Le'Veon Bell could be pursued by one of Pittsburgh's old rivals if he enters the open market on March 14.

On Monday night, SI.com's Peter King tweeted that Bell could be pursued by the Raiders if the Steelers do not offer him a franchise tag by the March 6 deadline. Bell did reportedly tell ESPN earlier this month that he does not want to play the 2018 season under the franchise tag. It has been reported by multiple sources that the Steelers will franchise Bell in order to have more time to work with on a long term contact.

Oakland finished 25th in rushing this year. Marshawn Lynch led the Raiders with 207 carries for 891 yards and seven touchdowns, while Jalen Richard was second on the team with 275 yards on 56 carries.
