All-Pro running back and former Steeler Le’Veon Bell is signing with the New York Jets, according to multiple reports.
Bell, who held out the entire 2018 season to get a long term deal is expected to sign a hefty contract, upwards of $14 Million per year with a majority of it guaranteed. He turned down a 5-year, $70 Million offer from Pittsburgh during the season, with $33 Million in guaranteed money.
UPDATE: Le’Veon Bell’s new contract with the Jets is for 4 years and $52.5 Million, with $35 Million guaranteed. With incentives, the contract could max out at $61 Million.
The decrease from the Steelers offer during the season and his new contract in New York stems mostly from James Connor’s performance during the season, devaluing Bell’s perceived worth on the open market
