New York had been seen as the big time favorites to land the stellar all-around running back. That’s now come to fruition.
This is an absolutely huge get for the Jets. A former All-Pro performer in Pittsburgh, Bell will only help young quarterback Sam Darnold in New York’s backfield.
Prior to sitting out all of last season in hopes of landing a more lucrative pay day, the 27-year-old Bell put up 3,830 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2016 and 2017.
The deal is said to be worth $52.5 million over four seasons.
