Le'Veon Bell will consider sitting out or retiring if the Pittsburgh Steelers use the franchise tag on him for the second consecutive season.
Bell played on a $12.1 million franchise tag in 2017, and that number is projected to increase to around $14.5 million for next season.
"I hope it doesn't come to that, but I would definitely consider it," Bell said before Thursday's practice.
Last July, Bell turned down a long-term contract that reports said was worth up to $30 million in the first two years because he felt the team didn't value his full skill set.
Asked what the Steelers should do this offseason, Bell said simply: "Value me."
"Just get the numbers straight, exactly where we want them. I'm not going to settle for anything," Bell said. "I know what I do and what I bring to the table. I'm not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I'm not getting what I feel I'm valued at."
