Le'Veon Bell to sign with New York Jets for $52.5 million

Isaiah Crowell

Multiple NFL sources have told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano that the Jets are believed to be the favorites to land Bell.

He wound up doing it for four years at $52.5 million, per Adam Schefter.

"I'm back in the green baby, let's get it", he wrote. A day later, the numbers are starting to come in for the Raiders' new safety.

Brown will take over the Raiders' left tackle job, and former first-round pick Kolton Miller is expected to slide over to right tackle.

On Monday, Bell tweeted that he was "torn" on what to do. "We going up tonight!"

It's hard not to see this deal and immediately think that Bell made a mistake by not signing one of several deals the Steelers put in front of him back before he was ever thinking about skipping an entire season. The backfield will consist of Bell, Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon. Bilal Powell, the team's fourth-round pick in 2011, is a free agent and unlikely to be back. During that span, he rushed for 5,336 yards and 35 touchdowns and caught 312 passes for 2,660 yards and another seven scores.




The Jets are hoping Bell along with quarterback Sam Darnold, who showed flashes previous year, will be the centerpieces of a return to success for the struggling franchise. That means it will be a span of 19 months in between game appearances by the time the preseason begins in August.

"He's probably one of the best receivers in football, if not, the best".

While there's no real telling how Bell will fare in 2019 and beyond, he already has quite a lot of miles on him.

While Bell skipped all of a year ago, he still figures to be in his prime at age 27. When asked in November what would happen if Bell never returns to the Steelers, coach Mike Tomlin said simply, "So be it". Their offer may have contained a way for them to get out from under the deal more easily than the Jets can.

Instead, it appears Baltimore will turn to a tried and true strategy of finding capable players at value prices to fill their holes and looking to the draft to grow the team for the future. NY also acquired left guard Kelechi Osemele from Oakland over the weekend.
