Le’Veon Bell on failed Steelers negotiations: ‘I want to be valued’

8:08 PM ET

PITTSBURGH — Le’Veon Bell felt he would be settling if he took the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offer during franchise tag negotiations, the All-Pro running back told ESPN on Monday.

Bell was hopeful that a deal would be finalized by the 4 p.m. ET deadline but said the two sides weren’t particularly close. Bell confirmed that he will play on the $12.12 million franchise tag but isn’t sure when he’ll sign his tender or report to camp, which begins July 27.

“It’s a little frustrating, but it’s a business,” said Bell, who declined to comment on the particulars of the Steelers’ offer or his own projection of his worth. “I’m not in a rush to sign for something I’m not valued at, if I feel I’m worth more than what they are offering me.”

Without deal, Le’Veon Bell and Steelers prepare for 16-game standoff

Le’Veon Bell has said that he’s fine playing under the franchise tag as he and the Steelers couldn’t get a long-term deal done by Monday’s deadline.
