    I don't think even 2-3 players will replace his production. They will take his carries and targets... but they will be nowhere near as efficient.

    How can they pay a unproven quarterback like Garoppolo $137,500,000 in San Fran... but Pitsburgh cannot afford to pay Bell a decent amount...

    I think the perspective is a bit of a joke. Bell is proven... Garoppolo is not... Osweiler was not and he got paid more to walk away from a team then Bell is going to get playing as the best RB in the game.

    I can't agree more here.. Great point on the unproven QB's.. I understand QB's are the most important player on the football field as far as the offense goes, but L.Bell is a game changer and has been for the Steelers..

    L.Bell has recently said he will not hold out no matter what his contract situation is this year.. Which is great news.. But something tells me that he isn't going to go all out for this team!!
