Le’Veon Bell is headed to the Big Apple
Just when you thought you heard it all, Le’ Veon Bell took to his social media to announce that he was signing with the New York Jets.
Day two just ended with a bang! Heading into day three of NFL free agency the former Pittsburgh Steelers running back is ended his year-long sit out by signing a four-year deal, $52.5 million ($35 million guaranteed) with the Jets.
I’m back in the green baby, let’s get it

This whole Bell saga has been very confusing to say the least. It wasn’t very long ago when Bell was telling fans on Twitter that he would need more than what he currently got offered from the NY Jets to even play for them.

Jets fans already forgot about that though. They should be thrilled that they were able to land a star player like Bell. It also takes pressure off of Sam Darnold.
At 27 years-old, there is some concern of wear and tear with Bell, but if he goes out and performs like the way we’ve seen him in 2017, then there would be hope of some prime years left for Bell as a Jet.
Bell was named first-team All-Pro with Pittsburgh twice and has rushed for over 1,200 yards three times in his career. Bell is also quite the pass-catcher himself. He had 75 catches in 2016 and 85 catches in 2017.
