New York Jets release star running back Le'Veon Bell after trade talks

  New York Jets release star running back Le'Veon Bell after trade talks The New York Jets decided to move on from Le'Veon Bell just a year and a half after signing the RB to a massive long-term contract."After having conversations with Le'Veon and his agent and exploring potential trade options over the past couple of days, we have made the decision to release Le'Veon," Jets GM Joe Douglas said in a statement. "The Jets organization appreciates Le'Veon's efforts during his time here and we know he worked hard to make significant contributions to this team. We believe this decision is in the best interests of both parties and wish him future success.

Purdue receiver Rondale Moore opted back in to play during the 2020 season. However, Moore's season debut won't happen Saturday when the Boilermakers host Iowa at Ross-Ade Stadium.

Purdue announced Friday that Moore would not be available for the season opener. No additional information was available at the time of the press release.

Coach Jeff Brohm was asked about Moore's availability during Thursday's interview session with local media.

"Just like with everybody, we don’t want to give any information out specifically until game day, and then we’ll go from there," said Brohm, who confirmed on Monday that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Brohm's brother, Brian, will be acting head coach on Saturday against the Hawkeyes.

The talented Moore, who as a freshman ignited the fan base with his electric plays, initially decided to bypass the season to prepare for next spring's NFL draft. But when the Big Ten announced it would play this season - and provide daily antigen testing - Moore returned to the program,

"For me, I think the whole decision behind me opting out was the uncertainty and to secure my safety and my mother’s safety," Moore said on ESPN in September. "It was important to me to dig deeper and find out some more information and hopefully, the Big Ten would come to terms and find a way to get things done and we would have a season.

  Big Ten power rankings: Ohio State stays on top while Penn State falls Ranking the Big Ten from first (Ohio State) to worst (Michigan State) after the league's opening weekend.While Ohio State is solidly in first, the Nittany Lions cede second place to one of a handful of contenders: Indiana, which beat PSU in overtime; Wisconsin, which sailed past Indiana; or Michigan, which opened with a solid win in prime time against Minnesota.

Moore played in only four games last season due to a hamstring injury against Minnesota. It's unclear if the latest development is injury-related or for another reason.

Earlier this week, Purdue athletic director Mike Bobinski and Brohm both said no players had tested positive for COVID-19 since daily testing began on Sept. 30.

Opinion: In odd way, COVID-19 helps make BYU football relevant again .
BYU has spent the last decade trying to keep up the appearance of being a national power while lacking the money or the access of a Power Five team.That’s generally how it’s gone for the Cougars since declaring independence from the Mountain West Conference in 2011, a project born of ambition bordering on delusion.
