I'm not interested in acquiring Bell, but this story just got interesting. Bell sat out all of last year in his prime. What's he going to do now that he gets tagged?

Yikes. The first day the Steelers can apply the tag is next Tuesday. It is an almost stunning level of pettiness, but within the Steelers' rights via the collective bargaining agreement. Per reporter Gerry Dulac, under no circumstance would the Steelers consider actually keeping Bell. The scheme would also require Bell signing the tag. The Steelers' endgame would be: Getting Bell to sign the tag, matching an offer sheet from another team, and then trading Bell for compensation. It promises to be an acrimonious end to an exceedingly bitter feud.

If he signs the tag, watch the "poison pill" offers from the 49ers and Jets roll in that the Steelers can't match and they get nothing for him anyway.
