Le'Veon Bell reports to Steelers on Friday

Dan Rooney

Bell seemingly wants $15 million a year while the Steelers reported best offer came in around $13 million. Whether he officially signed his $12.1 million franchise tender is not confirmed, though that is the expectation.

Bell has since left the building.

Bell considered returning Monday because the team is off Friday through Sunday but opted to stick with his original plan. He'll have four practices and one walk-through to get ready for the Cleveland Browns on September 10.

Instead, the running back said he'll report to the team this week, where he's expected to sign his $12.1 million franchise tender.

Bell rushed for 1,268 yards and seven touchdowns last season, and caught 75 passes for 616 yards and two TDs.

All of this backstory leads to a tweet from Bell on Thursday.

The Steelers will be ready for Bell's return.

"AB, yeah, I see ya'll cuz", Bell said in a video posted on social media, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Just this week alone, the Steelers traded for 49ers tight end Vance McDonald, signed cornerback Joe Haden after his release from the Browns, and then general manager Kevin Colbert received an extension. Still, the team never considered rescinding Bell's tender. "That hasn't changed. In reality, all we're dealing with is 2017".
