    The Le'Veon Bell rumor mill is swirling and the New York Jets are one of the first teams to crop up in the gossip columns. New York has reportedly made preliminary overtures to the Pittsburgh Steelers about trading for the disgruntled superstar. However, the talks have not produced anything of substance as the Steelers are rumored to be seeking a third-round draft pick in return for the potential one year rental. Nevertheless, adding Bell as the centerpiece of the Jets’ backfield is intriguing but what are the chances of Bell actually staying beyond this season and will he be worth the princely sum that it will take to keep him as a member of Gang Green for the foreseeable future?

    The verdict is still out on the No. 3 overall pick in the draft Sam Darnold. So far – maybe not so good – but definitely not bad.

    The New York Jets are throwing caution to the wind and trotting out their No. 3 overall pick in the draft to battle the Lions in Detroit in their season opener. Yes, Sam Darnold, the youngest Week 1 starter since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, gets the nod after the Jets traded away Teddy Bridgewater for a third-round pick to the Saints which effectively extinguished any quarterback controversy that was looming. In essence, they not only received a decent pick for the 25-year-old signal caller but got something even more valuable – peace of mind.
