Is Le'Veon Bell being too greedy?

The Pittsburgh Steelers failed to complete a long-term deal with franchise-tagged running back Le'Veon Bell, all but signaling the end of this tenure with the team. The All-Pro back is set to make around $14.5 million with the tag. Some feel he is asking too much after turning down a huge contract that would've paid him $70 million over five years, with $33 million guaranteed. Still, Bell is just looking for long-term stability from a team that heavily leans on him. What do you think? 🏈

$14.5 million is objectively a lot of money, and that isn't enough for Le'Veon Bell? C'mon, man. How about a little loyalty to the team that stood by you when you broke your leg and when you got popped for marijuana possession and DUI?

If Bell wants a long-term deal, he should have accepted a monster five-year deal the Steelers offered him over the summer. Instead, he is crying about how he doesn't feel valued. He should shut up, play the game and stop being greedy.

People can't seem to sympathize with someone who is just trying to maximize his earning potential, even though that's exactly what everyone does on a daily basis. NFL fans know if they put in backbreaking work they would want to be rewarded for continuing to do it. Bell touched the ball over 400 times in 2017 and was the engine that drove a playoff-qualifying Steelers team.

Bell's dynamic skill set warrants respect and appreciation in the form of a fair long-term contract. He isn't being greedy. He just wants to be paid what he is worth.
