Le’Veon Bell Reveals on Twitter When He’ll Return to the Steelers (Tweet)
I don’t know what good a contract holdout is if you tell everyone when you’re going to return, but Le’Veon Bell apparently did just that when he tweeted out the date “9-1-17” to his followers yesterday.
He’s currently sitting in front of a franchise tag offer that would pay him $12.1 million, making him the highest-paid running back in the league.

What he’s going to do for the next two weeks is anyone’s guess. Travel the world? Play video games? Must be nice knowing you’ve got a crazy payday waiting for you upon your return.
Of course, there’s always the matter of that winking emoji. Is there more here than meets the eye? We’ll find out shortly, no doubt.
