Le'Veon Bell Spotted Playing Basketball at Pittsburgh Gym

Le'Veon Bell Spotted Playing Basketball at Pittsburgh Gym

This whole saga of the Le'Veon Bell-Pittsburgh Steelers standoff has been unusual all along, but it's just getting weirder and more convoluted by the moment.

Pictures and videos circulated online late Tuesday of Bell in the club. Bell posted a tweet upside down - yes, upside down - to speak out on the situation.

It feels as though a change of scenery is what's best for Bell at this point, but an interested team clearly must be willing to open up its wallet pretty wide.

Bell, a member of L.A. Fitness who has spent past offseasons working out there, recently left Miami, where he has trained while away from the Steelers. Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, Bell must report to the Steelers by 4 p.m. ET next Tuesday or he will be ineligible for the remainder of the season, a source confirmed to ESPN. Teams can use the franchise tag on players up to three times, and it has been widely reported that this year will only count as one of those three if Bell reports and signs the tender. He would be eligible to become a free agent in 2019 if the Steelers do not place a franchise tag on him for the third time.

In the case of the Lion Air flight, the "black box" that was found - which is actually bright orange - contains instrument data. CNN said Indonesian officials are working with Boeing and safety experts to further investigate the airspeed indicator issue.

If he plays games this year, the Steelers could try to prove Bell's transition tag should be prorated.

The Steelers running back broke his silence Wednesday on Twitter, posting a pair of upside-down tweets as he aired his grievances amid his contract holdout.

"Just about everybody has an opinion on my life & anxious about what I'm doing", Bell wrote. I'm not going to apologize for what I believe is right for myself, family and the rest of my peers, period.
