Le’Veon Bell Opens Up About Contract Holdout With Bizarre Tweets

Because apparently that's what Le'Veon's camp reportedly did as they scanned the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, because now the superstar running back might get on a flight back to Miami because there's no point in him taking the field at all!

If you've been paying attention to the Le'Veon Bell situation, then you may have noticed that there seems to be at least one new twist every day. Bell has failed to sign his $14.5 million franchise tender while preserving his long-term health for a future lucrative contract.

Bell faces a deadline of November 13 to report in order to play at all this season.

With all of that in mind, the 26-year old Pro Bowler took to twitter last night with a pair of cryptic tweets - both of which were posted in an upside down font.

According to ESPN, despite the video, there is no indication Bell visited the Steelers' facility. The running back would be free to negotiate with National Football League teams, but the Steelers would have the right to match any offer. "There's now a real possibility that Bell won't report by the deadline".

Just about everybody has an opinion on my life & anxious about what I'm doing.

Bell said the Steelers told him they plan to place the transition tag on him this offseason, and a source confirmed to ESPN that the tag would be worth approximately $9 million to $10 million. "But most people don't take the time to just simply read between the lines. and that's clearly on them".

If he plays games this year, the Steelers could try to prove Bell's transition tag should be prorated. I'm not going to apologize for what I believe is right for myself, family and the rest of my peers, period.
