Le'Veon Bell not reporting to Steelers, sitting out season

Through nine games, the 28-year-old has totaled 112 carries for 396 yards and one touchdown while catching 35 passes for 270 yards and one additional score. Conner sustained a head injury in the Steelers' Week 10 win over the Carolina Panthers but, according to reports, the Steelers are confident he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Bell's been tearin' it up on jet skis and in nightclubs during his time away from the squad - but most, including the team's owner, expected him to be back with the team today. It's been a long, extended staring contest between the star running back and the franchise.

His ability to put his hand on the back of an offensive lineman while waiting for the hole to open - much like a child sticking close to a parent in a crowded store - helps him make the remarkably hard at times look remarkably easy.

"So be it", Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said a couple hours before the deadline, via NFL.com.

"So be it", Tomlin said.

The Patriots also had allowed only 13 sacks this season coming in, yet allowed a season-high three sacks to the Titans who also hit Brady six other times.

The makeover relied heavily on Bell, whose patient running style became his trademark while helping Pittsburgh to four straight playoff berths.

Once again, the Steelers franchise-tagged Bell after the season. Bell held out the entire summer as the two sides failed to agree to an extension. That's when he has to report to the Pittsburgh Steelers or lose his eligibility for the season.

The team has been largely quiet but it seemed cautiously optimistic Bell would find his way back to the Steelers but it never materialized.

It really should come as no shock to anyone that Bell intends to sit out. He returned to Pittsburgh last week and even played some pickup basketball at a fitness center.

So, the Steelers and Bell wasted their time and ours.

Bell could again play another National Football League game in a Steelers uniform, but the scenario is unlikely for a myriad of reasons.
