Jets Express Interest In Trading For Le'Veon Bell

The Jets reached out to Pittsburgh about acquiring Bell.

It sure is starting to feel like Le'Veon Bell's days in Pittsburgh are numbered.

The call was described as routine by the source. But that team would likely need to have some unofficial deal in place for Bell before pulling the trigger on any trade with the Steelers.

The Jets haven't yet submitted a concrete offer, according to the report, but are convinced the Steelers are finally willing to part with their disgruntled star. Based on the franchise tag rules, he can't sign a long-term contract (with the Steelers or another team) until after the season.

Any team that wants to trade for Bell will have to wait until the end of the season to hand him the big-money deal he desires.

It's not about teams wanting a talent like Bell. They could make an off-the-books agreement with Bell and his agent, but nothing would be solidified until next March.

Bell, 26, is one of the best backs in football.

The Jets have the available cap space now (about $17 million) and next season (a projected $90-plus million) to land and keep Bell beyond 2018, the Daily News says.

Bell has yet to sign his $14.54 million franchise tag tender. He loses $855,000 each week he does not show up. Bell is reportedly seeking upwards of $15 million per year, which the Steelers were unwilling to give. A team could increase that salary to give Bell incentive to play, but the team could not add years to the contract.
