Drawing from my own NFL experiences and assessing Bell's current standing in this league, I think the three-time Pro Bowler has earned the right to receive a big payday - and sitting out until November 13 gives him the best opportunity to do that as a free agent next March. We are in win now mode in spite of Big Ben's desire to play beyond this current year. If Bell arrives in time to hop on is anyone's guess. With all of the touches he gets during the season he wants wide receiver money, but he stands to miss out on $852,941 each week that he's away from the team.
Bell is now refusing to sign his franchise tag, which would pay him $14.5 million this season. "We'll weigh all of those things at the appropriate time. Trust me. We still went out there and did 40 plays in practice and everything was good". He's chest bumping and all that.
"I think you can read in between those lines".
In 2017 under ex-coordinator Todd Haley, the Steelers' offense got a little stale at times in terms of the volume and versatility of personnel used. I know I would have, if I could do it all over again.
The Steelers and Bell are in this situation because, for the second straight year, the parties couldn't agree on Bell's worth before the July 16 deadline to reach a long-term deal with franchise-tagged players.

Toyota Motor Corp. halted operations at most of its group plants, and Honda Motor Co. stopped its Suzuka plant in Mie prefecture. Some parts are likely to see up to 300mm of rain fall in a 24 hour period with winds gusting up to 216 kilometres per hour.
Deputy shoots suspect at Del Mar Fairgrounds
Shocking footage caught the moment commentators screamed "there's gun fire at the track" and a jockey was flung from his horse. As is our special events protocol, substantial law enforcement and private security was on site in anticipation of the event.
Bell has not stepped foot in the Steelers' facilities in nearly eight months. It's exactly the type of coaching and relationship-building Bradshaw disdains that players gravitate toward.
Always something interesting going on with the Steelers, who navigated their weekly drama a year ago to a 13-3 record but saw their season fall apart following a controversial loss to the Patriots that cost them home-field advantage in the playoffs and the postseason loss to the Jaguars a month later.
"I ask these young guys if they are nervous and they tell me no and I call them a liar because if I am 15 years in and nervous you should be nervous too", said Roethlisberger.
Tomlin met Haden and his parents during the 2010 pre-draft process, but the Browns would draft Haden seventh overall and the Steelers would take Pouncey, his Florida teammate, with the 18th pick. The former Pitt star is in line to make his first National Football League start on Sunday and he's not too concerned about the circumstances that made it happen.
Conner is a must-add in all fantasy football formats, and not just as a handcuff to Bell. He gives it to you blood-raw.
