The Raiders have a need at running back and have money to spend, so they are a natural fit for rumors - especially after just rolling out the Brinks truck for Brown.
Bell is going to get straight-up paid on his new deal, and there's no question about that at all.
Bell sat out all of the 2018 season rather than play under the franchise tag. Instead, as La Canfora noted, his market was soft as all get out.
Over his four years in the National Football League, he has played in 47 regular-season games (44 starts), in addition to three playoff games, starting all three. He isn't getting that from the Jets - just look at the guaranteed number involved here.
Last season, quarterback Derek Carr failed to send the Raiders back into the playoffs.
R. Kelly released from jail after paying child support
Kelly ", said his attorney, Steve Greenberg , Saturday. "Their mothers and fathers told me, 'We're going to destroy your career'". Kelly faces 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse for allegedly assaulting four women, three of whom were underage at the time.
For the Jets, this is a pretty major win.
And the Jets pounced on a player they think can help Darnold take their offense to another level - despite the fact Bell hasn't played since Pittsburgh's playoff loss to Jacksonville on January 14, 2018. Pair him with Jamison Crowder and the Jets had a nice, albeit expensive, turn in free agency when it comes to offensive acquisitions. They got some in the form of their newest wide receiver, but Bell is a player who could help dramatically change their offense even further.
King noted the New York Jets are the favorite to land Bell, but added Washington and Miami are possible destinations too.
Bell tweeted, "I'm sooooo torn right now", likely in regards to which team he wants to join.
With Anthony Barr choosing to re-sign with the Vikings, the Jets had some additional cap space to offer Bell.
