I think you have the look at the guarantee money of 35 million.  That is basically 3 years of 12 million/season.  Bell has been the most used RB in the game since 2015 and he wanted some security for injury.  I don't approve of him sitting out the season, but the Steelers didn't want to sign him long term so he is banking against a major injury and loss of income.  Really can't blame him.

I imagine Bell had an overinflated value of himself in negotiation with the Steelers.  Then burned his bridges.   Then, took what he could get.
