After sitting out for an entire season, Le’Veon Bell will return to the NFL, agreeing to a contract that was similar to what was offered to him from Steelers. The former Pro Bowl running back agreed to a 4-year, $52 million deal with the Jets.
Le’Veon Bell: 4 years, $52.5 million with the Jets, per source.

It’s a huge gamble for Bell, who basically missed an entire season hoping to get a huge contract, only to not get the type of money he was looking for.
It’s also a huge gamble for the Jets, giving a 4-year deal to someone who hasn’t played a football game in over a year, but they needed any type of offensive firepower as they rebuild around Sam Darnold.
