The Pittsburgh Steelers are more than likely going to retain running back Le’Veon Bell in 2018. Both sides are reportedly working towards a long-term deal.
But should anything go awry, Bell could wind up a free agent. As such, New York Jets defensive back Jamal Adams basically volunteered to buy Bell.

A little backstory here is Bell earlier turned down a $60 million cash offer from a fan to play for the Jets.
@L_Bell26 I speak on behalf of the New York Jets, well give you $60 million in cash if you come play for us

Well. Apparently Bell has zero interest in suiting up as a Jet. And, we can tell Adams would love to woo him on board.
Bell’s plan is to set a new market for running backs in 2018. He is well on his way to doing that once he strikes a deal with the Steelers.
Bell averaged 129.7 total yards and 27 touches per game in 2017. He also scored 11 touchdowns. It is no wonder any team in need would love to sign him up.
