Le’Veon Was Shown the Door in New York
Former MSU running back Le’Veon Bell was cut yesterday by the New York Jets. This guy is unbelievable. He has problems with his former team the Pittsburg Steelers and leaves that team. Then, he sits out one full year without getting paid and forfeits 18 million dollars guaranteed money. Then, he signs a four-year $52.5 million dollar contract last year. He has been a disappointment to say the least.
But the New York Jets do smell, so it might not be the worst thing for him. This guy to me has been a malcontent since leaving MSU. To be honest, I was quite surprised how outstanding he has been in the NFL. When he played for the Steelers, he was great. But that was then and this is now!
Bell lives in Hollywood, Florida and last year was robbed by two female housemates that he was sleeping with. He called the Hollywood police dispatch and reported that the females he was in bed with stole close two million dollars in money and jewelry from him. He had left to work out and they stole from him when he was gone. I heard his call to dispatch. Unbelievable. I don’t know if they ever apprehended those two female housemates of Bell's.
Le’Veon Bell will definitely get picked up by another team. The Chiefs, Bears or Patriots. He’s not in the Antonio Brown classification, but they were teammates for years in Pittsburg. The head coach of the Steelers is Mike Tomlin. He had to be a saint when he dealt with both Bell and Brown. Both of these guys I feel still can contribute to the success of an NFL team. But Antonio Brown’s situation is much different.
So, what team will pick up Le’Veon Bell?
