    More likely he can't wait because 9-9-18 is the date of the first game he gets paid for

    Cannot imagine Bell is going to miss less training camp than he did in 2017 unless he gets a new long term deal

    he will only get paid for the games AFTER he signs , and the ones missed via not signing ( if there is any) he will not get anything for .... paychecks are the incentive to sign

    camp is mandatory if under contract so there is that ... I assume he will cost himself some money and miss all of camp and maybe a couple preseason games to try and make some misguided point

    Will not cost him a dime if he signs the tag and reports after the last preseason game - this from last season's drama

    “Holdouts” typically become newsworthy when players start skipping training camp sessions or preseason games. This is mainly attributable to the fact that teams have free rein to fine players up to $30,000 per missed camp practice and up to 1/17 of their game check per missed preseason game, which is a crazy amount of money. In this sense, NFL teams essentially hold the trump card in holdout scenarios: if guys want paid, they have to show up eventually. ...

    Since Bell did not sign his tag, he is not under contract, which means he is not subject to the fines associated with skipping camp and preseason games

    Probably the day he plans on signing his contract. At 9:59 a.m. Eastern Time so he doesn't put in one minute more than he has to.

    More likely he just mistyped "3-14-19" or whatever the start date is for free agency next year.
    An empty victory is a victory nonetheless.

    I read that tweet to mean that we're not going to see him until 9-9, so be patient. I see nothing there about showing up to TC.

    If you already are under contract, you can get docked a game check for missing preseason games, and also get fined daily for missing training camp.

    Ooh, sneaky Bell, though, they can't fine him for not showing up because he didn't sign the contract yet! Kind of like how your kids will outsmart you by not brushing their teeth, then it turns out they're so smart they end up with cavities. His name isn't Bell-Einstein for nothing.

    That is how I read it. And he'll skip TC and preseason games again.

    He ain't gonna. I really hope Conner can make a good jump in his 2nd year, and we should also get a good look at Samuels. That guy's skillset looks like they're looking for another Bell-type player.

    If Samuels can catch on and show he can run between the tackles, he's got some crazy potential. He already has a diverse skill set, and he's faster than Bell. I would be also happy if Conner can improve his run blocking. I love the way this kid runs hard, but when he's in, the play call is too predictable that it's a run.

    I think 9-9-18 might be the title of his new rap song:

    9-9-18

    By Le'Veon Bell

    Yeah, yeah 9-9-18
    In preseason I ain't be seen
    But it's time to get paid
    There's money to be made

    The contract just didn't happen
    But this season the fans still gonna be clappin
    Beyond the walls of monies, life is defined.
    I only think of money when I'm in a Steelers state of mind.

    Pittsburgh didn't treat me right
    The front office couldn't see the light
    Suddenness, glide, fast, like a bunny
    My running style is as sweet as honey

    I can't take less than I'm worth
    I was destined for greatness since birth
    Thinking of money. Yinz, thinking of money (money).

    that's true, and you don't really need to know how to sing to rap.
