Pittsburgh Steelers rumors were addressed during the July 20 episode of "Get Up" on ESPN. The hosts discussed the Steelers, the contract issues with Le'Veon Bell, and how the window on the team could close very soon.

One of the storylines discussed was that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could be considering retirement. The show stated that Roethlisberger has talked about retirement and host Mike Greenberg made a bold statement. He stated that he feels this will be the last season that Roethlisberger, wide receiver Antonio Brown, and running back Le'Veon Bell play on the same team.

When speaking about Bell, Greenberg stated that "I think everyone seems to agree that this will be his last season in Pittsburgh." Bell has been given the franchise tag by the Steelers again, despite pressing the team to give him a lucrative long-term contract. It has led to some animosity from one of the best players in the NFL. It also creates a scenario where he could leave Pittsburgh during free agency.

Addressing the Pittsburgh Steelers rumors

"If this group is going to win a title, I believe this is the last chance they have to do it." This is the statement that Mike Greenberg made as he asked his co-hosts to discuss the rumors of the Pittsburgh Steelers breaking up the core of the roster very soon.

They agreed with him and added head coach Mike Tomlin to the conversation. While this is just conjecture, it certainly speaks to a lot of the sentiments among fans and other NFL analysts.

Fantasy football implications

When it comes to fantasy football, the trio of Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown is one of the best, if not the best, in the entire NFL.

Bell and Brown are routinely drafted in the first round and they have every incentive to put up huge numbers during the 2018 NFL season. Bell, who would like to prove that he deserves to be one of the highest-paid players in the game, has extra motivation to play even harder this year. While that works with the assumption that he hasn't been playing hard in the past, many athletes benefit from having a spark to work with.

During the NFL offseason, the Super Bowl odds for the Pittsburgh Steelers were placed at 8-1. It clearly shows that the team is one of the favorites to emerge from the AFC. They will have to likely get through the New England Patriots again, with rising threats from teams like the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs. With a strong core, no matter how many Pittsburgh Steelers rumors float around the sports talk shows, the talent is certainly there to take this roster all the way to a Super Bowl.
