Le’Veon Bell’s days with the Pittsburgh Steelers could be numbered.
The Steelers are “actively shopping” the All-Pro running back on the trade market, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported Sunday, citing sources. Rumors of a possible Bell trade have been circulating ever since he began his holdout ahead of Week 1.
Moving Bell certainly wouldn’t be easy for the Steelers, as the 26-year-old has been one of the best running backs in the league during his career. Yet the emergence of James Connor — and Bell’s continued absence from the team — likely has warmed Pittsburgh to the idea of dealing one of its franchise players.
