Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger hopes Le’Veon Bell reports on Wednesday

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger hopes Le’Veon Bell reports on Wednesday

"We are disappointed Le'Veon Bell has not signed his franchise tender and rejoined his teammates", GM Kevin Colbert said in a statement Monday.

Or maybe Bell will wait until early November to sign his one-year franchise tender, a move that would cost him millions in lost salary up front, a windfall Bell hopes to recoup when he hits free agency next spring.

"I told him, 'You need to prove to everybody that you deserve to be here, '" Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Now, we're just singularly focused on the guys that are here working and have been here working and kind of building a plan around variables that we know.

"It's fine", center Maurkice Pouncey said. "We will weigh all of those things at the appropriate time". While he would be forfeiting game checks if he misses regular season contests, he could ultimately be trying to save his long-term future in this league and his next contract.

Conner tweaked his hamstring on the first day of rookie minicamp shortly after being selected and only showed flashes of the player who ran for 3,733 yards and found the end zone 56 times for the Panthers.

"Do you feel more comfortable with what you have behind Le'Veon going into Cleveland than you did a year ago?"

"The status and condition and the approach of James", Tomlin said. Veteran Stevan Ridley and rookie Jaylen Samuels also are available for action at tailback. But, the closer Sunday becomes without any answers from Bell or the Steelers, the more questions arise surrounding the 26-year-old's future.

Jones had spent the past five seasons on the roster, including three as Ben Roethlisberger's backup, before being let go Saturday.

Dobbs entered the preseason fighting for the third spot at quarterback and sealed his job with a strong performance in the preseason finale against Carolina. "Josh was presented with very tangible challenges. He provided good and consistent play for us".

"We expect a lot from second-year players in terms of growth and development", said Tomlin. All four players participated in practice Monday.
