Barnwell: Where could Le ' Veon Bell land ? He sat out all of 2018 in a contract dispute and then did nothing in his time with the Jets after signing in 2019. Since the start of last season, Bell has averaged 3.3 yards per carry, which ranks 48th out of 49 backs.

Could Le ' Veon Bell be headed back to Pittsburgh? It's certainly a possibility . The 28-year-old running back reportedly wants a trade from the Jets , according to multiple reports that surfaced Well, there's one team that should consider trading for the running back, and it's a team both Bell and the

If you buy into the multiplying reports emerging from New York – sorry, rustic New Jersey – the Jets are eager to trade running back Le'Veon Bell.

If you think you've heard Bell's name on the block before, well ... yep.

The Pittsburgh Steelers never managed to deal the two-time All-Pro in 2018, when Bell wound up sitting out the season rather than play on a $14.5 million franchise tag.

Bell signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract with the Jets last year. Since then, the deal has mostly served to spotlight philosophical differences between embattled coach Adam Gase and former general manager Mike Maccagnan – he was fired two months after importing Bell – as well as an apparent undertow of friction between Gase and Bell himself. The coach has, on multiple occasions, publicly attempted to affirm his relationship with Bell amid rumors he never wanted him on the roster in the first place or while doing damage control when the seven-year veteran sends cryptic signals on social media that seemingly place him at odds with Gase.

New Orleans Saints are talking with LSU officials about playing home games at Tiger Stadium

  New Orleans Saints are talking with LSU officials about playing home games at Tiger Stadium The New Orleans Saints are talking with LSU officials about playing some of their home games in Tiger Stadium this season. " The Saints remaining home schedule follows: Sunday, Oct. 25, Carolina, Noon Sunday, Nov. 15, San Francisco, 3:25 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22, Atlanta, Noon Sunday, Dec. 20, Kansas City, 3:25 p.m. Friday, Dec. 25, Minnesota, 3:30 p.m. Munson said the two parties have not decided on a date for the first Saints game at LSU. Saints communications director Greg Bensel released a statement about possible Saints home games in Tiger Stadium on Tuesday.

Bell will be able to shop himself to other teams and sign an offer sheet, but the Steelers will retain the ability to match. They could still be in a position to say, Le ' Veon Bell gives us our best shot to win it next year, especially if Conner goes down. Watch Now: Off the Bench: Where will Le ' Veon end up?

In this brief video i talk about two teams that Le ' veon Bell could possible be going to next year. It has been trending that The Raiders are looking to lure Le ' veon Bell out west, but this team is certainly messed up from the top down. Le ' Veon Bell : I'll Sign with NY Jets for 0 Million! |

The Jets attempted to jettison Bell last season, per multiple reports, but found no takers for a player whose income averages $13.1 million annually. Among running backs, only Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott and Alvin Kamara – all substantially more productive players than Bell at this point – earn more on average.

The Jets will have paid Bell the entirety of his $27 million in guarantees by the end of this season, when his base salary is $8.5 million. He's due $8 million in base salary next year and $9.5 million in 2022 – quite a lot of cheddar for a guy who's averaged 80.2 yards from scrimmage per outing since coming to New York and 3.3 yards per carry. (Bell averaged 1 yard more per rush with the Steelers and nearly 129 yards from scrimmage per game.)

He's also already missed three games in 2020 with a hamstring injury. And while Bell's disappointing stint in New York isn't entirely his fault, it's hard to foresee much of a market building for an expensive 28-year-old who plays a position that generally isn't earmarked for significant cap resources.

  Opinion: COVID-19 didn't defeat the Tennessee Titans, and neither has any NFL team yet The Tennessee Titans were ready, and they had a blast after being sidelined for two weeks, rolling past a good opponent in the Buffalo Bills.Embarrassed, frustrated, angry, sad – you name it, the Titans were there.

Talk that the Steelers could trade unsigned franchise running back Le ' Veon Bell continues, and at least one interested team has been identified. Presumably the Steelers wouldn’t trade Bell for anything less than the compensatory pick they would get if he leaves in free agency next year.

Which leads us to Le ' Veon Bell . Barring the most unforeseen revelation of this new year, the Pro Bowl running back is going to be hit with the franchise tag for the second offseason in Here, we've got give teams we think make the most sense as Le ' Veon Bell landing spots in the event of an unlikely trade

Regardless, if the Jets are willing to receive – quarters on the dollar? dimes? – to move on from Bell, here are six (sort of) teams that might emerge as potential suitors ahead of the Nov. 3 trade deadline:

Chicago Bears: Effective as big-bodied possession receiver Allen Robinson can be, QB Nick Foles isn't working with any dynamic weapons – a problem exacerbated by the season-ending loss of RB Tarik Cohen to a knee injury. Bell doesn't possess Cohen's jitterbug factor, but he is a natural receiver who could complement Robinson and No. 1 RB David Montgomery, while also spelling the latter and even sharing the field with him. Improbable as the Bears' 4-1 start is, they're solidifying themselves in the wild-card race and are only a half-game behind the undefeated Green Bay Packers in the NFC North. But adding reinforcements seems imperative if Chicago is to remain in playoff contention.

Kansas City Chiefs: Since rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire's 138-yard rushing outburst in his pro debut, the champs have averaged a pedestrian (for them) 107.8 yards per game on the ground. Edwards-Helaire is clearly the future here – and the present, too. But with Damien Williams opting out of this season, K.C. looks disturbingly thin behind their first-round pick. Bell would provide not only insurance but could also make an instant impact as a change-of-pace or third-down back – surely able to chew up chunks of yardage given the space created underneath as WRs Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman and TE Travis Kelce stretch defenses to their limits.

Jets' Gase says it was 'best that we part ways' with Bell

  Jets' Gase says it was 'best that we part ways' with Bell NEW YORK — The New York Jets' decision to move on from Le'Veon Bell was a stunner. For a while now, though, it appeared inevitable. The star running back never seemed to truly mesh with Adam Gase or his offence during the past season-plus. And Bell made it clear he wasn't thrilled with his role. So, his sudden release Tuesday night wasn't completely a surprise — although the timing was. Rather than the Jets waiting to try to trade him at the deadline in three weeks, they instead decided to cut ties now with a player for whom there were such high hopes. “That was kind of the consensus we came to last night,” Gase said Wednesday.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Worth considering, unlikely as a reunion seems. Durability isn't starting RB James Conner's calling card, and second-year understudy Benny Snell Jr. has four career receptions. And where else could Bell make an immediate splash given his familiarity with QB Ben Roethlisberger and this proud team's culture? And sure would be nice to play relevant games again, Pittsburgh off to its first 4-0 start since the Steel Curtain era. And who knows? A reconciliation really might work long term when considering Conner is unsigned beyond this season.

San Francisco 49ers: Let's first acknowledge they've got a fleet of running backs that includes Raheem Mostert, Jerick McKinnon, Tevin Coleman (currently injured) plus FB Kyle Juszczyk. And yet this sputtering offense, which barely cracks the top 10 in rushing yards per game, needs some kind of spark. Bell could conceivably provide that even if used primarily out of the slot, which he's certainly capable of doing – and especially if he were to join such a raw group of receivers.

Tennessee Titans: Pop quiz – who steps into the breach if 2019 rushing champ Derrick Henry goes down? Answer: Who knows? The depth chart suggests rookie Darrynton Evans and/or Jeremy McNichols would attempt to fill the void, but would they really be enough to sustain a team that rode Henry to the brink of the Super Bowl last season? Even if Henry continues to mow down opposing defenders without a sustaining a scratch, it would still make sense to kick the tires on Bell given what an extremely limited receiver Henry continues to be.

No 'Thursday Night Football' NFL game for Week 6. Here's why.

  No 'Thursday Night Football' NFL game for Week 6. Here's why. The Bills were supposed to be hosting the Chiefs on "Thursday Night Football" for NFL Week 6, but COVID-related schedule changes pushed it to Monday.Except this week, there is no Josh Allen vs. Patrick Mahomes showdown on "Thursday Night Football.

Team X: Admittedly, a copout answer. But a lot can happen between now and the completion of Week 8, the final round of games preceding the trade deadline. Cohen and Saquon Barkley are already gone for the year (not that the Giants will be in the market). But McCaffrey continues to sit with a high ankle sprain, and the Browns' Nick Chubb – he finished second to Henry in rushing last year – is currently on injured reserve with a knee injury. Meanwhile, teams with legitimate playoff inspirations – think Seahawks, Colts, Raiders, Cowboys, Eagles and Saints – are just one catastrophic backfield injury from seeing their hopes dissipate. And if you're Jets GM Joe Douglas, a desperate trade partner is the one you want to dance with.
