At this point, it's pretty evident that running back Le'Veon Bell is done with the Steelers and the Steelers are done with him.
After not showing up for training camp as well as the team's first three games, the Steelers have reportedly made it known that they will be listening to trade offers for Bell.
While obvious candidates like the New York Jets came up in trade rumors, there are some interesting sleeper teams in the mix as well, according to NFL insider Jason La Canfora.
NFL insider says the Eagles are a "sleeper team" to trade for Le’Veon Bell https://t.co/mimMKpyJbP— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) September 26, 2018
Ohhh boy. The defending Super Bowl champs, who seem to be loaded at every position, are one of the sleeper teams that could be in the Bell sweepstakes, La Confora says.
He said that because the Eagles could move Nick Foles to a team that needs a quarterback, they could free up the cap space to bring in Bell and sign him to a big deal, which works because Jay Ajayi's deal is up at the end of the year.
Imagine Jay Ajayi and Le'Veon Bell in the backfield together and THEN Bell signing a long-term deal with Philly. That's just not fair.

Other teams La Confora mentioned as sleepers were the Washington Redskins, Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins.
We know that Bell isn't going to be in a Steelers uniform much longer, but the sweepstakes for him are just getting started and boy are they exciting.
