The Pittsburgh Steelers are clearly sick and tired of answering questions about Le’Veon Bell and his holdout and no one shows that more than head coach Mike Tomlin.
Despite the three-time Pro Bowler’s absence from the team, the Steelers are preforming very well and sit atop the AFC North at 4-2-1 thanks to the running of James Connor, who has come on and really established a name for himself.
But despite Connor’s emergence, Bell’s drama continues to cloud over the Steelers, who have Super Bowl aspirations in 2018 and the latest jab from Tomlin shows that:
Steelers’ HC Mike Tomlin to @diannaESPN on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown regarding the Le’Veon Bell situation: “We need volunteers, not hostages.”

Le’Veon Bell has until Nov. 13th to show up to the Steelers if he wants to play football in 2018:
By not showing up to the Steelers by today at 4 p.m., Le’Veon Bell passes on $7.7 million of salary on the franchise tag. He can still earn $6.8 million if he reports next week, $5.9 million if he reports Week 11, which is the deadline to play at all this season.
