Jets release unhappy Le’Veon Bell
The New York Jets released disgruntled running back Le’Veon Bell on Tuesday night.
The team was shopping Bell in hopes of working out a trade before it decided to end the rocky relationship with the 28-year-old.
“After having conversations with Le’Veon and his agent and exploring potential trade options over the past couple of days, we have made the decision to release Le’Veon,” New York general manager Joe Douglas said in a news release. “The Jets organization appreciates Le’Veon’s efforts during his time here and we know he worked hard to make significant contributions to this team. We believe this decision is in the best interests of both parties and wish him future success.”
