Of course he wants to finish the season with the Steelers. If he doesn't report by the 9th week, he doesn't get credit for a season's service and will be right back in the same position next year. No team is going to give Pittsburgh anything of worth in a trade that is better than the 3rd round compensatory pick they will get when they lose him in free agency, since he would only be a half season rental and require a lot of manipulation to fit into another team's salary cap. The time to trade Bell is in the offseason, when another team can negotiate a new contract before agreeing to the trade. That cannot happen right now -- Bell passed the deadline where he can sign an extension this season. I think Bell's in for a rude awaking in free agency. He turned down a contract with guaranteed money very similar to what Todd Gurley got from the Rams. I doubt he gets that kind of offer again -- Gurley is much younger, has never been suspended, and is not a pain in the ass to deal with. Also, htere's a huge risk that Bell will not perform nearly as well in another offensive system. Any eam that offers him Toddy Gurley money is insane.
