The drama between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Le'veon Bell continues.

But even though Bell is in the Steel City, that doesn't mean he'll return to 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. Bell posted a tweet upside down - yes, upside down - to speak out on the situation.

Driver was huffing before Wis. crash that killed 4
CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. ( WEAU ) - The Lake Hallie Police Department is investigating a fatal hit-and-run involving five people. A fourth girl who was struck by the pickup remained hospitalized in critical condition as of Saturday evening.

He played under a franchise tag in 2017, earning $12.12 million after turning down a five-year, $13.3-million-per offer. That gives Bell the ability to negotiate with other teams and the Steelers the right to match, which would essentially be the same as him hitting the free agent market.

Pro Football Talk has been reporting that the Steelers could franchise tag Bell again this offseason for the second time if he doesn't report by November 13 at the same salary number of around $14.5 million, as the 2018 franchise tag would not count as one of the three the team can use on Bell.

Don't judge me off my decisions because maybe this isn't what you'd do but most people don't take the time to just simply read between the lines & that's clearly on them.
