While TV cameras set up outside the team's practice facility on Tuesday to catch Bell if he chose to show up for work for the first time in almost 10 months, the 26-year-old never pulled up to the gates, ending - for now - one of the more unusual labor standoffs between a team and a player in the era of free agency.
The only thing that can save the Steelers' season is a Super Bowl, and their chances at winning one would have been better with Bell.
But Bell, he's posting to Instagram. LaAdrian Waddle replaced him.
Le'Veon Bell #26 of the Pittsburgh Steelers avoids a tackle by C.J. Mosley #57 of the Baltimore Ravens as he runs into the end zone after a catch for a 20 yard touchdown reception in the first quarter during the game at Heinz Field on December 10, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He has rushed for 771 yards and 10 touchdowns, good for third-best in the National Football League in both categories.
The unusual decision to sit out won't prevent Bell from becoming a free agent next spring, when the three-time Pro Bowler hopes to cash in with a contract that would make him the highest-paid back in the NFL. If he doesn't indicate he'll sign by 4 p.m. ET, he'll be ineligible for the rest of the season.
In replacement of Lewis, New England looked to the draft and with their first-round pick added college star Sony Michel out of Georgia to pair with James White as the new-look running back attack in Foxboro. He hardly seemed bothered by the idea of Pittsburgh's quest for a postseason berth continuing without Bell.
Is Le'Veon Bell bound to become a member of either the New York Jets or the Oakland Raiders? Everyone is waiting to see if Bell will return to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday.
