Le’Veon Bell throws serious shade at the New York Jets and their chances to sign him. Jets do some roster maneuvering and Gang Green legend Kevin Mawae could be headed to PFHOF.

With over $100 million dollars expected in free agency money, the New York Jets are in a great position. With that said, fans have already started to speculate where they could allocate some of those funds.

Some have made the argument that perhaps Le’Veon Bell (if he reaches free agency) would make sense on the green and white.

A Jets fan named Erich Sternkopf decided to take things into his own hands in regards to the contract negotiations with free agent to be Le’Veon Bell tweeting this:

Not a bad opening offer. Sixty million in cold hard cash would usually get it done unless, of course, you’re a three-time Pro Bowler with a hungrier appetite:

While it’s certainly disappointing for Jets’ fans, it’s actually bittersweet because the Mike Maccagnan can use those funds to help other areas.

And let’s be honest, the running back position is easier to replace than most thanks to the NFL Draft providing cheap labor.

The Jets are going north of the border to bring in a special talent who could help them in the future.

“The Jets signed LB Micah Awe to a reserve/future contract. Awe, a 24-year-old Lagos, Nigeria native, played with the BC Lions in 2017 and was credited with 54 defensive tackles while lining mostly weakside linebacker”, via Jets Team Reporter Eric Allen.

Also another nugget, Jets legend Kevin Mawae could be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this weekend.

“The 2018 Class will be announced Saturday evening during NFL Honors, which will air at 9 p.m. on NBC. Mawae will find out earlier as the program will be taped at the University of Minnesota from 6-8 p.m. No more than five Modern-Era Finalists can be selected in a given year,” per NewYorkJets.com.
