Meanwhile, Bell has generated plenty of buzz ahead of free agency and has been most closely linked to the Jets. However, the Raiders are another likely destination given the recent acquisition of Brown and the fact that his former teammate and wide receiver Martavis Bryant is in Oakland as well.

If there's one thing to be learned from Jon Gruden's first year back in Oakland as Raiders coach last season, it's to always expect the unexpected.
