Elite Kayvon Webster Jersey A few days before the Steelers lost to the Jaguars in the playoffs, Le’Veon Bell threatened to sit out the 2018 season or retire if the team placed the franchise tag on him for a second straight season.
Well, the Steelers placed the franchise tag on Bell on Tuesday, the last day it was possible to do so for next season. While the two sides still have until July 15 to agree on a long-term contract, the Steelers don’t seem worried about his January threat.
Elite David Njoku Jersey Bell also tweeted Monday night that he wants to play for the Steelers for the rest of his career.
Pittsburgh: Dion Lewis Authentic Jersey 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, he tweeted. I love everything about being a Pittsburgh Steeler, and I want nothing more than to finish the rest of my career in Pitt! #26Forever
Whether or not that actually happens could depend on contract negotiations in the coming months, or if Bell is really willing to walk away while at the peak of his career.
Britt signed a richer contract with the Browns last year, but quickly fell out of favor in the first year of a four-year pact. He was released after catching 18 passes in nine games and caught on with the Patriots. He played three games and caught two passes in New England before taking a seat for the entire postseason.
Danny Amendola is a free agent for the Patriots, who hope to have Julian Edelman and Malcolm Mitchell back in action after they missed all of last season with knee injuries. Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett round out the receiving group in New England.
