<![CDATA[Steelers won't use tag on Le'Veon Bell]]>
Le'Veon Bell will be a free agent.The Pittsburgh Steelers will not place a franchise or transition tag on the All-Pro running back, general manager Kevin Colbert told local reporters on Wednesday."Le'Veon is still a great player," Colbert said. "We can't afford to use any other type of tags. Le'Veon will be an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year." (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: There were some rumblings earlier in the off-season that the Steelers might use the transition tag on Bell but that was an unlikely scenario. The Steelers will receive a 2020 compensatory pick that could be worth as high as a third-round selection. For now, James Conner and Jaylen Samuels sit atop the Steelers running back depth chart.]]> 5434059 Wed, 20 Feb 2019 16:09:01 EDT
<![CDATA[2019 Steelers free agency: Should the Steelers re-sign Stevan Ridley?]]> James Conner. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ back made his first Pro Bowl and became the focus of the rushing attack. And when Conner was injured, the Steelers turned to then-rookie Jaylen Samuels to carry the load. But there was another running back on the roster, veteran Stevan Ridley with starting experience who was the odd man out. Now he faces free agency and could find himself on the outside looking in.

The case to keep him-Running backs with NFL starting experience aren’t easy to find. Ridley hasn’t had many opportunities with Pittsburgh but he’s proven he can handle a heavy workload in a pinch. He’s a power runner who has a role in any offense as a blunt instrument]]> 5431056 Fri, 15 Feb 2019 10:18:01 EDT Steelers Wire
