Report: Jets show interest in Steeler RB Le'Veon Bell

Talk that the Steelers could trade unsigned franchise running back LeVeon Bell continues, and at least one interested team has been identified.

The Jets have reached out to the Steelers about trading for Bell, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

What would it take to get a deal done? Presumably the Steelers wouldn’t trade Bell for anything less than the compensatory pick they would get if he leaves in free agency next year. That pick would likely be a 2020 third-round pick, so the Jets would at least have to offer something better than that.

Fantasy Impact: 

Keep in mind even if the trade was pulled off, Bell would have to come in and learn the playbook and could potentially leave in the offseason. The Jets would likely want some kind of insurance Bell would want to remain with the team. As we reported earlier today in a story about the future of the Jets' WRs, the team is expected to have about $90 million in cap space next year.
