According to a legit Pittsburgh Steelers source, Le’Veon Bell signing with the New York Jets this offseason is a “foregone conclusion.”
If a solid part of the New York Jets fanbase had its way, current Pittsburgh Steelers holdout stud and eventual NFL free agent, running back Le’Veon Bell, will be making his prominent home address in Northern New Jersey this coming spring.
The Jets remain the leaders of the pack for his services and at least one prominent source within the Steelers organization believes Bell to the Jets is a “foregone conclusion,” via Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report.
“I think it’s a foregone conclusion,” said one Steelers source.
“That’s the place where most of us have him pegged to go,” said one NFC scout.
For those select individuals whose salivation cannot be controlled (while reading this), remember, this is all rhetoric. Whoever these unknown and unnamed folks are Freeman tabbed for his latest B/R masterpiece, they’re simply taking the casual and regular narrative that the Jets are the leaders in the clubhouse to a further level.
It literally means nothing.
Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has made the statement that he will be spending a great chunk of his available $100 million in cap space this spring. Currently sitting at 3-7 in disappointing fashion, perhaps it is a foregone conclusion considering Mikey Mac will need to win in 2019.
Either way, the Jets having any interest in Bell is the incorrect move.
Bell plays running back, folks. It’s the most devalued position in sports and one, in which, money isn’t necessary to invest. What this organization desperately needs is an offensive line. With one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, at the moment, Bell coming to Florham Park would equal a ton of money to go along with a lot of frustration.
Should the New York Jets turn legit attention to Le’Veon Bell’s services, the fanbase should take that action as the final cherry on top of a terrible team-building mindset that looks to attract shiny weapons without real substance (within the trenches).
