New York Daily News reporter Manish Mehta was told by sources that the Jets are "looking to trade" Bell before Tuesday's 4 p.m. trade deadline.
Currently, it's unclear what the Jets are seeking in return. But, the market is reportedly red hot for the three-time Pro Bowl running back, with the Texans, Chiefs, and Bills among the front runners to land Bell. The NYDN's sources say that the Jets are looking to unload Bell's massive contract on the right suitor, so that the franchise can jumpstart the rebuilding process.
In May, the NYDN reported that head coach Adam Gase didn't want the team to pursue Bell during the offseason. Gase made it clear that he didn't want to shell out that much money for certain positions, and he also took objection to linebacker CJ Mosley's contract.
It seemed Bell took this personally. Shortly after the Gase rumors made headlines, the running back sent out a tweet in which he claimed to not "jump to conclusions" over false reports.
As of now, Bell is on track to have the worst year of his career. He's averaging a career-low 3.2 yards per carry with just two total touchdowns. If the Jets do decide to ship Bell, here are some teams that we think should trade for the once game-changing running back.
