Le’Veon Bell Michigan State NCAA College Jersey

Former Michigan State RB Le’Veon Bell set to finally make more than $1 million per year

With the NFL’s franchise-tag deadline set for Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to let their star tailback cash in a bit early. On Monday, the team placed its franchise tagged on Le’Veon Bell, and it’s worth around $12.2 million.

Before the Steelers chose to stop the Columbus, Ohio native from heading into free agency, Bell was still receiving checks via his rookie contract, which handed him just $1.19 million last season. Nevertheless, he earned himself a much larger payday with a massive 2016-17 campaign, collecting the fifth-most rushing yards in the league (1,268).

Moreover, the 6-foot-1, 225-pound running back posted 357 rushing yards during the NFL playoffs, good for the most among his peers. He’s also the first player at his position to be tagged since Matt Forte (Chicago Bears) and Ray Rice (Baltimore Ravens) were in 2012.

During his days in East Lansing, Mich., Bell was just as explosive, especially as a junior. That season, he posted 1,793 yards on the ground, along with 13 total touchdowns.

Before former NFL running back Ricky Williams made it into the league, he was a standout as a Texas Longhorn. During his Heisman Trophy run, Williams broke Tony Dorsett’s 22-year-old NCAA career rushing record and joined Earl Campbell to become the second Texas player to win the Heisman.

He also went through a bad break-up during that year and a smoke session with a friend changed his life forever.
