Le'Veon Bell contends he still wants to retire a Steeler

Instagram saying

Le'Veon Bell remains away from the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are taking on the Baltimore Ravens on NBC's Sunday Night Football this evening. If he needed some validation for his strategy, though, it came Sunday, when the Seahawks' Earl Thomas, who skipped training camp and preseason games while demanding a contract extension that never came, broke his leg in a likely season-ending injury. "When I talk to them, I hope they get that side of it". Thomas' injury could make Bell more resolute in his decision.

The Pittsburgh Steelers running back reacted to broken leg the Seattle Seahawks safety suffered Sunday with a promise to "be the bad guy" on behalf of his fellow National Football League players.

Bell issued his vow on Instagram in the comments section of ESPN's post about Thomas being carted off the field.

He rushed for 1,291 yards with nine touchdowns over 15 games in 2017 with the Steelers, his fifth year in Pittsburgh. I don't know if everything Bell told Fowler was just lip service and an attempt to rally disgruntled fans back to him but it is hard to imagine Bell and the Steelers being able to fix the damage in this relationship.

Bell is not content with his contract, and wants a long-term deal which would provide greater financial security. So Bell could sit out as long as he can without losing an accrued season, so that he can enter free agency this offseason.

According to the report, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert is seeking at least a second-round draft pick and a "good" player in exchange for Bell.

The way Bell's holdout story contrasts with Thomas' perfectly illustrates why he has taken such a position and will continue to do so.
