Jets might look into trading Le’Veon Bell, Jamal Adams in offseason
This wouldn’t be the first time that trade rumors have swirled around either of these players over the last year.
Bell signed a four-year deal with the Jets back in March, but not long after he joined the club, there was some chatter that head coach Adam Gase was considering trading him before the season.
Those rumors picked up again at the Week 8 trade deadline, although New York’s asking price was said to be very high, an indication that the Jets were not too motivated to move the halfback.
Adams’ name was also mentioned in trade talks at the deadline, which upset the defensive back. However, general manager Joe Douglas denied that New York was shopping him.
Whatever the case may be, Vacchiano notes that multiple sources around the NFL do expect the Jets to make Bell available during the offseason and that they might be willing to trade Adams.
To say that Bell’s first season in New York has been a disaster would be an understatement.
The three-time Pro Bowler has rushed for just 589 yards and three touchdowns while averaging a meager 3.2 yards per carry. He has not rushed for 100 yards in any one game this season, with his high-water mark coming in Week 7 when he totaled 70 yards on the ground.
Adams, on the other hand, has been brilliant, racking up 64 tackles and 6.5 sacks and seems primed for a second straight Pro Bowl appearance.
The Jets are just 4-9 on the year.
