While Le’Veon Bell continues his holdout from the Steelers, the rest of the world speculates where he’ll play football in the future.
However, before the dynamic running back takes his talents elsewhere, he’ll eventually have to suit up this season for Pittsburgh. Although he already surrendered his game check for Week 1, Bell still has ample time to sign the franchise tag.
If he does hit the open market next season, several teams will look to get their hands on the All-Pro tailback.
Even though it’s early, the current odds for which team Bell will be on for Week 1 of the 2019 season were released.

As of right now, the Steelers are actually favored to retain Bell.
Teams like the 49ers and Colts can certainly use Bell’s production in their backfield. Yet, it’s somewhat shocking to see the Packers and Patriots mentioned so high on the list.
It’s certainly entertaining to imagine hypothetical scenarios for Bell, but he’ll need to return to the Steelers first if he wants any chance at breaking the bank in the offseason.
