BREAKING: New York Jets Ink RB Le’Veon Bell To Four-Year Massive Deal

After sitting out the year with the Pittsburgh Steelers, All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell is signing a four-year, $52.5 million deal with the New York Jets, a source told Adam Schefter.

Bell sat our the entire 2018 season while being on the franchise tag after failing to agree on a new contract last summer.

Bell officially became a free agent when Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert opted not to place a franchise or transition tag on him for the 2019 season.

The two-time All-Pro running back, after gaining nearly 2,000 total yards during the 2017 season, opted to eschew the $14.5 million franchise tag in 2018 — forgoing about $855,000 per game — so he could preserve his long-term viability for a big contract in free agency this offseason.

The Jets are betting big on Le’Veon Bell after missing 2018. Today was a whirlwind of a day with another star, Odell Beckham Jr. being traded to the Cleveland Browns. 

The Steelers also let go of Antonio Brown earlier this week, trading him to the Oakland Raiders.
