During the offseason, one of the major potential targets for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when it came to possible acquisitions outside of their build was Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl running back Le’Veon Bell. It wasn’t likely, however, before the team drafted running back Ronald Jones, the thought process did line up in terms of need. But, after the Steelers gave Bell their franchise tag for the second year in a row, the chances of Bell being a Buccaneers seemed all but dashed.
However, when the season began, Bell did not report to the Steelers, after sitting out for the entire preseason, and to this day has yet to report and sign his tag.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, that has left the Steelers open to possibly trading Bell.
