Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell killed a five-year, $60 million deal his agent agreed to with the team at the July 17 NFL deadline for players to sign long-term contracts, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Friday.
The Steelers wrapped up their training camp in Latrobe, Pa., on Friday with Bell still holding out.
“I think the coaches are allowing me to rest it and allow it to heal. I don’t think it will be a problem during the season because it’s starting to heal up really good right now.”
The Redskins had placed Reed on the PUP list the day before training camp started as he battled a sprained big toe and ankle.
Reed’s return is good news for Kirk Cousins and Washington’s offense. Reed has 153 catches, 1,638 yards and 17 touchdowns the past two seasons despite missing six games.
Peterman entered Saturday’s preseason matchup against the Ravens after Taylor exited the game in the first quarter with a head injury. While the Bills have seemingly made Taylor the team’s starter for the regular season opener Sept. 10 against the Jets, his return could be delayed. In the meantime, the team wants Peterman to get comfortable and work on making improvements should he be needed.
“I got all of the reps (Sunday), so that’s helpful for me,” Peterman said. “The more reps I can get, the more ways I can see a live defense against our plays, and how they react, especially against a one-defense, where they react pretty fast. I think it was helpful for me.”
“That’s obviously why I’m here. It’s my job to be ready,” Peterman said. “I’m going to help the team as much as I can to be ready.”
Peterman, 23, was a fifth-round pick out of Pittsburgh in this year’s draft.
