    The real winner of the Le'Veon Bell deal was...

    With the signing this past weekend of running back Le'Veon Bell, the New York Jets were able to plug a very big hole. For three years now, the Jets have struggled on offense, more specifically, to move the ball on the ground. The roster has been occupied with serviceable running backs but not the every day backs who could be counted on for 25 carries and 100 yards on a consistent basis. They certainly filled that spot with the former Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro.

    NFL Draft - no room for error from New York Jets

    With free agency underway and the NFL draft only a month away, teams are scrambling to fill holes and shore up weaknesses. The New York Jets enter the player acquisition season with lots of salary cap room. That’s a big advantage. However, they also have a sense of desperation after three straight subpar seasons with five or fewer victories. That’s a disadvantage. Altogether, everything adds up to the Jets having no room for error as they move through the draft.

    Head Coach Adam Gase and the Jets organization are clearly committed to making sure fans don’t have to go through another season like 2018 or 2017 or even 2016.

    With the signing of Le'Veon Bell to a four-year deal, the New York Jets and Head Coach Adam Gase were able to check a very import box, the team desperately needed a quality running back. They got him for $52.5 million with the first $25 million guaranteed immediately. While the total value of the deal was slightly less than what the Steelers put on the table last year, guaranteed money is like gold to running backs in the NFL.

    It didn't take long for the Gang Green to find a replacement for departed CB Buster Skrine. The Jets signed CB Brian Poole, formerly of the Atlanta Falcons, to a 1-year $3.5M deal. He was a restricted free agent who wasn't tendered by his former team. Poole, 26, joined Atlanta as an undrafted free agent. He missed just one game in three seasons with the Falcons, starting in 21 games. Last season Poole picked off 3 passes and had 6 pass defenses. He also recorded 74 tackles (53 solo), 3 sacks and 4 tackles for loss.

    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?
