Who’s right: Le’Veon Bell or his teammates?

Le'Veon Bell might be sitting out Week 1 of NFL action to preserve his long-term value, and his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates are not happy. Reports are coming out that teammates believe Bell is being selfish. But with NFL players having a short span of time to get guaranteed money, Bell is making a legitimate business decision to get what he's earned. It's nothing personal. What do you think? 🏈

Who’s right: Le’Veon Bell or his teammates?

Bell made a business decision to hold out this off-season so he could get the money he deserves. But the season is here and now he has a contractual and moral obligation to play football. Not necessarily for himself, but for his teammates who depend on him to keep the offense moving and win games. 

Bell's selfishness is a burden and his teammates are right in calling him out.

Le'Veon Bell touched the ball 406 times in 2017—tops in the NFL. He's an important piece for the Steelers and he should be paid like it. $14 million is a lot of money for one year, but Bell earned a long-term payday with a lot of guaranteed money. So Bell is leveraging the only thing he can: himself. 

If the Steelers want his services, the front office will have to pay him fairly. He doesn't deserve to be dragged by the team, especially in a league where teams cut players on a whim. It's a business decision that Bell has to make for himself and his family. 

Bell is right and he needs to continue to fight the good fight.
