PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – It’s a move that everyone expected the Steelers to make, and the team has now made it official; they have franchised running back Le’Veon Bell.

Our Steelers Insider and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Steelers beat writer has the details on what this will cost the team.

This doesn’t appear to be the only step the Steelers are looking to take in securing Bell’s future as their lead back.

Bell is coming off a huge 2016 campaign in which he had 1,884 total yards from scrimmage while being named team MVP and making his second Pro Bowl despite missing the first three games of the season due to suspension.
