Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell's tentative plan is to miss training camp but to be ready for the regular season in Week 1, according to sources. As expected, Bell missing any regular season games would be a shock, and the Steelers expect him to play a full season. With Bell on another one-year franchise tag, it wouldn't make sense for him to skip any games and damage his potential value heading into free agency. He has more incentive to produce in what could be his last year with the Steelers, and he is the consensus No. 1 pick in fantasy drafts.

According to a report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Pittsburgh Steelers offered running back Le'Veon Bell a five-year, $70 million contract ahead of the July 16 deadline for the two sides to work out an extension. Rapoport went on to report that $30 million of that contract would come over the next two years. That extremely large sum of money, which would have made Bell the highest-paid running back in the league, was not enough to convince the All-Pro to sign the contract extension. Bell will instead earn $14.5 million under the franchise tag in 2018, which could be his final season in Pittsburgh.

After failing to reach a long-term extension ahead of the deadline on Monday, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell's agent, Adisa Bakari, said that 2018 will likely be his client's last with the Steelers. "His intention was to retire as a Steeler," Bakari told ESPN's Adam Schefter. "But now that there's no deal, the practical reality is, this now likely will be Le'Veon's last season as a Steeler." Bell will play the second straight year under the franchise tag and will expectedly hold out of training camp and the preseason. It won't affect his fantasy value going into the year, though, as he's still the best option for the No. 1 overall pick in drafts.
