The Pittsburgh Steelers and running back Le’Veon Bell have until 4 p.m. ET to reach a long-term contract, and reports are stating there isn’t a deal close, or imminent, between the two parties.

This from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:

Negotiations are ongoing, but no deal is close or imminent for #Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell. This one may go down to the wire. u23f3

While most reports, like this one, are leaving the door open for a potential deal to get done, it doesn’t seem like the two parties will be able to come to terms on a new contract.
