The Steelers and running back Le’Veon Bell have 12 days left in their second annual effort to work out a long-term deal that replaces the franchise tag. Former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis thinks they should.
Absent a long-term deal by 4:00 p.m. ET on July 16, Bell could hit the open market in March 2019. By rule, the Ben Roethlisberger Authentic Jersey Steelers would have to apply the quarterback franchise tender in order to keep him from becoming an unrestricted free agent a third time, bumping his one-year pay from $14.5 million to roughly $25 million.
Before that happens, the Steelers would have an exclusive window from the end of the 2018 regular season into late February to try one final time to get Bell signed. At that point, however, Bell will hold all the cards, since he’ll just be weeks away from getting a chance to consider whether another team has the offensive line, quarterback, and receivers to allow him to be as great as he wants to be.
In the case of Colin Kaepernick’s collusion grievance against the NFL, there’s no jury to avoid. Arbitrator Stephen Burbank, who will decide the summary http://www.penguinsofficialhockey.com/adidas-riley-sheahan-jersey judgment effort, also will render the verdict, if there’s a full-blown hearing. So the NFL’s obvious goal in seeking summary judgment will be to force Kaepernick and his lawyer, Mark Geragos, to provide a preview of their trial plans by showing how the alleged evidence of collusion meshes with the applicable law to prove that a violation occurred.
Thus, if someone is going to dime out the NFL, this would be a good time for it to happen. Likewise, any other smoking gun that Kaepernick and Geragos have tucked into a holster will need to emerge now, if they hope to ensure that http://www.officialsteelerslockerroom.com/elite-ben-roethlisberger-jersey the case Riley Sheahan Jersey will go to trial.
Ultimately, it won’t take much to beat the NFL’s motion. The law requires the facts and all reasonable factual inferences to be viewed in the light most favorable to Kaepernick.
