The Jets should leave Le'Veon Bell to his jet skiing. A trade for the disgruntled star makes little sense, especially since he could be a one-year rental — a ridiculously expensive rental. They'd be better served by rolling that $11 million into next year's cap. Bell could help a win-now team; the Jets aren't a win-now team. The called the Steelers out of due diligence, always looking for a fire sale. If they can get him for a fifth-round pick, sure, they'd be interested. But a third rounder? They won't give up that much. Plus, if Bell doesn't want to play for the Steelers on the franchise tag, why would he want to play for the Jets? The more likely scenario is them making a run at him in March as a free agent, but even that avenue would come with risk. He's a "me" player with a lot of miles on his odometer — not worth a mega contract.
