Mandatory minicamps are kicking off in various places around the NFL this week. Players will descend on team facilities for workouts, scheme installments, seven-on-sevens, drills and more. Some players, though, will not attend for one reason or another.
Two players set to skip their team’s minicamps are Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, according to a report from NFL.com. Both the Steelers and Rams start minicamp Tuesday.
Bell wasearlier this offseason. He and the Steelers have until July 15 to reach an agreement on a long-term contract, but the Steelers are reportedly comfortable letting him work on the tag for the 2017 season. He’s set to be paid around $12 million on that contract, making him the highest-paid running back in the NFL this season.
