Steelers trying to trade Bell; would 49ers look?

The Steelers are reportedly seeking a second-round pick and a good veteran player. If Bell joined the team, it would cost the Steelers $11.3 million if they chose to use their transition tag, which is less that the franchise tag they used this year.

Not only did the ESPN post include the quote from Wagner supporting Thomas' feelings about his injury and relationship with the Seahawks, Pittsburgh Steelers running back and fellow holdout Le'Veon Bell also offered his support on Instagram as well.

"If he doesn't come, then he's not a team player", Wagner told reporters after the game Sunday, via The Olympian. Any team trading for the running back would need him first to sign the tender (Bell is not now under contract; no team can trade a player not under contract). He is still hoping to land a long-term deal with the Steelers, according to the report.

Bell turned down a $70-million offer from Pittsburgh over the summer because it only contained $17 million in guarantees.

Boats are surrounding the partly submerged plane to rescue passengers and crew but other details are not yet available. The cause of the incident is not yet known but media reports said it had overshot the runway while attempting to land.

The Pittsburgh Steelers running back reacted to broken leg the Seattle Seahawks safety suffered Sunday with a promise to "be the bad guy" on behalf of his fellow National Football League players.

Meanwhile, second-year rusher James Conner has thrived in Bell's absence, rushing for 213 yards and three touchdowns while catching 15 passes for 139 yards. However, the two teams are not believed to have been in contact with one another to this point.

A Bell-Thomas swap is surely off the table now, though.

"Earl Thomas suffered a clean, lower leg break but no ligament damage and no displacement, source said. He should be 100% by the Super Bowl... and free agency", Ian Rapoport tweeted.
