No Le'Veon Bell, no problem for James Conner and the Steelers

New reports indicate that Le’Veon Bell will not report to the Steelers by the Nov. 13 deadline. More

New reports indicate that Le’Veon Bell will not report to the Steelers by the Nov. 13 deadline. More

As the team and its fans await Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, by which Bell must report or be ineligible to play for the remainder of the season, it is worth remembering what the Pro Bowl back said in January.

Le'Veon Bell's season and days with the Steelers appear to be over.

Despite owner Art Rooney's recent comments anticipating Bell's return to the facility, the team is not expecting their star RB to play for them this season, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Theresa May says United Kingdom will not do Brexit deal at any cost
A British official speaking on the condition of anonymity said a November summit had begun to look like "a stretch". Disagreement over how to keep goods flowing across the Irish border is the main obstacle.

That's right, Le'Veon Bell is now expected to sit out of the entire season, as he refuses to report to the Steelers or sign his $14.5 million tender. Applying the franchise tag for the third time would pay the average of the top five quarterback salaries ($25 million) and the Steelers won't go that route, and they surely won't match an offer sheet from another team under the transition tag.

Bell sparked rumors that he's about to end his holdout when he tweeted that he's leaving Miami, where he spent most of his time during his still ongoing holdout, and getting spotted in Pittsburgh playing pickup basketball.

At that point, the question would be, how much, if any, would all the holdout drama hurt Bell's value in free agency?
