Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell becomes an unrestricted free agent on March 9th.
In addition to talking about Antonio Brown's contract, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert addressed Bell's situation today, Bob Labriola of Steelers.com
“The tag is always an option, and it’s something we’ll use if necessary,” said Colbert. “We have until March 1 to make the decision. Again, this thing is very fluid. It changes daily, once you start into talks with players and start to see how it’s all going to fit. We know that’s an option. Even if we were to use the tag on Le’Veon, we would certainly want to do something long-term and have him be a member of the Steelers for life.”
“We’re in a different world. We’re always real close to the cap. I think we’re in a situation where we don’t have to make any moves to get into compliance with the cap.”Don't forget to follow us on Twitter at http://twitter.com/theredzoneorg
