or maybe Bell and his agent are showing the way for young players coming off there rookie deal to hold out for every dollar and not just take a home town discount while they are playing for bargin prices in year 3/4.

Mack could have got his deal done with the Raiders over the last 2 years and got paid better(elsewhere) and Donald waited out another year and got in on the even bigger contracts we saw this off-season.

also pointed out that once Bell turns up the Steelers have 2 weeks to activate him and think they don't have to pay him his full $850k during that time period if they chose to make a point according to the article.

again and i do feel that this point keeps getting lost at this moment he has no contract at all.



and calling it moaning is a tad silly, he wants to paid for the talent he is.

I used "moaning" having seen Earl Thomas gladly sign his extension then when in the last year he was due the $8.5m he agreed to and started to moan about it rather than just honour the contract he signed.we are quick to complain if teams try to strong arm players but if they expect a player to see out a contract somehow that can be unfair just because the market has moved on.

with Bell could see his 3rd year on salary's onwards which most of the time we as fans don't even look at as all we want to know is what is full guaranteed been unhappy if he agree's to say $10m a year and by then maybe Elliott/Gurley might have pushed the bar to say $13-14m.

At least Beckham realises Eli is garbage. I'll give him a little more credit now.

Thats such a "yes, but I cant actually come out and say it" response.

ah you fella into Lees trap where he picks out a tiny snippet to blow something up bigger than it is.


he followed it up by saying that Eli isnt mobile and we know that but that he can throw it but that we are playing too safe and we are.



he shouldnt of said it in public but these were home truths about his own team, he was giving real answers to questions and of course the media blow it up and attack him too.
