Le'Veon Bell back in Pittsburgh but no word on meeting team

4 Steelers who must step up against the Panthers

4 Steelers who must step up against the Panthers

There have mixed reports dating back to the preseason on when Bell would report to the team, with an expectation he would return to the team during their Week 7 bye.

Bell tweeted on Monday that he was leaving Miami, the place where he's.

After learning more about what his status would be for next season under the NFL's CBA, there's now a "real possibility" Le'Veon Bell won't report to the Pittsburgh Steeler by the franchise tag deadline of November 13.

Despite the video, there was no indication Wednesday that Bell had visited the team's facility.

It was college night and country two-step lessons were being offered Wednesday at the Borderline, according to its website. Garo Kuredjian said at a news conference early Thursday that a sheriff's deputy was also shot and taken to a hospital.

But despite Bell's tweet, the Steelers still haven't heard from him and their focus remains the same with the players and coaches in the building as they prepare for Thursday's game vs. Carolina, a source told ESPN. Whether or not he reports this season, the Steelers would need to use a $25 million franchise tag to keep him in 2019, which is not expected to happen. That is, if the Steelers decide to franchise tag him, which they might not even bother to do given the massive headache he's given them (and factoring in the emergence of James Conner).

According to Kaboly's source, a franchise tag for Bell this offseason would be considered the third whether the running back reports by the November 13 deadline or not.

The Steelers running back broke his silence Wednesday on Twitter, posting a pair of upside-down tweets as he aired his grievances amid his contract holdout. ". Don't judge me off my decisions because maybe this isn't what you'd do. but most people don't take the time to just simply read between the lines". Also, if you're really finding the time to figure out what I'm saying, you've proved my point.
