Running back Le'Veon Bell signs tender with Steelers

Running back Le'Veon Bell signs tender with Steelers

While many around the country had the day off from work, for Bell, it was a back-to-work day.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell put a priority on his health when he chose to skip nearly all of his team's offseason activities in preparation for the 2017 regular season. And then he was asked whether he was in "football shape". "I felt like it rhymed better, so I kept going". "I feel like I did a lot of training".

"I feel good", Bell told NFL Network". Today it was a little different. "But obviously, I am excited about this year and I am ready to move forward".

Last season Bell played in 12 games and carried the ball 261 times for 1,268 yards and seven touchdowns. His 157 yards per game was the third-highest total in National Football League history.

The 25-year old has plenty to play for, as he will be taking the field on a one-year franchise tender as he hopes to work out a long-term deal with the Steelers next summer.

"Football is more than just a sport", said Bell. "There is business behind it so there's no hard feelings". I'd bet he'll get the chance to find out in 2018. His performance earned him an invitation to the Pro Bowl and the title of the outstanding player of the Steelers. He assured reporters he'd be ready for the season opener on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. "It's exciting to have him here".

Thomas was traded to Boston back in 2015, and nearly immediately, the city fell in love with him. I took in that moment because it really meant something and it was the start of something new.

"We'll see", he said.

Bell sounds like a player eager to put up obscene numbers once again.

And that's despite Bell missing 10 games and suffering a season-ending torn MCL in 2015. In his senior season with the Razorbacks, he completed 65.9 percent of his passes for 3,440 yards, 30 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He added 616 yards and two major by air. A groin injury rendered him a spectator for most of a lopsided loss at New England, leading to offseason surgery to fix the problem.

-The Philadelphia Eagles shored up their offensive line as well, signing guard Chance Warmack to a one year contract extension that could be worth up to $5 million. I understand I'm on a one-year deal, so I have to prepare and play football.

"I am happy to be here", said Bell. "I've got to go out there and prove myself, stay healthy, stay on the field, the rest will take care of itself". My rookie year I got hurt in camp, so I didn't want to deal with it. "I want to go out here and get ready for game one, games that count".

Brock Osweiler passed his physical and signed his contract to return to Denver after an 18-month odyssey that included dismissals by the Texans and Browns but also a $37 million windfall.
