In shocking news, reports surfaced that the New York Jets were seeking to trade their star offseason acquisition Le’Veon Bell before the 4PM deadline.
According to Connor Hughs of The Athletic NYC, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans are most interested.
From my understanding, talking to sources, #Jets aren’t shopping LeVeon Bell as much as teams are calling them. They heard fire sale, and phoned Douglas to see price.

Both teams are making a playoff push, and having a talent like Le’Veon bell in the backfield to complement either Patrick Mahomes or Deshaun Watson could have significant ramifications in determining how the AFC shapes out through the postseason.
The price would be steep though, with a large cap hit over the next two years following the 2019 season.
