The Pittsburgh Steelers and running back LeVeon Bell failed to reach an agreement on a contract extension before Monday's 4 PM franchise tag deadline, and his agent says that means it is likely Bell's last season with the team.
"His intention was to retire as a Steeler," Adisa Bakari told ESPN's Adam Schefter. "But now that there's no deal, the practical reality is, this now likely will be Le'Veon's last season as a Steeler."
Bell will play on the franchise tag for the second consecutive year barring an unforeseen development. He tweeted after Monday's deadline passed that "2018 will be my best season to date."
