An NFL executive tells Jeremy Fowler that he believes Steelers franchise RB Le’Veon Bell could get close to the kind of money he’s seeking on the open market if he’s able to put together another impressive season.

“I think if he is productive, then maybe [he gets] around where he is making this year,” the exec said. “I think his year will really dictate what he gets. Think people won’t really focus on what he has done in the past but rather just this year.

However, not everyone is as optimistic about Bell’s odds of securing $16 million per year in a long-term deal.

“I think he does well … but if he’s really thinking about the $16 million number, that won’t be what people [in the league] are thinking about,” a separate exec tells Fowler.
