Good logic, they wouldn't give him $15 million. Starting to remind me of Eric Greene.

I hear 'ya, Chuck... but Eric Greene was never even CLOSE to being as productive as Le'Veon Bell. I always viewed Greene as overrated and under-producing. Bell is NOT overrated... and he's widely viewed as the best at his position. 

That said, he'll end up like Greene on the ash heap of players who demanded way more than they were worth, went on to do nothing once they left, and ultimately ended up wishing they'd retired as Steelers.

They offered Eric Green the highest contract for a TE in NFL History.

He turned it down.

Bell needs the extra money, he's been busy spreading that seed all off season.

Wouldn't shock me if they are going to start shopping Bell.

They offered $30 million the first two years and he said no.

F him.

Run the wheels off of him the next 2 years and let him walk. Give him about 350 carries a year. By that time his best days will be behind him and if by then Ben is retired we are in full rebuild mode.

Running-back shelf life is very short and they go down hill fast.

I don't get the whole "run him to the point of exhaustion just so he's no good to anyone else" routine. How does an exhausted and thus injury-prone back help the Steelers win games, and more importantly, does anyone really think he'd be stupid enough to go along with it if he catches on? What's to stop him from simply putting two arms around the ball and going to the ground without being hit? They'd have to take him out to avoid losing, and thus his legs would be saved for the next team anyway.

Take care of him for the next two years, then shake his hand and wish him well when and if he decides to leave. If he goes to Baltimore or Cincinnati and tears us up for the rest of his career, so be it. It's our fault for not tackling well enough anyway.

Too funny! Smile Like I said before... > Trade him to the Rams for Aaron Donald. One things for sure > After this year they will trade him for sure.
