Le'Veon Bell Agrees To Four-Year, $52.5M Deal With Jets

There was never any question that the Jets should go after Bell in free agency, but NY needed to be smart in doing so.

As ESPN's Adam Schefter broke mid-segment on SportsCenter, Bell ended up with a four-year, $52.5 million deal, which has $35 million in guarantees but could rise to close to $61 million, with incentives.

That's bad news for a team that could use some help in the running game to ease the pressure on quarterback Sam Darnold and the passing game.

It's fair to wonder whether Bell cost himself significant money by sitting out last season and refusing to accept the Steelers' franchise tag.

Who is William 'Rick' Singer, the college admissions cheating scandal's alleged ringleader?
Court papers say a cooperating witness met with Huffman and her husband at their Los Angeles home and explained the scam to them. Those indicted allegedly paid bribes from $200,000 to up to $6 million each to get their children into the elite schools.

But there's no denying his talent.

The pertinent issue right now, though, is whether or not the Jets are that team. Bell is known for not just being an effective running back but a solid receiver as well. Bell's dreams of being the NFL's highest-paid running back also didn't come to fruition, as Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley ($14.375 million APY) still holds that honor.

The Raiders did make an offer to Bell and there was some real buzz in the building around noon on Tuesday. It's rare that a player of Bell's caliber dictates only just above $13 million per year, but NY made it work and will come away with a huge free agency victory as a result.
