign his franchise tag by this week's deadline.

Add a locker's worth of gear to the $14.5 million franchise tag that went unsigned, adding to a costly season for Le'Veon Bell. "He was a great teammate, a great football player".

Meanwhile, his former team is now riding a five game winning streak that has them sitting atop the AFC North with a 6-2-1 record.

"To each their own on what they want to walk away from", he said.

Earlier in the day Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he sent Bell a text before yesterday's 4 p.m. deadline but never heard back.

Bell, one of the top running backs in the National Football League, will be healthy for his free agency and should be able to recoup his cleat losses.

The running back's locker remained intact and untouched during his holdout.

"Appreciate the cleats, my guy", Bud Dupree said while takin' his new Js.

Roethlisberger said his sole focus is Sunday's game against Jacksonville, which is arguably the biggest challenge of the year for the Steelers' offense.

Taking the financial implications out of it, Roethlisberger said it would be hard for him to sit out a season, particularly in the prime of his career. Being with them is kind of what keeps me coming back here, just so many years, too.
