Le'Veon Bell Isn't Being Subtle

In any case, when he shows up on the field, he'll be paid $12.1 million dollars thanks to the the NFL's franchise-tag option. Fellow NFL.com reporter Ian Rapoport adds Bell that is expected to sign his franchise tender, one that has not been enhanced. However, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley apparently think he's worth even more than that.

Bell skipped training camp and all four preseason games in a contract dispute sparked when the two sides failed on an 11th-hour attempt for a long-term contract agreement July 15.

Le'Veon Bell's reply to a Twitter user who asked him a fantasy-geared question about his return to the Pittsburgh Steelers turned out to be a serious response. Team brass did not indicate whether or not Bell signed his tender. He could not be fined for these absences because he had not signed the tender, nor could he negotiate for a longer or higher paying deal this season.

"I'm arguably the top running back in the National Football League and the No. 2 receiver on the Steelers, even though I play running back", Bell said, via ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. The 25-year-old wants to be compensated in line with his standing as the team's top runner and number two receiver.

On Friday the uber-talented dual-threat returned to an offense poised to put up big numbers in 2017.
