Agent Adisa Bakari hinted that Bell might be willing to wait it out longer.

Bell hasn't signed his $14.5 million franchise tag and can become a free agent in 2019 as long as he signs it by Week 11. The team hoped he would show up for work this week, but he's staying away.

"He's going to do the things necessary to protect his value long-term," Bakari told NFL Live in an appearance Wednesday.

Bakari also appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio, where he asked what the Steelers' plans are for Bell and alluded to workload becoming an issue.

The way Steelers players are talking about Le'Veon Bell is extremely rare. Guys almost never call out teammates especially when they know it's a business decision.

Doesn't speak very well about how they feel about him.

I like that the OL calling him out personally. Be funny if they did the old oley few times in game when he touches the ball just to remind him.

it would be fun to just see him get absolutely crushed on his first carry as the O-Line simply parts like the swinging doors on an old saloon

I really don't understand Bell's motivations here ... he is on a solid contending team, has a megabucks contract, and should be happy and grateful for his situation instead of being some whining selfish bitch

He wants control over his future, for the first fucking time in his career. He's never had a say at all. Why is everyone always do quick to side with the billionaires?

maybe I'm missing something

I don't see how calling someone out for spitting on a $14.5 million 1 year deal, with free agency to follow, is siding with the owners

Because the billionaires took the risk to start the league and assume the risk to keep it going
Because if every player was allowed to dictate where and when they played, there wouldn't be a league
Because Bell knew what he was getting into when he signed up to play in the league
Because the players that represent Bell agreed to the Franchise tag in collective bargaining

Two 2nd round picks seems right.

Who’s siding with anyone? This is the contract situation his union collectively bargained. And he’s taking that contract situation and being just a flaming douche about it.
