The agent for Le'Veon Bell expressed concern with how the Pittsburgh Steelers plan to use him this season.
“I’m not going to discuss our plan publicly,” Bakari said, via Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “But if you’re Kevin Colbert and you’re Mike Tomlin, and you have a once-in-a-generation type of player for one more season, what would your plan be? . . .
“You can read in between those lines.”
Bell has averaged more than 300 touches per year in five seasons.
Bell hasn’t signed his $14.5 million franchise tender yet and he's widely expected to leave the Steelers next offseason.
“Le’Veon has every intention of making this season the best season of his career,” Bakari said. “That has not changed. That his intention — to make this the best statistical season of his career.”
