Steelers tag RB Bell

Steelers tag RB Bell

He finished the year second in the National Football League in receptions (106), tied for second in touchdown catches (12) and fifth in receiving yards (1,284). He has recorded five 1,000-receiving yard campaigns (2011 and '13-16) and four consecutive 100-reception seasons (2013-16) - joining Marvin Harrison (1999-2002) as the only players in National Football League history with four straight 100-catch seasons.

Bell was given the exclusive franchise tag, which will guarantee a salary of $12.2 million in 2017 unless the two sides agree to a long-term deal.

The dual-threat back (he also had 616 receiving yards and two touchdowns) was a legitimate MVP candidate last season. With Adrian Peterson likely to be released from the Vikings in the near future, the franchise tag number for running backs could decrease from the $12 million it was a year ago.

And while he complained publicly, his White House spokesman took up the same arguments with members of the news media. If they wouldn't publicly refute the story , he wanted them to dismiss it in talks with reporters on background.

Colbert said that if the team were to franchise tag Bell, it would do so in this way. Tampa Bay's Doug Martin and Kansas City's Jamal Charles are scheduled to earn $7 million in 2017, while Buffalo's LeSean McCoy, Carolina's Jonathan Stewart and Tennessee's DeMarco Murray all come in at $6.25 million. Last offseason, the two-time Pro Bowler released a rap song in which he said he wants to make $15 million a year. Right now, Peterson is scheduled to count $18 million against the cap, and that's simply something no team is willing to pay for a running back, especially when the next highest paid back is making under half that much (LeSean McCoy).

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has reportedly agreed to a rather impressive deal. He'll surpass A.J. Green into that top spot.
