Le'Veon Bell's season is officially over

Conner, who is now in the concussion protocol, has 771 yards (4.7 average) and 10 scores on the ground this season, along with 39 catches for 387 yards and a score. According to Rapoport, Bell decided instead to wait until free agency before signing a new contract.

But Bell's commitment to carrying out his threat ultimately made it real, as he now has forfeited the entirety of that salary, along with some ancillary retirement benefits he would have collected from the league for playing this season.

The Steelers were optimistic Bell would rejoin the team after he left Miami last week and was spotted working out in Pittsburgh a few days later, though there reportedly were no discussions between the two sides.

Crucially, Jokanovic claimed that his players simply "are not showing enough effort or ambition and we must change this". This applies to me and my management of the team the most, by the way.

Head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters earlier on Tuesday that he had no expectation as to whether or not Bell would report.

With all that being said, we examine the five most likely landing spots should he find his way out of Pittsburgh in the 2019 NFL Season. In his absence, second-year running back James Conner has thrived, totaling 1,158 yards and 11 touchdowns from scrimmage in nine games as the Steelers have emerged as frontrunners in the AFC North. They could always transition tag him, but it still seems unlikely they'd match whatever offer Bells gets on the open market.

If the RB decides to stay home and skip getting paid anything for the 2018 season, then his legacy in the fantasy football world is cemented: He will absolutely, without a doubt, be the worst pick in the history of the game.

On the other hand, Ben Foakes had a flawless start to his Test career as the wicketkeeper-batsman scored a century on debut. We will work very hard now before that second Test match and hopefully back up a really good performance'.

So if you're stuck with Bell, the only solace you have if he doesn't sign by Tuesday afternoon is: You're part of history, and in the future, you'll probably stay far away from any player who's hinting at a holdout around draft time. Even when we don't understand it, we're sensitive to it.

And so, we appear to be at the end of Bell's career in Pittsburgh. He's scored just two touchdowns this year, both coming in Week 2, and has only recorded 23 receptions. But it won't be long until his free agency saga begins.
