NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala and Tom Pellissero are reporting that if Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell were to be franchise-tagged in 2019, it would be at the astronomical number of $25 million, which lines up with the figure for quarterbacks. Meanwhile, his teammates continue to express their frustration with the situation, with one unidentified player saying, "This Le'Veon thing is just a cloud over us at this point".

Bell is presumably referring to the people who believe that his decision to sit out more than half the season was a frightful idea. Bell has been working out in Miami this season, but on Monday he tweeted "Fairwell Miami" without further explanation.

According to ESPN, despite the video, there is no indication Bell visited the Steelers' facility.

The transition tag would allow Bell to negotiate with other teams and allow the Steelers to match any offer.

As mentioned, Bell is now in Pittsburgh and he was spotted playing pickup hoops at an L.A. Fitness in North Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

Pro Football Talk has been reporting that the Steelers could franchise tag Bell again this offseason for the second time if he doesn't report by November 13 at the same salary number of around $14.5 million, as the 2018 franchise tag would not count as one of the three the team can use on Bell.

If Bell fails to report, the transition tag would be around $14.5 million, or 120 percent of his $12.1 million franchise tag from 2017, since that's the past year he played.

That will definitely make Steelers fans feel for their star running back who hasn't played a game this year.
