According to NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, the Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly interested in trading for Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell.
Eagles, and others, have interest in Bell; Steelers would be open to a Bell for Earl Thomas swap: https://t.co/5dBGEAeQZa

Bell, age 26, did not participate in Steelers practice and games the past three weeks, piling up numerous fines from the NFL.
Earlier this offseason, Bell was seeking a $17 million contract which Steelers don’t want to pay.
As of now, Steelers are “actively shopping” for trades involving the Pro Bowl running back.

Personally, I don’t think it’s worth paying a running back $17 million for a one-year rental when the Eagles already have Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement.
