The New York Jets have now reportedly given Le’Veon Bell and his camp a deadline while the free agent toys with fans’ emotions.
At this point, the man is simply toying with the emotions of so many lives, intentionally or not.
Le’Veon Bell has changed the accent color of his Twitter account to green.

First and foremost, there are conflicting accounts. ESNY’s own Michael Nania threw this goodie into the mix, suggesting Bell’s color green has remained intact or has been prominent prior:

Secondly, it’s the color green. The Green Bay Packers? Money? Or how about the tremendous recreational activity many prominent athletes take to while immersed in our specific culture?
Yeah. Who knows. Let’s move forward to the real stuff.
The #Jets have given Le’Veon Bell a deadline to decide if he is going to sign or not, per sources. They’re not waiting forever.

Bell, 27, remains the top dog of the NFL open market. It’s perfectly acceptable to believe he’s the wrong move for any team, based on the rigors of the hard salary cap and the cheap value the running back position breeds, but the man’s talent remains true.
The Jets have already come to terms with inside linebacker C.J. Mosley (making him the highest-paid inside backer of all-time), wide receiver Jamison Crowder (filling the slot hole), and wide receiver Josh Bellamy (lending a helping hand towards special teams).
Stay tuned. Le’Veon Bell is still dangling in the NFL free agent wind.
