Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell appeared bemused after Monday’s franchise tag deadline passed without him receiving a long-term contract.

Bell is scheduled to play the upcoming season on a one-year, $12.12-million contract, which would make him the NFL’s highest-paid running back in 2017.

The Steelers’ superstar took to Snapchat an hour after the deadline passed, and didn’t appear thrilled about his contract status.

“I gotta get better apparently,” Bell said with a smile.

One of the NFL’s best running backs, the Steelers will likely try to reach a long-term contract with Bell following the conclusion of the 2017 season.

Bell later echoed the similar sentiment on Twitter.
