I believe it can be as good as most other camps simply because of the quality of support that I have,” said Stuvaints.TEAM CONCEPT—Former Steelers defensive back Russell Stuvaints encouraging players to do their bestIn attendance were former Bengals fullback and Woodland Hills grad Chris Edmunds; former Ravens linebacker Tim Johnson, who once was a teammate of Stuvaints’ at Youngstown State, and undrafted cornerback Kevin Johnson, another McKeesport product who attended Eastern Michigan and trained with the Steelers minicamp in May.
LE’VEON BELLPITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers and star running back Le’Veon Bell failed to reach an agreement on a long-term contract, meaning Bell will play on a one-year tender this season.Pittsburgh placed the franchise tag on Bell in March and had until Monday afternoon to work out a new deal. Bell instead will make $12.1 million this season, the average of the five highest-paid running backs in the league.Bell could become an unrestricted free agent next spring or the Steelers could place the franchise tag on him a second time. General manager Kevin Colbert says the team will “resume its efforts” to re-sign Bell next offseason.The 25-year-old Bell ran for 1,268 yards and seven touchdowns and caught another 75 passes in 12 games for Pittsburgh in 2016.___For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL
