The Steelers are going to look a lot different next year at two very key positions as—one day after agreeing it was bets to part ways with Antonio Brown—they announced yesterday that they will not tag running back Le'Veon Bell this year.
And Bell is celebrating.
Bell took to Twitter shortly after General Manager Kevin Colbert confirmed that the Steelers have no intention of tagging Bell again this year and will let him test unrestricted free agency.
“Free at last, Free at last, Thank God Almighty I am free at last,” Bell wrote.
Bell sat out the entire 2018 season after the Steelers put the franchise tag on him last year. On March 13, he’ll finally be able to do what he’s been wanting to do: Shop himself to the highest bidder.
The question now is just, how high will people be willing to go after seeing just how easily he was replaced in his own offense by James Conner?
