Le'Veon Bell cleans house on his social media bios

If you want the latest on Le'Veon Bell, just jump on his Twitter page - and stand on your head.

The two-time All-Pro running back is in the middle of a contract dispute with the team.

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. Bell has sat out the first nine weeks of the regular season and has not signed his franchise tender for the season.

The Athletic reported a month ago that Bell would qualify as a third franchise tag even if he didn't show by the deadline. Bell posted a tweet upside down - yes, upside down - to speak out on the situation.

Reports from earlier in the season suggested Bell needed to sign with the team by November 13 if he wanted to retain his free agent eligibility following the season.

A third franchise tag would be worth more than $20 million, and though the Steelers are unlikely to utilize that tag, one option is the transition tag, which is worth 120 percent of his previous year's salary. That gives Bell the ability to negotiate with other teams and the Steelers the right to match, which would essentially be the same as him hitting the free agent market.

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.

Just about everybody has an opinion on my life & anxious about what I'm doing.

If that's the case, no talks appeared to take place Wednesday, with ESPN reporting, "There was no indication ... that Bell had visited the team's facility".
