Bell's latest posts also followed a titillating Monday tweet in which he wrote, "Fairwell Miami" - leading to speculation Bell was headed to Pittsburgh to talk with the Steelers about ending his holdout.
If Bell doesn't report to the Steelers by that date, he won't be allowed to play at all this season. He has lost $855,529 for very week he's missed so far.
What that would mean is that in order to tag him next year as a franchise player, the Steelers would have to commit to paying Bell $25 million in guaranteed money.
Bell faces a deadline of November 13 to report in order to play at all this season.
It feels as though a change of scenery is what's best for Bell at this point, but an interested team clearly must be willing to open up its wallet pretty wide.
The Athletic reported a month ago that Bell would qualify as a third franchise tag even if he didn't show by the deadline. A major key difference between the transition tag and the non-exclusive tag though is if Pittsburgh decided not to match a deal after putting Bell on the transition tag it would not get back any sort of compensation.
Le'Veon Bell #26 of the Pittsburgh Steelers looks on against the Jacksonville Jaguars during the first half of the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Heinz Field on January 14, 2018 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The Steelers could use the transition tag on him, which would be worth less than the exclusive franchise tag they used this season. Without Bell, the Steelers have started their 2018 season 5-2-1 as replacement running back James Connor has racked up 706 rushing yards and nine touchdowns, which are both the second-highest totals in the league.
