The news was made public Sunday morning, just hours after Bell sent out a questionable tweet saying that he just wants to be appreciated.

The running back, who hasn't been with the team at all this season, posted: "sometimes a simple ‘thank you’ can go a long way … I feel like too many ppl take me for granted.”

Bell has forfeited $853,000 each week he hasn't reported to the Steelers. If he reports next week and signs his franchise tender, he will be owed $11.9 million.

This news of the Steelers listening to trade offers is just the latest in the controversy surrounding the team.

James Conner has started at running back over the first two weeks.

The Steelers play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.
