Monday was anticlimatic as the franchise tag deadline came and went without a new deal.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, unsigned franchise player Le'Veon Bell may not report to Steelers camp until "mid-to-late August".

Bell, selected in the second round in 2013, has missed the team's off-season work recovering from groin surgery, and it's unclear if he'll show up at the start of training camp or wait to sign his franchise tag.

"Unfortunately, we were unable to agree to terms on a long-term contract with Le'Veon Bell prior to today's deadline", general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement. As a result, Bell will earn $12.1 million under the franchise tag in 2017 and become an unrestricted free agent next year.

Bell will play this season under a $12.1 million tag. Bell's 157 total yards per game last season ranks third all time for a running back.

Well, Bell is at the top of his profession and will make the most money of any National Football League running back in 2017. Bell returns to the lineup for the Steelers on Sunday against Kansas City. Bell wants to be compensated not just for running the ball, but also paid in line with his pass-catching ability.
