Le'Veon Bell celebrates after Steelers elect to pass on franchise tag

In response, Bell sat out the entire 2018 season, forcing the team to turn to James Conner as its primary running back. Bell ended up sitting out all of last season during a contract dispute and the Steelers finally came to the conclusion that he wasn't worth the tag.

"We're not going to move a significant player for less than significant compensation", Colbert said. "We can't afford to use any other type of tags", Colbert said, via ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Le'Veon Bell's Pittsburgh Steelers tenure appears to be over.

Then there's this: Word on the street is that Bell, who's playing weight is about 225 pounds, ballooned to around 260 pounds during year-long hiatus.

He will be the top free agent running back on a market also expected to include players like Mark Ingram, Tevin Coleman, C.J. Anderson, Jay Ajayi and Adrian Peterson. The other idea rumored had been that Pittsburgh might use the transition tag as a potential mechanism to trade Bell and thus receive immediate compensation for the running back, which would have been exceedingly hard to pull off. Pittsburgh is in line to receive a compensatory draft pick in 2020 once Bell leaves in free agency.

"Respectfully, we did agree to look into a trade [and it] would probably be the best course of action for both sides". According to Colbert, the team is willing to shop Brown to see about trading Brown but it was clear from his comments this isn't a done deal by any means. I sense that there's a small chance that the Jets would be able to make this trade happen. Those are a few of the biggest factors we used in paring down the five most logical trade destinations for the perennial Pro Bowler and surefire future Hall of Famer.
