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 been in Miami working out this season but did leave Monday to head to Pittsburgh.
It feels as though a change of scenery is what's best for Bell at this point, but an interested team clearly must be willing to open up its wallet pretty wide.
The Steelers running back, idle all season after refusing to sign his $14.5 million franchise-tag tender, posted two tweets - both in upside down text - on Wednesday in which he defended his holdout and refused to apologize to teammates or fans.
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. As Kaboly noted, the Steelers are most likely not going to tag him at such an enormous number, which would virtually make him a free agent.

If Bell is designated on a third-year franchise tag, it would be worth around $25 million, which would be one of the highest contracts in the NFL.
The Athletic reported a month ago that Bell would qualify as a third franchise tag even if he didn't show by the deadline.

But seriously, though. How do you do that upside-down thing on Twitter?
