Can you franchise a player for a third time? I thought twice was the limit
And it looks like Pittsburgh hasn't missed a beat on offense.... Yet you take away a rookie rb from the Pats and they score one offensive td in Buffalo....
You can franchise him a 3rd time, but then you have to pay him the QB franchise tag number, regardless of his position.
Any way you look at it, he passed up on the quick, guaranteed 14.5m in exchange for what will almost certainly be in the range of 35-45m guaranteed, only one year later. How he gets there is probably irrelevant in his mind. Trades, free agency, tag/no tag, whatever. All the dude has to do is exist on this earth until next spring and he made the right decision. I just think it’s that simple.
From my perspective, he just made the decision to make more money over being loyal to his teammates and fan base. You can also consider the possibility of him being a year fresher and potentially extending his career.
the steelers don't need any clarification, since the CBA is pretty clear in spelling out this situation:
here's section 2(b):
That’s going to be interesting to see how it turns out for him. Not playing is a bold strategy cotton.
No way Pittsburgh Franchises him. Unless they go the Dolphins route and break the rules by announcing to everyone that Jarvis Landry is available for trade to het higher compensation for him. Teams cannot use the Franchise Tag on players they don’t intend to keep. Surprised the NFL did nothing.
the patriots franchised matt cassell. i'm pretty sure they never intended to keep him.
That takes big cajones, and a lot of self confidence to sit out for the full year and walk away from that tag.
It also shows how delusional Bell is.
I knew someone was going to bring that up. The difference is that the Patriots did not announce that they were NOT keeping Cassell. Maybe the rules have changed since, but I was always under the impression that the franchise tag was intended to be used on players that teams wanted to sign to long-term extensions. I believe this is what Walter Jones also fought for as he was tired of getting franchise tagged by the Seahawks in the 90’s as they wouldn’t sign him to a long-term deal.
The Steelers are not being loyal to Bell.
He completed his rookie deal and now wants to get paid.Bell already played under the tag for a season. Pittsburgh wont give him what he wants and wont let him leave to seek his fortune. Trade him while he is tagged. Take what you can get and move on.
If Bell gets hurt and cannot play anymore, the Steelers would cut him in a NY minute and find somebody else. There is no loyalty in the NFL.
Yeah I think they get it back. Just saw a thread on their message board discussing how to utilize the ‘newly acquired cap space’. Damage seemingly done though as the money would have probably been more useful to them in march
That's a lot of money to leave on the table in hopes for a longer deal. I can't wrap my head around why wouldn't you take the 14.5 this year and then peace out Pittsburgh and play for the highest bidder next year?
Just when you thought you knew your Teammates what are they searching for memorabilias??
Stealers? Bell's locker raided by teammates
I really regret Bell is not going to be a Steeler anymore. His new contract would be fatal for that organisation.
multiple pairs for rare sneakers/cleats.
Real classy In-bread organization.
The big thing we need clarification on: "if a player is redesignated as a franchise player for teh league year following the league year in which he does not play, that player may be designated ONLY under section 2(a)(i) above, except that draft choice compensation of only one first round draft selection and one third round draft shall be made with respect to such a player in the event he signs with the new club."
If the steelers DO franchise him, the most they get back if another squad signs him is a 1 and a 3, instead of 2 ones.
I am wondering is that a definition of the winning culture.
Separate names with a comma.
