Steelers search new offers for Huge Ben, Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell enters a second straight offseason seeking a multiyear contract with the team. Art Rooney II said Pittsburgh wants to re-sign Bell for years at a time too though he did not commit to franchise tagging Bell

One of the lingers questions surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers concerns the long-term future of star running back Le'Veon Bell. "Art Rooney II and the Rooney family, Coach Mike Tomlin, Kevin Colbert, the coaching staffs I have worked with throughout my time in Pittsburgh, and the entire Steelers organization", Lake said in his statement.

Rooney went a step further, stating that Roethlisberger has expressed a desire to play beyond that contract. "That's good news to me, and certainly his play this year makes you feel like he does have a few years left".

Although his 2017-18 campaign lasted just 12 games as a result of the aforementioned setback, Shazier was still selected to this year's Pro Bowl, thanks to his 89 total tackles, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 10 pass defenses.

"We'll address that at the right time", Rooney said of Roethlisberger's contract. "I didn't get that letter yet", Rooney quipped Tuesday, per Bouchette.

The team's six Lombardi trophies are on display in the Rooney Library at the team's South Side headquarters. "We just need to focus on what we can do to get better, and I think we had the nucleus on a potentially championship team and we just got to get better". The bottom line is, can you come together and have a meeting of the minds? That's what we've got to work on.

Rooney said the Steelers have the "next several weeks" to reach a deal with Bell but stayed neutral on whether the team would apply the tag, which is worth around $14.5 million.

Bell also said last month that he believes both parties are closer to a contract than past year, when he skipped all of training camp and played the season on a $12.1 million franchise tag. "You never know what will happen in a negotiation". Finally, I would like to thank Steelers fans for their support and for being the best fans in the National Football League during both my time as a player and coach.

"When you're dealing with somebody at this stage of his career, I'm not sure we've ever dealt with a quarterback that we're extending at this age", Rooney added.
