    I think Tua and Herbert are both better than Allen and Darnold. If Miami builds the OL this year they’ll have plenty of cash to spend next year if they choose. The key is getting Tua and I think it’s looking like a sure thing at this point.

    Jets signing Bell is perfect.

    Gase doesn't know what to do with running backs and Le'veon will just waste away in NY.

    Bell to sign a reasonable contract with the Jets. Who else was hoping he would have signed with us.

    Why would a rebuilding team need a high paid 30 year old RB who hasn't played in a year?

    Gase doesn’t know how to gameplan offense. Bell wasn’t that good in 2017, only 4.0 ypc and 7.7 ypr. Not to mention he also hasn’t played in a year and has rumored to get fat.

    I’m glad the jets over payed for a running back.

    $13 million per season doesn't seem too reasonable

    I mean he just turned 27 and like AB was arguably the top player at the position.

    Taking a year off for a RB is probably a great thing.

    The money is fine IMO, reasonable to be honest . . . .the guy does everything.

    But I agree it would have made little sense for us.

    I was explaining the rookie pay scale to wife last night when she was mentioning some of the FA moves to me, she doesn't mind waking me up to tell me whos going where when I fall asleep, even tho id rather sleep. but I had to explain to her why Christian McCaffrey made only a couple million a year despite her thinking he was one of the best players in the league (Panthers fan), C Mac is prob gonna get the Bell treatment because of his useage. hes gonna be worn the hell down by the time he hits FA. that's one of the biggest issues id have with giving Bell that money, is just his overall useage

    Now that he's gotten paid, the question will be whether he turns into an Albert Haynesworth.

    Why would he sign with a rebuilding team without a QB?
