Le'Veon Bell back in Pittsburgh but no word on meeting team

Which member of the Panthers would you want on the Steelers

Bell must sign his franchise tender or sign a one-year deal with the team ahead of the November 13 deadline in order to retain his eligibility for this season.

Le'Veon Bell has still not reported to the Steelers to sign his franchise tender for the 2018 season.

Bell must report to the team by Tuesday - Week 11, before the Steelers' matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars (Sunday, Nov. 18) - or he forfeits the season.

Clearly, based on this report, that doesn't mean he'll be returning to the team.

AMD beats Nvidia to the 7nm GPU finish line
AMD is also the first to hit PCIe 4.0 on the Radeon Instinct MI60, with 64GB/sec of bi-directional CPU-to-GPU bandwidth. AMD's Next Horizon event this week detailed elements of its 7nm production schedule for both graphics cards and CPUs.

Bell said the Steelers told him they plan to place the transition tag on him this offseason, and a source confirmed to ESPN that the tag would be worth approximately $9 million to $10 million. According to NFL.com's Tom Pelissero that salary would be more than $25 million next season. As Kaboly noted, the Steelers are most likely not going to tag him at such an enormous number, which would virtually make him a free agent. If the Steelers match, regardless of the offer, Bell would have to sign that deal with Pittsburgh. If that situation were to happen and Bell was under the non-exclusive tag, the Steelers would receive two first-round picks for losing Bell.

If Bell fails to report, the transition tag would be around $14.5 million, or 120 percent of his $12.1 million franchise tag from 2017, since that's the past year he played.

He rushed for 1,291 yards with nine touchdowns over 15 games in 2017 with the Steelers, his fifth year in Pittsburgh.

Bell has been in Miami working out this season but did leave Monday to head to Pittsburgh.
