That is the number of games the Pittsburgh Steelers offense has had Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant all on the field together. And after Bell signed his franchise tag tender Monday, worth $12.1 million dollars guaranteed money, the gang is back together again.
#Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has officially signed his $12.1M franchise tag. Team gets a roster exemption for up to 2 weeks. So they have 54.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 4, 2017
For those wondering about the team’s 53-man roster, the team was given a roster exemption for up to two weeks until he is activated for a game, which will likely be this Sunday when the team opens their regular season in Cleveland against the Browns.
The Steelers, with Bell’s holdout behind them, can now focus one football, and more importantly, winning.
The offseason and preseason are in the rear view mirror, and the Steelers offense is chalk full of All-Pro talent prepared to show the NFL just how lethal this unit can be.
