Whats he gonna do, smoke weed over the summer?

This is nothing more than a negotiating ploy. Guy wants a longterm deal and mot a franchise tag. I would be surprised if he acts on it.

Everyone saw how rusty he was early in the season after sitting out training camp. I think his value to any team would decline after sitting out a whole season. But some team, like the Patriots, would take him.

I don't think the Pat's would take him. They don't really like big $ players. Plus they are pretty stacked with RB's.( Lewis, and Whitehead). I'm sure someone else would pay more for him.

the steelers have had so many distractions this year...how much can one or three more hurt...
I doubt the players are upset about this...or that it will be a distraction...

Good for him. He made 12.5 Million this year alone. I could also retire on that much money.

The guy is a real talent - but what an ego
I say Franchise his ass again - and he will get $14 million for next year.

He's pissed off and deserves his money but keep your thoughts to yourself until the Patriots eliminate the Steelers then let it all hang out. I know it's legal by the rules but I would be upset too if I was franchised in consecutive years but I believe if he is he'll make around $14 million next year so I can't really feel too bad for him, but his timing is awful.

I look for him to have a great game. He has to in order to back up his comments.

I hope he gets the ring, having great games to get there.

NFL running backs do not last too long. He has had several leg injuries, get the $$$$ while he can.

James Conner is waiting in the wings.

Go Steelers!

Very true

I remember when I was a little boy my mother telling me we couldn't spend a million dollars it would be very hard, but your right these guys spend so much money and blow right threw it. You always see stories about how guys lose it all. If you follow him on twitter he thinks he can rap and has CD's out and they all suck so you know he is sinking money into that BS

I don’t blame him for not wanting franchised but the timing and even saying it out loud is selfish. If I was GM I’d franchise him just for negotiating in the press.

I think I read some place the next highest paid rb makes like 8.5. If a good rb is available draft one, franchise him or let him walk.

They may be able to make him some kind of offer knowing he won't sign. If someone else signs him they would get a 1st or a 2nd round draft pick in compensation, do that?

He's another reason not to watch football.

The hometown team is beset with idiots, featuring the triple option of Brown, Bryant and Bell. The butthead B's. Let him sit out, then when he needs the cash, play with him so he suffers. Those guys piss away their money on cars, elaborate homes that they will have to sell when they are cut and, lovely topics like divorce, child support, etc. Of course, they are led into battle by a rapist quarterback. So nice, especially when the team owner is supposedly a devout Catholic. The irony makes me laugh out loud. Oh, and by the way, if you disagree with my assessment of your quarterback, please note that I have been a criminal defense attorney for about 44 years and have handled these types of cases. He paid his way out of the problem but it does not change what would have happened otherwise. I don't know how local women can find it in themselves to cheer his athletic achievements. Hopefully, he will be gone soon. Bell, too. The old Steeler way simply does not exist with these guys.

Hardtoget, I agree with you on the 3 B's, all are assholes. Ben is supposed to be some kind of jerk also.

Hardtoget, when did receiving a bj from a willing person become rape. One time when I was 18 I fucked 3 different girls from the same bar one night in my car, would that be considered rape.

Meanwhile, it was just announced that Ben is opening a new restaurant on the North Shore. It will be called North Shore Seven. To be open in time for the 2019 baseball season.

He also owns several others in the South.

The new one likely will be a busy place enjoyed by all.

Do you know what the policy will be on bj's in the restrooms, if there actually will be a formal policy.

I had a girl I was seeing give me a hand job more than once while standing at a bar, I had a long coat on, would that be frowned upon.

It's just posturing. Do you really think he won't play for 14 million?

They definitely should franchise him and when they do he'll skip the off season activities and show up for week 1 just like this season.

if they tag him and if he's smart...he'll be a model citizen next year...report on time..keep his mouth...and realize this is his contract/audition year...have another very good season...
and he'll get what he wants in free agency...
or...he can be an ass clown...and lower his value considerably...
