Which NFL team should trade for Le ’ Veon Bell ? Douglas has no ties to the decision to sign Bell , and Gase didn’t seem to want Bell on the team in So let’ s take a look at the team that we think would be the best fit for Bell and could step up with a trade offer before the Tuesday afternoon deadline

Getty Jets RB Le ' Veon Bell . Apparently, the New York Jets no longer have any use for their star running back Le ’ veon Bell . Clearly, Bell is still a very valuable player, and there are likely several teams who are more than interested in his services.

The Jets reportedly considered moving running back Le’Veon Bell ahead of Tuesday’s trade deadline, and the veteran says the Steelers, Packers, Chiefs and Texans all expressed interest in acquiring him.

Appearing on his SiriusXM show “17 Weeks,” Bell said he heard through his agent that those four clubs were trying to trade for him, as Joshua Axelrod of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes.

Pittsburgh, clearly, was the most surprising possible destination mentioned by Bell. He just left the Steelers organization after a tumultuous 2018 in which he sat out the season rather than play on the franchise tag. Given all that went down between Bell and the Steelers, it’s difficult to imagine Pittsburgh’s management re-acquiring the running back, even if he is now placated with a long-term contract.

Redskins reportedly calling other teams in an effort to trade Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman

  Redskins reportedly calling other teams in an effort to trade Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman Washington is looking to sell off some pieces at the NFL Trade DeadlineNorman, 31, was a fifth round pick out of Coastal Carolina in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. He spent four years there until the team placed the franchise tag upon him and then later reversed course allowing him to become a free agent. Washington signed him to a five-year deal worth $75 million in April of 2016. Pelissero notes that the cornerback is owed almost $6 million for the rest of the season. He has one year remaining on his contract worth $15.5 million but any team would be able to get out from underneath the deal by paying his $3 million signing bonus after the season.

The NFL trade deadline made them stars of a daily reality show that is often quick to strip context for the Other players, like Le ’ Veon Bell , seemed more concerned about a very difficult choice between a I think not being able to trade Bell , who had the Jets bidding against themselves in free agency

The New York Jets are open to trading running back Le ' Veon Bell before Tuesday' s 4 p.m. ET deadline , sources told The Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and Eagles could all have some level of interest in acquiring Bell , suggests Mehta, who adds the price to do so is unclear.

The Packers, too, don’t make much sense as a landing spot given the continued breakout of Aaron Jones and the steady presence of backup Jamaal Williams. Houston, meanwhile, has already traded for two running backs — Duke Johnson and Carlos Hyde — and John McClain of the Houston Chronicle says the Texans were not interested in picking up Bell (Twitter link). Kansas City has deployed LeSean McCoy and Damien Williams with middling results.

“The Jets were really asking for a high price and a lot for me,” Bell said. “On top of that, my actual contract was kind of tough for teams to deal with, which is understandable. Not too many teams want to pay that high of a price for a running back.

“To be honest, I was not trying to take a pay cut, simply for the fact that I sat out a full year of football to get what I earned and deserved. That would’ve kind of defeated the whole purpose, so I didn’t want to do that.”

Bell’s remaining salary in 2019 would have been manageable for just about any team in the NFL, but he’s owed more than $13M in 2020 between his base salary and roster bonus. Most of that money is fully guaranteed, so a club like the Steelers (who have less than $4M in available 2020 funds) would have been hard-pressed to take on that contract.

Bell, 27, has rushed for 349 yards on 108 carries this season (3.2 yard average) and has one touchdown.
