Rumors: Le’Veon Bell ‘has his eyes on the Colts’
Le’Veon Bell has been a big topic of conversation after his recent long-term holdout that ultimately ended Bell’s season. It’s imminent that Bell will not be a Pittsburgh Steelers next season especially with the emergence of running back James Conner. Bell already reportedly has his sights set on joining the Indianapolis Colts according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.
Signing Bell would be a dream for the Colts, considering how great the team has improved since last season in every aspect. With Andrew Luck back in action, the offense has been fantastic and the offensive line is finally reaching its full potential. Bell’s running style and playmaking ability would be a great fit for the Colts, and it would instantly increase their chances of winning going forward.
“The free agent hasn’t ruled out signing with the Jets or any team that pursues him, but the Colts, with quarterback Andrew Luck and perhaps more than $120 million in salary cap room, seem to be at the “top of his list.”
Vacchiano stated what Bell can expect his options to be in free agency after the 2018 season.
“Bell, who will turn 27 in February, certainly could do the same, especially since the Colts conceivably could match the Jets, who are projected to have about $106 million in cap room according to overthecap.com, dollar for dollar.”
The Colts will more than likely be aggressive in their pursuit of getting a deal done with Bell even though his asking price is the highest of any running back on the market.
