Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley support massive salary for Le'Veon Bell

Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley support massive salary for Le'Veon Bell

The 25-year-old has two Pro Bowls on his resume, including last season when he played in just 12 games, and will be eligible to play in Week 1 for the first time since his rookie season.

Le'Veon Bell's reply to a Twitter user who asked him a fantasy-geared question about his return to the Pittsburgh Steelers turned out to be a serious response.

However, Bell ultimately made a decision to table discussions because he was seeking a deal that could help reset the running back market.

Bell skipped training camp and all four preseason games in a contract dispute sparked when the two sides failed on an 11th-hour attempt for a long-term contract agreement July 15.

The NFL granted the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver permission to participate in regular season games today, almost 18 months after Bryant was suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy. There's been plenty of drama over the summer with Bell's holdout culminating with a rap battle on social media between him and linebacker Bud Dupree. The franchise tag still leaves Bell as the league's highest-paid tailback in 2017.

The Steelers will be ready for Bell's return.

In 2016, Bell has scored 1268 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.
