Everyone that doesn't have Dolphins, Chiefs or Bills RBs

They are 4-1. They didn't lose to the Raiders because of CEH. He got 10 runs and 5 horrible throws to him. Bell does not change the outcome. 

I see your point but I don't necessarily agree.  Bell and CEH could be used on the field at the same time, either both in the backfield or with one of them lined up as a receiver, especially now with Watkins injured.  At a minimum he would provide depth in the event of a CEH injury.

People keep talking about character issues, but where is this coming from? Him wanting to get paid? Not liking playing for Adam Gase? The first is ridiculously overblown, as that's what every NFL player wants (and all of us in our jobs as well). Dude used the only leverage he had according to the rules the teams in the NFL themselves set up. The NFL sets the groundwork, a player follows the layout, and the player is somehow at fault? Nah. 

Him not getting along with Gase? Okay, maybe I'll give you that one. But we all know Gase is amazingly incompetent, so I'll also give him a pass on that. He's had a few teammates speak out on his behalf, so I think he isn't the malcontent many are trying to portray him as.

I think these are good points.  Bell is pretty much a model citizen compared to Antonio Brown.  Bell almost always shows up for practices, meetings and games and appears to try his hardest.

Off-field concerns are mostly in the past.  No drug suspensions in years.  He did miss a Saturday walk-through prior to Pittsburgh's crushing loss to Jacksonville in the playoffs, though.  That was the beginning of the end of his time in Pittsburgh.

Revenge against the Jets= ABSURD!

They lost with him and will lose without him! Beating up an 0 and whatever team seems senseless and not a motivating factor! 
I felt from the beginning he would go to the Dolphins! He would be the guy, probably get more instant cash due to available cap, Decent overall offense on the rise, be able to prove his value and show enough for one more contract. 
anything he does inKC could lessen his future value by saying any RB would be good in that offense. 
Buffalo makes sense and possible but that team is building around Allen. 
 

He lives in Miami, no state tax, more money can be given on top of jets and he will be the guy and make the Dolphins better. Easy call= Dolphins! JMHO!

Lol this saga is certainly interesting. Felt like KC had him locked, then sounds like Dolphins, now Pats/Bills? 

I wonder how much of these rumors is simply the agent trying to kickstart a market and get teams to bid against each other? It would be a terrible agent if they WEREN'T doing that.

lol why would he go to the Dolphins? They are not a contender at all

 

They will be.

Flores has that team competing. 

Did you not see the absolute slaughter of SF? This team is no joke anymore. They have hung tough otherwise also.

Agree on the Revenge angle...  hard to believe that would be a motivating factor (in terms of Head to head vs the Jets).  

Any logical reasoning would point to first - he wants to show the world he can still play.  Been almost 3 years since he's looked like an NFL RB.  

I'm sure having some Revenge on Gase is in his head, but it doesn't necessarily have to head to head vs the Jets.  He will get the last laugh if he goes somewhere else and returns to his old form. 

Then, he would have some suitors in FA this offseason (assuming no one locks him up long term right now).  

Then, winning.  Being in a loser organization like the Jets takes a toll.

They're 2-3. They play the Jets this week. I guess that puts them as contenders right now. And they do have a bye after this week so he'd be ready to go come week 8. Weird to see, but I guess this checks out.

They’re not serious competitors this season.   But it’s certainly looking up,  and Bell gets major work plus a potential extension.  Not a bad choice tbh

For like the 3rd time Dolphins are real idiots for this. They’re doing something the Jets would do. There’s a reason organizations stay terrible I suppose.

From a fantasy perspective, is Miami the best spot for him? I feel like they could seal the deal by guaranteeing him the featured role...I doubt Gaskin/Breida/Howard would be a threat to meaningful touches. KC and Buffalo would be better overall offenses but his ceiling is certainly capped if he's not handed the keys to the backfield. I'm hoping for Miami if you're a Bell owner.

For the Chiefs themselves, it makes some sense maybe (if he actually has anything left), other than possibly blasting their 1st rounder's confidence out of the water. For Bell it makes no sense other than potentially getting a ring, which I honestly don't think he cares about since he went from a perennial top 3 team in the Steelers to the trash can Jets for money. If he's wanting numbers, opportunity and a potential one last monster contract, he should go to the Bills or Miami period.

 

Wrong. Singletary offers the same skill set as CEH. With Chiefs he has far greater chance at red zone touches

based on that tweet, miami is definitely not the destination here. 

No kidding, that would be a serious conflict of interests on the agent's part. Bell is the better client, but business like this would not be good for his reputation.

I'm guessing many people are reading this as Bell wanting to sign with an AFC East team as revenge. 

But I also want to point out that if the interest truly is mutual, the AFC East teams probably know Bell the best from seeing him and game planning for him twice a year. Might be a good sign that he still has something left in the tank (assuming it's not just his agent spreading rumors).
