Le’Veon Bell isn’t interested in signing with the New York Jets.
The all-pro running back who threatened to retire if the Steelers place the franchise tag on him trolled a Jets fan who offered him $60 million to sign with his team:
@L_Bell26 I speak on behalf of the New York Jets, well give you $60 million in cash if you come play for us

Here’s how Bell replied:
🙄 that ain’t enough to come run with the Jets… https://t.co/R0Ockg5Leh

The Jets standout you safety Jamal Adams quickly responded to Bell, promising the Jets, who have a lot of cap space, will surprise the NFL next season:

Before getting eliminated by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round, Bell expressed his desire for the Steelers or another team to value his worth:
“Just get the numbers straight, exactly where we want them. I’m not going to settle for anything, I know what I do and what I bring to the table. I’m not going out here getting the ball 400 times if I’m not getting what I feel I’m valued at.”
The 25-year old running back made $12.1 million this season playing under the franchise tag and is looking to cash in this offseason on a long-term deal.
