​We're really coming down to the wire with this one. 


With the deadline for contract extensions rapidly approaching as 4 p.m. grows nearer and nearer, we know just about everyone who is going to end up playing under the franchise tag this season. 


Everyone except Steelers superstar Le'Veon Bell. 


The team ​is still trying to work out a deal with Bell right before the clock strikes four. 

​​This is really cutting it close. 


We've already seen a number of players like Kirk Cousins accept the franchise tag rather than continuing to work on an extension, but the Steelers and Bell are still not willing to let that happen. 


Bell wants to be here long term, and Pittsburgh wants him to be buried in black and yellow. Why can't a deal get done?


The speedster is already the highest paid running back with the tag, but he'd definitely like to see that deal stretched out over a number of years, not just one. If he can put up the same gaudy numbers he did last year, Pittsburgh would be happy to have him. 


With only a few hours left, we'll see if these two sides can get a deal done.
