This after becoming a free agent for all two days. The Jets released Bell on Tuesday due to a worsening relationship between them and head coach Adam Gase.
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins are the other two teams that are serious about hunting to get the Bell. The Dolphins, Bills, and Chiefs are the next three opponents of the Jets.
Chance? I do not think so!
OK, maybe this is a chance. But Bills coach Sean McDermott is not playing. He expressed his desire for Bell’s desire to land.
Wow, Sean McDermott confirms Bills’ interest in Le’Veon Bell – that’s rare to him: “We always look at every situation, this is one of them. Trying to improve our football team – that’s all I can say so far. . “

The Bills and Chiefs play Monday night. However, Bell will not be able to rehearse at KC until he has at least six straight days of negative covid-19 testing.
Is it worth it?
One of Bell’s former Pittsburgh teammates Bruce Gradkowski, thinks it’s a good idea for the Steelers to get the former Pro Bowler back.
Gradkowski was at 93.7 The Fan on Thursday. And the former quarterback was asked if he would like Bell to return to the Steelers.
“Really,” Gradkowski said. “I do not hesitate. The misconception that he brings drama to the locker room, he is always a great guy of the team. I thought Le’Veon was always a great dude. He did not bring drama to the locker room. He is always working hard. “
That’s true. Bell works hard. And he did not bring drama to the locker room.
He decided not to work, and his one-year absence in the locker room – after he said he would show up here – brought drama.
Fighting like cats and… birds ???
The Baltimore Ravens are furious with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Thus, at least the defensive coordinator is.
Don “Wink” Martindale tapped that the Bengals kicked the final goal on the field to prevent a shutout in Baltimore’s 27-3 victory on Sunday. They did it with only 37 seconds left in the game.
Baltimore improved to 4-1. The Bengals sank to 1-3-1.
Through ESPN.com, Martindale was asked for his reaction to Bengals coach Zac Taylor’s decision.
“He knew what it was because it was horribly quiet when I shouted it all over the field,” Martindale said. “There are some people who accept that as a success. We’ll see. We have a lot of talk about the next time we play with them.”
Eh, the Bengals. You are the Ravens. Very little to say. All.
Former Pitt star Aaron Donald had four sacks last week for the Los Angeles Rams.
He announced Thursday that Washington failed to double him in any of the sacks.
“When I get opportunities to get the blocks one-on-one, I have to take advantage of it and I have to continue to do that, continue to improve myself and continue to try to be productive,” Donald said via of ProfootballTalk. com

Those are some of Washington’s somewhat difficult planning. Donald already has 7.5 sacks to lead the NFL.
