That deal would have worked out to $15.66 million per year -- higher than the franchise tag number of $14.54 million per year.

As we know, Bell turned down the team's contract offer and was given the franchise tag, though he has yet to sign the tag or play a snap of football this season.

According to the report, it's unclear what salary the Steelers were offering in years four and five of the deal or exactly how much of that $47 million was guaranteed.

We do know Bell has just a few weeks left to return to the Steelers in order for the season to count toward the number needed before hitting free agency.
