Le'Veon Bell Agrees To Four-Year, $52.5M Deal With Jets

Former Patriots LT Trent Brown Reportedly Signing 4-Year Deal With Raiders

After free agent linebacker Anthony Barr signed back with the Vikings following reports that he was headed to the Jets, the team is now getting "antsy" with free agent running back Le'Veon Bell and will reportedly rescind their offer if he doesn't accept it tonight, according to Mike Silver.

Considering what many assumed Bell would command on the open market, NY made out well in its deal with the All-Pro running back. The Jets had given Bell a deadline and there was a sense that if money wasn't the most important thing Bell would rather play for the Raiders than the Jets.

While that is very good money, it falls short of what the Steelers offered him last July, which was reported to be a five-year, $70 million deal that included $33 million guaranteed. The maximum value could hit $61 million with incentives.

Instead, the Jets landed Bell with a deal that will only pay him a little more than $13 million per year.

At 27 years old, Bell is one of the best running backs in the league. NY recognized his market and, despite a push from the San Francisco 49ers, remained firm in its offer. Bell's dreams of being the NFL's highest-paid running back also didn't come to fruition, as Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley ($14.375 million APY) still holds that honor.

Jets fans can take solace in the fact that the front office landed an established star at an extremely reasonable price.
