    Keep Jason Garrett at Dallas and Marvin Lewis at Cincinnati.

    No need to fire coaches every season that they are mediocre and laughable.

    Bell was a great example of not what to do in contract negotiations when you have a drug and injury history. He could have played out the contract in good faith and taken home the $ except he wanted the Rooney's to kiss his ring. Never going to happen. He is done in Pittsburgh.

    Everybody keeps saying that "some team" is going to pay him what he wants. I didn't believe it in September and I certainly don't believe it now.

    The amount of cap space teams like the Jets have in 2019 is jaw dropping. They have to pay someone. Why not Bell?

    I agree.

    I wouldn't pay him what he wants.

    The Steelers won't pay him what he wants.

    Most of the teams in the NFL won't pay him what he wants, but desperate teams that need to overpay free agents to come play for their shitty organizations are willing to do things that keep them as shitty organizations.

    There is always an idiotic organization that gets fooled by an agent, is desperate to land an elite player, and ends up competing with themselves on a financial level to overpay that player to play for them.

    I'm not convinced he's going to get $19 million a year with a huge portion of it guaranteed. I wouldn't do it. You wouldn't do it....but some teams aren't rational.

    Jets and Raidahs have tons of cap space AND a need... plus, the latter has a coach who goes against the grain.

    There is always a team wanting to “win March”. Many years, it has been Dan Snyder.

    The Raiders may not have as much of a need as many think though. Chris Warren III was tearing it up in preseason until he got injured. He looked like the real deal so they may not be so fast to empty the bank account on Bell...but then again, it is the Raiders we are talking about.

    Yep - refusing to pay a 27 year old Khalil Mack but breaking the bank for a 27 year old Bell would be a Gruden move

    I heard a rumor that the ravens might be interressed, I do not know if it's credible, but I do not remember the last time the ravens signed a big free agent and I do not know if the ravens are going to have the cap space even if they release Flacco.

    But any team that is not close to winning a super bowl like the jets, raiders, dolphins, etc. would be dumb to sign a 27 years old running back to a big contract.

    Ravens are headed for a teardown if they do not make the playoffs (and maybe even if they do) - this was their all in year

    I heard several times during Sunday's game/post-game the Ravens are the oldest team in the league

    Throwing $$$ at Bell would not seem to be the cornerstone for a multi-year rebuild

    I can't vouch for the accuracy of these stats but according to this, they were closer to the middle of the pack by final roster cutdowns, along with the Steelers.

    We need to look at the average age to the starters, not every player on the roster.
