1. Bell not ringing up yards: Statistically, Le'Veon Bell is having the worst season of his career (not even close), and there's little hope for improvement because the offensive line is a mess and it looks as if the star running back has lost a half-step. Bell's $13 million in 2020 is fully guaranteed ($8 million in salary, plus $5 million in bonuses), and no team in its right mind will trade for a 28-year-old running back -- coming off a down season -- with that kind of price tag. If the Jets are truly motivated to move him, they will have to pull off a Jadeveon Clowney-type deal: They will have to eat part of his salary, as the Houston Texans did when they traded Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks.
