If he's franchised again next year, Bell should receive a salary in the neighborhood of $14.5 million.

"I hope it doesn't come to that, but I would definitely consider it", Bell said of sitting out next season if he can't sign a long-term deal.

Bell suggested that he's prepared to sit out next season, or possibly even retire, if the Steelers use their franchise tag on him for the second straight year, ESPN.com reports.

Team and player will face a similar dance whenever this season ends.

The Winning €39m Euromillions Ticket Was Sold In DUBLIN
Dolores McNamara, from Limerick, was Ireland's first and biggest EuroMillions victor scooping over £102 million in 2005. The victor , who is remaining anonymous for now, can expect to pick up their cheque within the next fortnight.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora has been reporting for months now Bell is all but certain to get hit with the tag this offseason.

The team did have a long-term offer on the table until July 18, the deadline for franchise player designees to avoid playing this season under the tag by inking a different deal. This puts the front office in a potentially hard position, as the franchise tag could be used as a base point for working toward a new contract.

Le'Veon Bell might be the most versatile running back in football in the prime of his career right now.

In averaging 19.9 FanDuel points per game, Bell ran for 1,291 yards and 9 touchdowns in 2017. He was also highly impactful as a receiver out of the backfield, leading all running backs with a career-high 85 catches for 655 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

"I've made a lot of money, I'm happy where I'm at, I've got a good family - I don't really need to play football", Bell told ESPN.

Bell said he would "probably" walk away from the game if he skipped 2018. These comments went viral, and Bell took to Twitter in an attempt to defuse the situation. I'm not going to settle for anything", Bell said. "I know what I do and what I bring to the table. "They tag me again, it will be me (saying), 'OK, do I want to play on the tag or do I not want to play on the tag?' That's what it comes down to. I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at". Now, I've done everything but own a Super Bowl. If he gets tagged and doesn't get to test free agency, then things might get sticky. "Right now, I'm just kind of doing it because I love it".

He added: "I don't necessarily care about the money aspect of it".
