Of course, Bell himself has been in no hurry to report to the Steelers, and the possibility exists that he might skip the entire season rather than play under the franchise tag placed on him by the team this summer, after the two sides failed to agree on a long-term deal.
Either way, it doesn't look like Bell will become a member of the Eagles this season. However, there were previously reports from February that stated the Eagles inquired with the Bills in 2017 about trading for McCoy before landing on Ajayi in a trade with the Miami Dolphins.More news: Trump official sought Israeli help to disrupt rival campaigns
McCoy spent his first six seasons with the Eagles before he was traded by Chip Kelly. Those players include Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles and Josh Adams, all of whom have already seen playing time this season. Meanwhile, the Eagles' depth at running back had taken a hit with injuries to other ball-carriers.
While Bell is looking for a big money contract next offseason, and he claimed over the weekend he does not want to be traded ... if the Eagles want to get back to the Super Bowl, they'll need to amplify the running game.More news: Pixel Slate: first Images of Google’s new tablet leak
