Le'Veon Bell's long-term contract negotiations with Steelers down to wire

We don't know if running back Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers are going to get a deal done by today's 4 p.m. deadline for long-term contracts for franchise-tagged players. There does not seem to be much optimism about a long-term deal, but Bell at least has a shot unlike Kirk Cousins and Rams CB Trumaine Johnson. If the two sides don't come to terms on a multi-year contract, Bell is unable to sign a contract longer than one year until the season ends.

Bell obviously wants the most money over the longest time possible.

Since Bell has yet to sign his tender, he can skip training camp and mandatory meetings without penalty. That could have a negative effect on an offense that's been decimated by injuries and suspensions over the last three years. If the two sides can not come to an agreement, they will have to wait until after the season to negotiate a multiyear deal.
