The Jets are having a rough year as many felt they would, but now it sounds like for the right price one of their premiere players they just inked this offseason might be there for the taking.
That player is running back Le’Veon Bell, who was just signed this offseason to a big contract by the Jets to the tune of four years at $52 million.
Manish Mehta who covers the Jets for the NY Daily News broke the story that Bell is on the trade block and the Jets are fielding offers.
The Daily News has learned that Gang Green is amenable to dealing the perennial Pro Bowl running back for the right price before the 4 p.m. trade deadline. Although it’s unclear what that price tag has been during discussions, there are legitimate buyers. The Jets would unload a big salary as general manager Joe Douglas looks to reshape the roster.
Bell has carried the football 109 times for 349 yards and just one touchdown. He has also caught 32 passes for 187 yards and a score in seven games for the 1-6 Jets.
