Le'Veon Bell did a sit down with Sports Illustrated to discuss his last year. He said that he was originally planning on sitting out the first week of the season and then he planned to report to the team.
He also said he planned to show up after week 7 in order to not get slapped with the franchise tag again. It doesn't sound like Bell ever really had a plan. That's on him. That's also on his agent, Adisa Bakari.
At any rate, the Bell and Brown sagas should be coming to an end, right?! PLEASE! I'm tired of trying to get into the minds of those two. It's not an easy task.
