Le'Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers failed to reach a contract extension before the 2018 season. As a result, the Steelers hit Bell with the franchise tag for the second-consecutive year - paying Bell $14.5 million over the course of the campaign.

In order to keep himself healthy for free agency in 2019, Bell decided to sit out for the entire 2018 season. His decision to skip out on the season also meant he forfeited the chance to earn nearly $15 million.

Several teams have expressed their interest in signing Bell next season - the New York Jets appear to be the favorite.

However, Bell may have hinted at where he wants to play in 2019.

The star running back commented on a post on Instagram featuring Andrew Luck. The image showed Luck with his recent string of success: eight-straight games with at least three passing touchdowns.

Bell commented "just imagine" under the photo. Does Bell want to team up with Luck, or is he just messing with fans at this point?
