Le’Veon Bell Bowling In South Florida Less Than 24 Hours From Contract Deadline

With Monday’s deadline to sign a new contract less than 24 hours away, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell apparently spent Sunday night over 1100 miles from the Steel City.

According to a video posted by him on his Snapchat Sunday night, Bell was busy having fun at Strike 10, which according to their website is an upscale bowling alley and hookah lounge in Hallandale, Florida.

So, what else is Bell doing in south Florida? That bowling alley is less than half an hour’s drive away from Bommarito Performance Systems, where Bell normally works out during the offseason. The running back had been training some in Los Angeles recently and ahead of his appearance on Celebrity Family Feud.

If Bell is to not play under the franchise tag in 2017, he’ll need to sign a new contract prior to 4 pm EST later today. The running back is scheduled to make $12.12 million in 2017 but has yet to sign his tender.

    Hmm! If he’s still in Florida, I think the writing is on the wall. No New Contract.

  • WilliamSekinger

    People are able to email, print, sign, scan, and email back documents all the time. Physical presence is no longer required in this day and age. However, I don’t think a contract gets done. He’ll play on the tag this year.

  • RickM

    That’s not surprising. The agent and Bell know what he wants and if I’m the agent I’d want Bell nowhere near the negotiations. If fact, showing disinterest would be even better to put pressure on the Steelers. His agent will get the team’s final offer today. Bell will be notified and he’ll either accept it or not. If it’s accepted they’ll do the fax signing if he hasn’t already flown to Pittsburgh this a.m. The only development that will mean anything is an announcement by the team that there is, or is not, a deal.

    Docusign is incredibly convenient

  • deuce_seven

    Good point. He’ll never find a stagecoach that will get him to Pittsburgh in time.

  • Jeff McNeill

    It’s only an hour and a half flight, plenty of time.

  • Jeff McNeill

    Amen brother.

  • Böröndi Krisztian

    He was seen in the facility 1-2weeks ago…I think he signed the paper that time. The question is only which paper. Tender or contract?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Bowling for Dollars

  • Dennis Nevinsky

    Maybe the hookahs are part of the deal.

  • Zarbor

    Been a Bell fan since Michigan State. I’ll be honest. I’m not so concerned if a deal gets done. Would it be nice? Depends…..Clearly we can’t break the cap for him. If he wants to be a Steeler for life he signs a long term cap friendly deal. If he doesn’t care about the cap or the team and wants to see his other options elsewhere then it a franchise deal for a year or two and then its “by felicia.”

    The Steelers history is pretty clear. Those who produce at a high level and want to be here, gets theirs. Those who are more concerned about getting theirs are no longer on the team. We’ll know more about LeVeon than we will about the Steelers since the Steelers pretty much do the same thing no matter the player.

    Upscale bowling alley? Now I’ve seen everything!

  • george

    He hasn’t signed either yet.

  • george

    I haven’t seen one video of him working out this off season (other than a pick up basketball gmae). That’s unsual since he usually posts several workout vids. Are there any out there?

  • Darth Blount 47

    What do you do for recreation?

    “Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback…”

  • Milliken Steeler

    Good point. I think there are a few more variables or concerns, but still spot on.

  • Alex Kozora

    That have been a ton, my friend.

  • Milliken Steeler

    Apparently Dummervil and company, couldn’t operate a fax machine. I believe that entire situ, was bs though. Elvis gamed the Broncos.

  • george

    Were they posted here on the Depot? Every search I do shows 2015 and 2016 workouts.

  • Jeff McNeill

    Follow his social media and you will see them.

  • Geoffrey Benedict

    They have their plan in place, no need to panic, get it done when it needs to be.

    The only issue we’ll have is if Bell is willing to sit out a year to get a different deal.

    One of the biggest problems with groin injuries is that they heal mostly, but take a long time to fully heal. Sitting out a year and working on it could actually improve his game going forward.

  • george

    Thanks. God I hate twitter.

  • Ray

    He puts a lot of stuff on his snapchat

  • tcirish53@gmail.com

    God I hate to even suggest it but to me he looks stoned in that pic!! 😬

  • ThatGuy

    he gains nothing by sitting.

  • ThatGuy

    Could be tired….lol

  • walter

    I live in Hallandale Florida. What would Bell want here? Surely there are better places to train.. This whole area has really gone downhill. Not too bad by the beach but crowded. SW Florida is much nicer and much safer

  • JohnnyFootball

    T minus 1 hour and counting.

  • NinjaMountie

    Wooo buddy, getting exciting. Less than an hour to go. I’m starting to feel like it’s going to get done and I feel like they’ll overpay…well, overpay in my opinion which doesn’t matter much, lol.

  • Rick M

    Too bad the Steelers can’t pay him in weed. He’d sign a lifetime contract then.

  • Rick M

    And that surprises you?? Duh.

  • NinjaMountie

    lol….sounds a bit bitter but still funny.

  • LucasY59

    “Bowling” = more important than a long term future with a team…sad

  • LucasY59

    he seems to always have a half high look to him, his eyes and smile look perma baked

  • Jones

    Soooo… No deal?! RIP Killer B’s 2019…

  • NinjaMountie

    They could still announce a deal was done.

  • NinjaMountie

    Adam Schefter says no deal.

  • tcirish53@gmail.com

    Let’s hope!

  • tcirish53@gmail.com

    Well, frankly yes. He is on double secret probation with his employer!!

  • Maureen A Gomes

    I used to live nearby in Cooper City. You’re so right. Overpopulated and rundown area. We moved away 11 years ago. However, LB has been consistently training at Bommarito since he was drafted.

  • walter

    Cooper City is not bad and Hallandale Beach not too bad but the entire city is over developed and headed in a downward trajectory. The arrow is pointing down. However Naples is still very nice in comparison.


    Let it go….
