Jets Free Agent Signings

Jets to sign Le’Veon Bell

Admin - March 13, 2019

Well, unless we'll see another change of heart in the next 24 hours, the Jets have reportedly grabbed the biggest prize of this year's free agency. According to ESPN, RB Le'Veon Bell has agreed to terms with the Gang Green, adding a multidimensional threat to the struggling Jets' offense. The deal is $52.5M for 4 years.

Bell, 27, spent his entire career with the Steelers, infamously sitting out last season due to a contract dispute. He started in 62 games for Pittsburgh, amassing 5,336 rushing yards and 2,660 receiving yards. He also scored 35 rushing and 7 receiving touchdowns.

The Jets now have a legitimate versatile weapon in their offensive backfield. They still need to strengthen the offensive line and add a playmaker at wide receiver. If Bell is still anything like he was in his last two seasons in Pittsburgh (over 1,200 rushing yards in each season), the Jets offense will be a force to be reckoned with.
