The Steelers are once again dealing with holdout issues with their star running back Le'Veon Bell.

Reports are swirling that Bell will sit out half the season if he does not receive the lo deal he is chasing. This comes after similar reports were being leaked last off-season. Bell we be slotted to become a free agent on 2019 and would be coming of a season in which he limited his touches in order to stay healthy and fresh.

I think it's possible Le'Veon Bell sits out the first half of the year if he doesn't get a lo deal done

Bell has been one of the most productive backs in the league over the past several seasons. Last season, Bell racked up 1,946 yards from scrimmage to go along with 11 TD's. The Steelers have one of the most high-powered offenses in the NFL with Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown leading the way and the team is surely looking to keep their core intact.
