The Jets want Le’Veon Bell, but they don’t want to wait for him.
New York is getting antsy waiting for the running back’s answer to its offer, and according to NFL Network, the deal likely won’t be there after Tuesday.
As I just reported on @nflnetwork … the @nyjets are getting antsy, and their offer to Le’Veon Bell likely won’t last past tonight. If he’s going to sign there it probably will have to happen very soon.

No one has a clue where Bell is going at this point. Many teams have interest in him, but it’s unclear how much is being offered and who is offering it.
Bell, 27, sat out the 2018 season after he refused to play under the franchise tag for the second year with the Steelers.
Pittsburgh decided not to tag him for a third season in 2019 and he became an unrestricted free agent in February.
Bell has 5,336 career rushing yards and 35 touchdowns on the ground in five seasons. He has also caught 312 passes for 2,660 yards and seven scores.
