Le'Veon Bell Fails To Show Up For First Day Of Camp

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers and left tackle Alejandro Villanueva have agreed to a four-year contract that will keep the former Army Ranger protecting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's blindside for the rest of the decade. Bell's one-year tender is worth $12.1 million, fully guaranteed.

Many holdouts have the goal of negotiating a new contract, but the Steelers can't give Bell a new deal after failing to reach a long-term deal prior to the July 17 deadline. Considering there are 14 players at Villanueva's position that make at least $10 million per season, it was always going to take a much more substantial offer for Pittsburgh to appease Villanueva.

The Steelers had their first training camp practice on Thursday, and fans and media were waiting forever to see their favorite stars arrive at the team's practice.

Here's National Football League superstar Antonio Brown arriving at Steelers training camp Thursday in the most boss way possible - in a classic 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom. with a freakin' personal chauffeur! He went back into military service before inking a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles to play defensive end in 2014.

The Steelers signed Villanueva to their practice squad in August 2014 after the Eagles waived him.

Bell, 25, averaged 105.7 rushing yards and 51.3 receiving yards per game last season after starting the year with a three-game suspension.
