Le'Veon Bell expected to skip Steelers' training camp

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is expected to hold out of training camp if he doesn't get a new deal before the July 16 extension deadline, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

What It Means:

Bell held out until September last season and will likely do so again as the two sides are far apart in talks for a long-term deal. The running back has yet to sign his franchise tender worth $14.5M as he looks for $17M per on a multi-year contract.

Our models project Bell to finish as the top running back in fantasy leagues as he totals 2,061.7 yards and 12.9 touchdowns on 396.7 touches in 2018.
