Bell is in the final year of his rookie contract, which he’s scheduled to make only ~$1,311,100 which is 45th most-lucrative salary among current NFL running backs. Well, Bell is envisioning a new contract where he is paid accordingly, according to his self-valuation.
In a rap song called ‘Focus’ , Bell voiced some of his opinion regarding his pay. One line that stand out is: “I’m at the top and if not I’m the closest, I’ma need 15 a year and they know this.”
Whether or not the Steelers, or any other team, would be willing to pay Bell $15 million a year remains to be seen, but at least Bell has a value in his head to bring to the negotiating table during contract talks.
