|Le’Veon Bell would be the weapon that Sam Darnold desperately needs, but it’d be foolish to believe that he’s a slam dunk to land in green-and-white. The Jets will not break the bank in free agency for the dynamic playmaker, according to sources.
That doesn’t mean they won’t make a fair and competitive offer. It simply means that they aren’t handing over a blank check for his services. (New York Daily News)|
FFToday's Take: The Daily News' Manish Mehta mentions the Jets, Buccaneers, Eagles, Raiders and perhaps the Dolphins as potential fits for Bell. The reality is that Bell, who reportedly turned down a five-year, $70 million last summer that included $33 million in guarantees, will be lucky to come anywhere close to those marks in free agency after a year away from the game. Bell should resume workhorse status wherever he lands, but he may be a low-end RB1 outside of the Steelers' fantasy-friendly offense.
