This is probably the weirdest development we've heard in the Le'Veon Bell holdout saga yet, and that's really saying something. 


Former Pittsburgh Steelers great James Harrison has a bold strategy for how to solve Le'Veon Bell's holdout situation. What is it, you ask? Sign the franchise tag before Week 10, go to practice, and then fake an injury before his first game to avoid both being franchise tagged next year and actually playing for the Steelers. 

Hard to argue with Mr. Dunlap on that one. But if you thought Bell's teammates like offensive linemen Ramon Foster and Maurkice Pouncy were already peeved by his holdout before, just imagine if he came back to the team just to fake an injury. 


If you're thinking about it from Bell's perspective, it makes sense financially for his future to avoid being tagged and remain healthy for a future team and contract with other teams interested in him elsewhere. Because one thing is all but certain: he's not going to playing for the Steelers come 2019.
