PITTSBURGH – Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le'Veon Bell has until 4 p.m. on Tuesday to sign his franchise tag deal if he wants to play this year.

The star running back tweeted “Farewell Miami” last week, possibly indicating the end of his months-long standoff with the club. Bell hasn’t been inside the Pittsburgh locker room since last January, opting to stay away rather than sign his one-year franchise tender.

The two-time All-Pro has sacrificed half of the $14.4 million he’s due this season but needs to report by Nov. 13 to make sure he accrues enough service time to reach free agency in March.
