OK, the Le’Veon Bell story just got turned upside-down

OK, the Le’Veon Bell story just got turned upside-down

Bell has been in Miami working out this season but did leave Monday to head to Pittsburgh.

Le'Veon Bell #26 of the Pittsburgh Steelers looks on against the Jacksonville Jaguars during the first half of the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Heinz Field on January 14, 2018 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. While there apparently was no meeting between Bell and the Steelers on Wednesday, the three-time Pro Bowl selection did shed some light on his situation with a pair of unorthodox tweets. Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, Bell must report to the Steelers by 4 p.m. ET next Tuesday or he will be ineligible for the remainder of the season, a source confirmed to ESPN.

Le'Veon Bell is in Pittsburgh, but that doesn't mean he will be reporting for work anytime soon, or anytime at all.

Bell has played his holdout strategy close to the vest all season and continues to do so.

After all, Hearthstone has become one of the studio's most popular and competitive titles regardless of it being a mobile game . At the time, fans of Diablo have been left scratching their heads wondering why they didn't at least acknowledge Diablo 4 .

Bell does not have to report to the Steelers by a certain date to get an accrued season to become eligible for free agency, contrary to what ESPN and others previously reported.

"Just about everybody has an opinion on my life & anxious about what i'm doing, " Bell wrote with a 180-degree twist that was perhaps partially explained when he added, "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..." Don't judge me off my decisions because maybe this isn't what you'd do.

Bell would surrender the final $6.84 million of his salary if he elects not to sign the franchise tender.

Pittsburgh is 5-2-1 on the season and sit first in the AFC North, while Bell's replacement, James Conner, sits second in the National Football League in rushing yards.
