The Jets have signed Le’Veon Bell for a four-year, $ 52.5 million contract with a guaranteed $ 27 million when he was a free agent before the 2019 season and have decided to play five games in his second season with the team.
Leaving Bell is not a big surprise, as he has been ineffective on the pitch and seems to contradict head coach Adam Gaze on how he has been used in his entire short time on the team. The latest example came last Sunday, when Bell did not speak to reporters and liked tweets, pointing out that the Jets directed him with only one pass in his loss to the Cardinals.
At a news conference Wednesday, Gasse was asked if he agreed with the notion that the team was abusing Bell in violation. Gaze said it was “irrelevant at the moment” if that was the case.
“It did not work out. It did not work out. We will focus on this game right now, “Gaze told SNY.
Given the team’s 0-5 record and lack of talent, the mention of using Bell will not be the only unimportant thing that will come out of this season of the Jets.
