Those are the facts.

Deal was totaled at $70M, but it only had $10M in guaranteed money and the rest was rolling guarantees with ways the Steelers could get out at every point. It was a god awful deal for Bell.

Terrible. I would have offered him the same in Oakland. At this price, why not?

We better make up for this by signing someone else. I'm pretty bummed about this.

Yep...and paid him $45 in his first two years.

Dude aint that bright.

For as incompetent as our FO has been over the last year, they made a more than fair offer to Lev, and it likely wouldve been more if they COMPLETELY trusted him.

In reality, Bell did us a favor.

$35M guaranteed > $10M guaranteed, for those wanting to compare the contracts.

So he signed for $9M less in total money BUT got $25M more in guaranteed money. Tell me again how this was the wrong decision for him.

According to NFL.com, the Steelers made one final offer to Bell on Monday, just hours before the NFL's 4 p.m. ET deadline for teams to negotiate a new contract with their franchise player. The offer from the Steelers was worth a total of $70 million over five years (or $14 million per season). Although the offer would have given Bell the largest multi-year contract of any running back in the NFL, he turned it down, and one reason he likely did that, is because it was nowhere near his asking price, which was reportedly in the neighborhood of $17 million per season.

RB's are a lot easier to find than pass-rushers imo. I rather Justin Houston.

I agree, but it's no guarantee we sign the right one for the right price... Unless that's in the process of happening rn.

Still more than the Steelers contract in guarantees and the tag combined in guarantees so...

$14.5M, so that's still $11.5M more than he would've made if I'm doing this right.
