Le’Veon Bell Wants To Remain In Pittsburgh


After wrapping up the AFC North last week in dramatic fashion against rival Baltimore, the Pittsburgh Steelers are locked into the three seed. Nothing that happens this Sunday versus Cleveland will change that seeding.

As the Steelers prepare for a playoff run, they’ll have some business to handle in the offseason concerning All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell, who’s rookie contract is set to expire.

“Obviously, I want to be a Pittsburgh Steeler so obviously we’re going to try to do everything it takes to make that happen,” Bell stressed.

The likely scenario is for Pittsburgh to place the one-year franchise tag on Bell, as they negotiate a long-term deal down the road.
