4 Steelers who must step up against the Panthers

If you've been paying attention to the Le'Veon Bell situation, then you may have noticed that there seems to be at least one new twist every day.

Despite the video, there was no indication Wednesday that Bell had visited the team's facility.

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.

That number is high enough that the team would likely either release Bell into free agency or place the transition tag on him. Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com reports that neither the Steelers nor the NFL is planning on making the franchise tender from this season carry over to next season, but Bell could miss out on benefits in relation to his pension and healthcare reimbursement that are connected to how many credited seasons a player has.

The newest twist came on Wednesday when Bell lashed out at his critics on Twitter.

It was indeed Bell and he is indeed back in Pittsburgh. & that's clearly on them ...

The talented running back tweeted Monday that he was leaving Miami, where he's spent most of his holdout, and was spotted playing pickup basketball at an L.A. Fitness club in North Pittsburgh on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

The Steelers placed the franchise tag on him for the second straight year last March and failed to reach a long-time deal by the summer time deadline. "Also if you're really finding the time to figure out what I'm saying, you've proved my point". Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, Bell must report to the Steelers by 4 p.m. ET next Tuesday or he will be ineligible for the remainder of the season, a source confirmed to ESPN.
