    Yep - as has been discussed before, Ed B. (formerly of the P-G) reported Bell turned down the 2017 offer after his agent Bakari negotiated it and told the Steelers he would recommend Bell take it

    I am confident Bell also was calling the shots when the same thing happened in 2018 - once the Rams gave Gurley his mega-deal last summer (which with Gurley’s knee problems is potentially a huge mistake by LA), Bell decided to keep to keep it real by not reporting while Bakari did his best to spin that as social justice

    With regard to the Jets, Bell and his agent Bakari, the quote from the movie All The President’s Men applies - “the truth is these aren’t very bright guys, and things got out of hand”

    Sometimes you draft an undersized ILB and get Ryan Shazier - sometimes you don't

    Lee was the 20th overall pick in the 2016 draft. It was a curious choice, because at 6-foot-1 and 232 pounds, he seemed small to play inside linebacker in the 3-4 defense. The coaching staff downplayed the size factor, saying he fit the growing trend of fast linebackers who could play in space against spread offenses.

    The former Ohio State standout struggled in his first two seasons, especially against the run

    Le’Veon Bell Says He’s ‘Here To Win Games’ Suggests He’s Not Concerned With Being Liked

    ....

    I’m sure there have been false reports and speculation about him in the past. But there has also been a lot of true reports and speculation. And it certainly wouldn’t be surprising if this report about Gase were indeed true. After all, there was a firing.

    To hear him say that he’s “here to win football games” and suggesting that he’s not concerned with whether or not he’s liked is pretty rich given his behavior over recent years. The vast majority of the interview that he conducted after signing with the Jets consisted of how unwelcome he felt in Pittsburgh and how much he wanted to play for a team where he felt like he was wanted.

    Many took those comments to be a justification for signing a contract that seemingly was no better, and perhaps even worse, than the reported numbers of the contract that he turned down last summer from the Steelers. And now he’s settling on going to a team who had the third-overall pick and saying he just cares about winning to justify signing with a team where, reportedly, the head coach didn’t want him to be brought in.

    So Le'Veon Bell walked away from $14.5 million last year with a coach that wanted him and now will play for $14.5 million this year with a coach that doesn't want him. Got it. #Jets

    If in New York, they thought Santonio Holmes was a cancer, you did not see anything for Bell .... Just be patient, it'll come!
