Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell still hasn't signed a long-term contract Donte Jackson Panthers Jersey , and he seems to be willing to go great lengths if the front office doesn't step up with an offer that pleases the three-time Pro Bowler.Appearing on SiriusXM Radio, ESPN's Adam Schefter (h/t Ross Tucker), reported that Bell could be willing to sit out the first half of 2018 " if he doesn't get a long term deal done," because "the goal at that point would be to hit 2019 free agency healthy, not rack up another 400 touches."Bell is by far the most dominant and complete running back in the NFL Cheap Roquan Smith Jersey , as he, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and star wide receiver Antonio Brown have formed the best offensive trio in the league. But Bell and the Steelers front office have often butted heads, as they continue to struggle in finding middle ground on a long-term contract.Bell would either play 2018 under the $14.5 million franchise tag, or else he could decide to hold out. The Steelers offense doesn't run the same engine without Bell, so he holds the leverage here as the front office tries to work on a deal that will entice him enough. The 26-year-old rushed for over 1 Connor Williams Color Rush Jersey ,000 yards in 2014, 2016 and 2017, (he was limited to six games in 2015) and even racked up over 600 receiving yards in those seasons as well. No running back in the NFL can change a game as quickly as Bell, so it's easy to understand why he's willing to hold out until he gets paid top dollar.Pittsburgh's championship window is only open for so many more years, as Roethlisberger (now 36) and Brown (30) Byron Jones Cowboys Jersey , have just a handful of prime years left. With the AFC having more parity in 2018 and beyond, the Steelers have to try and keep the core together. As such, signing Bell long-term may be their only option. The Seattle Seahawks are turning to a former first-round pick to help fill one of the gaps on its revamped defense.

The Seahawks and free agent outside linebacker/defensive end Barkevious Mingo reached agreement on a two-year deal on Wednesday at the start of the new NFL league year. According to a person with knowledge of the deal, Mingo's deal is worth up to $10.1 million and includes $3.2 million in guaranteed money.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced by the team.

It was a rare addition for Seattle on the first day of free agency. The Seahawks have typically waited for the first rush of signings to subside before jumping into the free agent pool. But the addition of Mingo also stopped a wave of departures from the Seahawks on the defensive side, highlighted by the subtractions of cornerback Richard Sherman and defensive end Michael Bennett in the past week.

Mingo Kendall Wright Color Rush Jersey , 27, was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2013 draft by Cleveland, but after three underwhelming seasons with the Browns has bounced to New England and Indianapolis the past two seasons.

Mingo started six games last season for the Colts and finished with a career-high 32 tackles. He'll likely be in the competition for the strongside linebacker spot in Seattle's defense playing near the line of scrimmage. Seattle has struggled to find a consistent option for that position since losing Bruce Irvin in free agency after the 2015 season. Seattle used Michael Wilhoite and Terence Garvin as the primary starters at the position last season.
