The New York Jets had a problem. Head coach Adam Gase couldn't get along with running back Le'Veon Bell. So they chose Gase, and after a day spent searching for someone, anyone, to trade for Bell and his contract, they gave up and cut Bell loose.
Bell signed a four-year, $52.5-million contract with New York in the 2019 offseason. He played 17 games in a Jets uniform, gaining 1,363 yards from scrimmage. The Jets are still responsible for Bell's $6 million salary in 2020, but some of that will be offset if he signs with another team.
UPDATE: Bell has apparently chosen the Super Bowl champion Chiefs over the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills.
