Analysis: Bell's holdout will last at least one more week and doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon. Those who picked up James Conner, who racked up 192 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns last Sunday against the Browns in a highly impressive first NFL start, should be feeling quite good right now.

Analysis: Bell, a three-time Pro Bowler, accounted for 1,946 total yards and 11 touchdowns for the AFC North champions in 2017. Both Bell and Steelers management said after the season they hoped to get a contract extension done quickly, but failed to do so by Tuesday's deadline for teams to use the franchise tag. Bell is scheduled to make $14.54 million in 2018 if he signs the franchise tender and the two sides are unable to reach an agreement on a new deal by the 2018 opener.
