The two-time All-Pro running back was set to make $14.5 million this season, but his decision to sit out the first nine weeks of the regular season have chipped away at how much he could actually make if he were to report to the team this season.

Le'Veon Bell has not had contact with the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, sources tell ESPN, and barring an unforeseen development in the next few days, is not expected to report to the team in time for Thursday night's game against the Panthers, increasing the possibility that the star running back will not play at all this season. Pittsburgh resident John Maus, who posted a video of Bell on his Snapchat story, said the subject in his video is "110 percent Le'Veon" and his video was shot live.

Bell would surrender the final $6.84 million of his salary if he elects not to sign the franchise tender. That gives Bell the ability to negotiate with other teams and the Steelers the right to match, which would essentially be the same as him hitting the free agent market. Teams can use the franchise tag on players up to three times, and it has been widely reported that this year will only count as one of those three if Bell reports and signs the tender.

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.

"A separate source has confirmed to The Athletic that next year's franchise tag would be the top five salaries in the league and not revert to the 2018 number even if Bell decides to skip the entire year", Kaboly wrote.

Bell begrudgingly played last season under the franchise tag, but declined to do so in 2018.

But seriously, though. How do you do that upside-down thing on Twitter?

"Just about everybody has an opinion on my life & anxious about what I'm doing", Bell wrote. & that's clearly on them.
