For the second season in a row, Bell has been hit with the Franchise tag just hours before the tag deadline. He still has until July 16th to work out a deal to stay in for the long haul.
Great to see that he will be sticking around. He had some kind words for #Pittsburgh Monday evening on his Twitter account. See below.

Pittsburgh: the city that took in a 21-year old kid from small-town Ohio, the city I battled thru adversity in, the city that I became a man in. I love everything about being a Pittsburgh Steeler, and I want nothing more than to finish the rest of my career in Pitt! #26Forever pic.twitter.com/mhs2ikpK71— Le'Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) March 6, 2018
