Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell got stuck with the franchise tag heading into the 2017 season. Despite rushing for 1,268 yards over 12 games last season and being named to the Pro Bowl for the second time in his career, Bell did not get a long-term deal to remain with the franchise.

Bell remained one of the league’s premier dual threats both on the ground and catching the ball out of the backfield, but had his season stunted by a three-game suspension to open 2016 due to a missed drug test in the offseason.
