It is July, which means football is right around the corner. July 27th the Pittsburgh Steelers report to Latrobe, PA for another training camp. Although we still have a few weeks of the “dog days” of the NFL offseason, it doesn’t mean there isn’t news to still be discussed.

We take you around the world wide web to give you your daily dose of black and gold, along with making BTSC your one-stop-shop for all things Steelers.

Paul Zeise: The Steelers shouldn’t sign Le’Veon Bell to a long-term deal â?? Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers have until 4 p.m. Monday to get a long-term deal done with Le’Veon Bell. If that deadline passes, the franchise tag designation will stick, and Bell will make $12.12 million this season.

The Post-Gazette’s Ray Fittipaldo wrote about the intricacies of the situation earlier this week. Bell’s situation isn’t unique as teams designate players with the franchise tag to try and buy more time for negotiations every season.

That article points out that, for the most part, players designated with the franchise tag work out long-term deals right at the deadline. That would suggest the suspense will mount all weekend and then right about 3:55 p.m. Monday, the Steelers will announce they have reached a long-term deal with Bell.

Let’s hope that is not the case.

The Steelers should not make Bell the highest paid running back in the league. They should not sign him to a long-term deal. They should not move an inch from their current position that he is on a one-year deal.
