Earl Thomas and Le'Veon Bell are just two NFL stars who have struggled to sign long-term deals with their respective teams. Is this a bad sign for the future?

Mandatory Credit: Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers and running back Le’Veon Bell were unable to reach an agreement on a new contract the deadline this offseason. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Bell will once again play his season on the franchise tag, this time paying his $14.5 million. But what happens at the end of the season?

So we are going to assume that Bell signs a longterm contract in the next offseason.
