Le'Veon Bell's master plan is in full motion and isn't going away

PITTSBURGH -- Bell crazy.

That was the response from Steelers backup running back Stevan Ridley when Le'Veon Bell recounted his summer, when he turned down a mega-deal from the Steelers to play on the franchise tag. Bell explained that his plan was in full motion.

"With what I can bring to the table and what I look forward to, I wasn’t going to settle for anything less than what I think I’m worth," Bell told ESPN as part of an interview that revealed he's considering sitting out 2018 or retiring if franchise tagged for the second consecutive year.
