The Steelers placed the franchise tag on Bell, who did not sign the tender. If Bell and the Steelers can’t come to an agreement before July 17, the two-time Pro Bowler will play on a one-year deal worth $12.1 million.
Bell appears content with whichever outcome arises.
“I’m good with everything, just taking it day to day for real,” Bell said to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Fowler notes that Bell is the lone player who hasn’t signed their tender or reached a long-term contract.
In any event, Bell will be one of the focal points of the Steelers’ formidable offense as they seek to dethrone the New England Patriots.
