    Yup, some are taking it as he is heading to Pittsburgh - but the source ESPN quoted from a "friend" says he was saying he is done training for this year....

    Who knows, we will know all by next tuesday.

    One more update, IF he does not play at all, the Steelers Can once again FT him at roughly the same price as this year, as opposed to the transition tag. So him not playing at all has less value. Then again, if they tag him again, he can do this again..so not sure where that would help.

    Someone should simply give him a gold watch and let him ride off into the sunset.

    Pittsburgh doesn't seem to be missing him much.

    another new twist, Now multiple sites are saying something in the Collective Bargaining agreement will keep Pittsburgh from being able to place FT on him again next year, and that even if he does not play, the team would be forced to act like 3rd year tag was placed. Again rumors flying he won't show up at all this year.

    So the guy sits all season and then comes back next season will he have lost anything from his game? I think so.

    CBA rules for Bell per PFT:
    If he were to report:
    So I don't expect to see Mr. Bell this season

    Makes me feel stupid that I didn’t draft Conner in every league.

    Bell was spotted and photographed playing basketball at a gym in Pittsburgh Tuesday night. At least he's getting closer:

    So, per PFT an NFL representative has been recorded as saying that IF Bell does not report this year, he CANNOT be tagged as a 2nd FT tag, but would have to be FTed like it was his third tag. So IF Pittsburgh wants to keep him, it will be by transition tag to get value in picks, or let him walk FA and try to get compensatory picks.

    He'll never be the same if he leaves Pittsburgh.

    That's the truth.

    I think that will depend on where he lands.

    and you can book it now, he won't be back in Pittsburgh. That ship has sailed. He will be a FA, as they can't afford to FT him a 3rd time, and NFL has said it will count as 3rd time.
