Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell forfeits $855,000 as holdout continues

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell forfeits $855,000 as holdout continues

Le'Veon Bell watched the team from whom he's holding out tie - yes, tie - in Cleveland on Sunday, the Steelers beginning the season with a 21-21 draw.

For a guy who insists he needs more money, he sure doesn't seem to be desperate to earn close to $1 million.

While it's clear some of Bell's teammates are pissed he has yet to report to camp, other current and former athletes have shown him support, including Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown. Bell most likely found motivation from megadeals signed by Todd Gurley, Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack - all of which came after Bell's failed extension negotiations in mid-July.

The Steelers assigned their franchise tag to Bell for the second consecutive year, handing him a one-year deal among the richest for any league rusher at $14.45m.

Many have speculated that Bell will move to a new city following this season, and recent developments have only reinforced this theory.

Obviously, this was Bell scrutinizing what happened in the game, and may have been a reference to James Conner's brutal fourth-quarter fumble which helped spring the Browns' comeback.

Without Bell, the team did not win, but it's hard to blame the running game.
