Steelers GM Kevin Colbert: Le’Veon Bell Will Be A Free Agent

Colts Mike Mitchell vouches for Antonio Brown

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 can't afford to use any other type of tags", Colbert said, via ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Bell is free to go wherever he wants.

Steelers are not tagging Le'Veon Bell, according to GM Kevin Colbert: "Le'Veon is still a great player".

Bell, who turned 27 on Monday, rushed for 5,336 yards and 35 touchdowns over five seasons with the Steelers, while also catching 312 passes for 2,660 yards and seven touchdowns. Some have speculated that the disgruntled receiver was intentionally causing a rift between himself and his current team to force a move by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

As of March 13, the first day of the new league year, Bell will hit free agency for the first time in his career.

Leading up to Colbert's announcement, the value of a transition tag for Bell and how the Steelers might apply it were up for debate. I sense that there's a small chance that the Jets would be able to make this trade happen. "Respectfully, we did agree [that looking] into a trade would probably be the best course of action for both sides".

Team president Art Rooney II spent 20-to-30 minutes with Brown in South Florida on Tuesday to discuss Brown's situation, Colbert said. "We're not going to move a significant player for less than significant compensation".

Colbert told reporters that the Steelers weren't yet engaged in trade talks, but he expected they would pick up.
