Bell's absence from the Steelers stems from his inability to secure a big-money, long-term contract. Now, the media outlet of which they own a 1/32nd share reports that the Steelers are "actively" shopping Bell. However, the two teams are not believed to have been in contact with one another to this point.
Bell received a $70 million offer from the Steelers this summer that included $17 million guaranteed. "But whenever your down - we only got six plays and we're down 14-0 - the game plan changes dramatically".
Thomas' injury highlighted the reason Bell has not reported to work and already left more than $3.4 million on the table by not signing his $14.54 million franchise tender - Bell would make $855,000 per game if he signs the franchise tag. "But I'm still holding out hope". "When I talk to them, I hope they get that side of it".
Now? After watching Kerryon Johnson impress through the first three weeks, including quenching the 100-yard rushing drought on national television, running back seems like much less of a need.

If asked for an opportunity to speak with Bell prior to consummation of a trade, sources said the Steelers would likely grant it. "I don't think they really want me gone". I'm doing it for guys behind me or guys who don't understand what's going on in the business of football. It was a little disappointing, but I understand their side. "The 22 years I've been playing football, I've always brought value". If Bell joined the team, it would cost the Steelers $11.3 million if they chose to use their transition tag, which is less that the franchise tag they used this year. The Eagles are reportedly interested in Bell, while the Jets and 49ers have "also made exploratory calls".
Bell said he's been training vigorously in South Florida.
Bell then responded: "smh exactly ... get right bro, bro @earl!" I feel strong, explosive, fast. "I'm a lot stronger than I was".
