Disagree.    Bell is a wrecking crew with all the moves.   

 

Jets/Bills are gonna be tough games for years to come. 

Disagree completely. 

 

Bell has had the privilege of playing with a hall of fame Qb, and a hall of fame Wr his whole career.  Its easy to look good when you are surrounded by a hall of fame supporting cast that is nearly impossible to game plan to stop. 

 

Lets see what Bell is capable of surrounded by subpar talent, with a huge bull's-eye on his back.

 

Conner's production in Pittsburgh this year should have spoke volumes. 

 

Lesean Mccoy is twice the back as Bell, and hes done it surrounded by ***** Qbs and ***** supporting cast most of his career.

Yes, lord knows we would have no use for a 26-year old RB who has the MOST YARDS FROM SCRIMMAGE PER GAME OF ANY RB IN NFL HISTORY.  

 

Lots of touches. He could just as easily crash as he could succeed.

 

Plus who knows how his body will react to not playing for a full year.

 

And he is a serious head case.

 

Let the Jets deal with him. Thank you.

I’m actually more happy they missed out on Paradis than being upset they got Bell.

 

I wanted Bell and I don’t know how close we were in negotiations and interest, but RB’s are easier to find than any other position in football.

We just need to bulk up our defensive line, and if there’s a LB capable of running with Bell, it’s Edmunds.

So Darnold and Mayfield both got shiny toys today.....

 

 

 

And because Allen is in Buffalo he only gets cheap plastic Happy Meal toys.  Same old Bills!

Ouch. Didn't the Steelers previously offer him 5 years 70mil before the holdout? Either he's not very smart, or things really are that bad in Pitt..

Jets will be better, Bills will be better.  And Bell's ego caused him to potentially lose$$.

Yep, this is really all there is to it.  I'll be curious to see what sort of motivation Bell brings to the field, though.  He lost the game of chicken he was playing -- got splattered by the oncoming vehcle, actually -- and I wonder if the "want to" is really there.

 

The Jets will be a factor if Darnold takes the next step -- that's the key to it all.  Just like the Bills and Allen.

Way more than the 17 milion guranteed Pittsburgh apparantly offered.  He still passed on $14.5 million last year so it may be close to a wash.

Steelers offered 33 mill guaranteed. He got 2 mill more gtd from Jets,  but lit 14.5 on fire by sitting out. He got played. His agent should be fired. And apparently it truly was only the Jets offering him the whole time.

Former Steelers’ RB Le’Veon Bell plans to sign with…the New York Jets, a league source tells ESPN

 
 
And the wait is finally over.....
 
Pretty blah.......  Not really concerned about him at all.  Hopefully they paid him a ton.....

good they can blow their cap on the shiny object.   this is a passing league.  they still don't have any WRs who scare me even a little

He took a pay cut by taking last year off and not signing the contract that the Steelers originally offered.  He deserved it.

He has ended up losing a bunch of money by sitting out and turning down the last offer from the Steelers.  It will be interesting to see how good he really is without the Pittsburgh o-line.  James Connor and Curtis Samuel looked pretty good running behind that line.  I'm not surprised that no team wanted to give him a contract to equal or exceed the Gurley deal.  I'm really glad that the Bills have stayed away from the Bell and AB drama queens.

Bills fans are comedy gold with a hint of bipolar i swear... I see a bunch of people wanting Bell then Bell signs with the Jets and now it's, he's not that scary lol...

 

My take is the Jets got themselves a bonafide back and Osemele was a great pickup... They still have their 3rd overall pick also... We did good ourselves and I believe Beane still has 1 major trade/pickup left in him before we're done with Free Agency but to just discount the Jets totally for the moves they made is just ridiculous... The Jets got better... This you can't deny...

He turned down 5/70.

Then missed a season (and 14.5 million)

Now might make 52.5 (potentially 61)

 

Thats a loss.

 

Plus he’s 27 with 1,500+ touches and a missed season under his belt.

 

Good player, but he’s a RB. And his backup in Pitt just stepped in and basically replicated his production (before injury).

 

The Jets can have him.

 

I’ll add in turning down the chance to play out your career in a city of legends that would embrace him in Pittsburgh. Legacy type stuff. 

 

Worse team, WAY worse Oline, and probably less long term money. 

 

Solid move, bell. Lolol

On paper? Yes.

 

LB has been out of football for a year. It also seems the Jets were bidding against themselves, dumb asses.They are the Jets, they will always suck.

 

There are a lot of knee jerk, big splash by name type of fans here. Most do not know ***** about the dynamics of the sport.

Everyone wants their team in the media spotlight.

 

These type of free agents rarely make a splash. LB is a stupid man. He will never make up for the lost season. There will be problems in New Jersey with him.

 

This fan was never enamored with Bell, I’m not enamored with any RB, or receiver.
