As owner and president of ASAP, LLC, Mohsen Grayeli oversees all business aspects of the real estate holding and project development company. When he isn’t seeking out potential properties to renovate, Mohsen Grayeli enjoys following his favorite National Football League (NFL) team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

With just under a week to play before the team’s first game of the 2017 regular season, Le’Veon Bell signed a one-year, $12.1 million franchise tender offer with the Steelers on September 4. The running back sat out the team’s training camp, but both parties cited no hard feelings, acknowledging the business aspect of football.

The Steelers couldn’t come to a long-term contract agreement with Bell this offseason, but instead placed its franchise tag on him, meaning he would remain under contract for another season. Given those circumstances, Bell decided it would be best to avoid the physical demands of training camp as he didn’t want to risk suffering an injury and jeopardizing a potential massive payday next offseason. He’s certainly worth it; last year alone, Bell scored nine touchdowns and averaged 157 total yards per game, which ranks third all-time among running backs. Through four seasons with the team, the Michigan State alumnus has accumulated over 6,000 combined rushing and receiving yards as well as 31 touchdowns.

An experienced real estate investor and developer, Mohsen Grayeli oversees ASAP, LLC, in Washington, DC. In his free time, Mohsen Grayeli enjoys traveling, playing tennis, and reading. An avid football fan, he also enjoys attending Pittsburgh Steelers games.

The Pittsburgh Steelers organization and Mike Tomlin have agreed to a contract extension that will keep the 45-year-old head coach at the team’s helm through the 2020 season. Tomlin, who is entering his 11th season with the Steelers, was hired in 2007 and has since led the team to two Super Bowl appearances and five AFC North Division titles.

Under Tomlin’s leadership, the Steelers have maintained a 103-57 record over 10 seasons. In reaching the 100-win milestone, Tomlin became the third coach in Steelers history to do so and only the eighth head coach in NFL history to chalk up 100 regular-season wins in their first 10 seasons. He also holds the distinction of reaching 100 career wins more quickly than any previous Steelers coach.
