"We can't afford to use any other type of tags", Colbert said Wednesday, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Mitchell, who is set to be a free agent in March, played with Brown from 2014-17 during their time with the Steelers.

Le'Veon Bell #26 of the Pittsburgh Steelers reacts prior to the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on January 22, 2017 in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Colbert was also very clear the Steelers are not going to offer any discounts just to give Brown the trade he wants. The three-time Pro Bowl selection soon will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent, and it sounds like he won't have a shortage of suitors.

According to a report from the New York Daily News, Bell packed on a few extra pounds while he sat out the 2018 season and "there are reservations inside the (Jets') building about his motivation after he lands a big pay day".

In five seasons with the Steelers, Bell has rushed for 5,336 yards on 1,229 carries and 35 touchdowns.

Bell will be the hottest name this spring.

Rumors have been swirling for months surrounding disgruntled Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown. "How things transpired, we're all disappointed", Colbert said.

"Ben Roethlisberger is unquestionably the leader of this team", Colbert said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. That won't happen. If any move is made, the Steelers intend to trade him, and they intend to get as much in return as possible.
