Apparently Jets are trying to trade Bell? Wth?

So much for that schedule. 

 

The source is Manish Mehta, but it makes sense.  I think I posted the same thing in the trade deadline thread a few days ago.

Can someone explain why they would want to trade him?

 

Adapted a bit from what I posted last week:

A key thing to remember is the Jets GM came in after free agency.

 

If the Jets wanted to go full tank mode, they could find a way to IR Darnold (that Toe injury is bad! (or now the thumb), and trade away the players that will leave in free agency next year that may have some value to teams this year (Leonard Williams, Robby Anderson, LT Kelvin Beachum, RT Brandon Shell ). 

 

If they really wanted to go nuts they could trade away Le'Veon Bell.  The team getting Bell would acquire him for a minimal cap hit this year, and an "out" after 2020.  The Jets would free more cap room for next year.
