Le'Veon Bell became one of the highest-paid running backs in the NFL after signing with the New York Jets in March. But his first season with the new club hasn't produced the results he might have expected.© Icon Sportswire / GettyDespite posting just 508 yards and three touchdowns through 10 games, Bell has made peace with his free agency choice. "I made a decision," he said, according to Manish Mehta of New York Daily News. "And I'll live with it."The 27-year-old back hasn't eclipsed 100 rushing yards in a game this season, and he's posted a career-low 3.2 yards per carry.
New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell voiced his frustration with the NFL's drug testing policy on Wednesday, saying in a tweet he's been subjected to five "'random' HGH blood test(s)" in the last 10 weeks.
"@NFL I'm not doing another after today, whatever y'all lookin for it obviously ain't there & I'm not about to keep allowing y'all to stick me with those dirty ass needles..find the players who really do that HGH (expletive) & get off me.."
Jets' Adams clears air with Douglas, Gase about trade talk
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Jamal Adams finally cleared the air with Joe Douglas and Adam Gase. The New York Jets safety spoke with the general manager and head coach Monday, six days after Adams said he was "hurt" by being "shopped" by the team in trade talks. Adams chatted last week with team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson, but wasn't ready to sit down with either Douglas or Gase to discuss the situation. Adams let his emotions cool, and then had the peace talks."We just cleared it up," Adams said Thursday. "(Douglas) apologized, I apologized. Simple.
In a later tweet, Bell said he believed the NFL was testing him from HGH because they requested blood samples rather than a urine test.
During training camp this summer, Bell was pulled off the field during each of the first two practices of training camp to complete drug tests.
"Since he wasn't here in the spring they have to do everything now," coach Adam Gase told reporters then. "There's nothing we can do about it."
While a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2016, Bell was given a four-game suspension for failing to appear for a mandatory drug test. The ban was reduced to three games after he appealed.
In his first year with the Jets, Bell has three rushing touchdowns and 508 yards through 10 games. He also has 46 catches for 309 receiving yards.
Danny Green got randomly drug-tested day after huge put-back dunk
For Green, who takes most of his shots from behind the three-point line, the dunk was his first of the season and just the 48th of his 11-year career (per Basketball Reference). Interestingly enough, one of Green’s fellow Laker guards knows all about catching supposedly random drug tests under suspect circumstances as well.
