Le’Veon Bell’s ugly ending with the Jets raises a serious question (Part 1)

New York Jets coach Adam Gase never wanted to get rid of Le’Veon Bell, and he coached him that way sometimes.

Bell confided in his teammates earlier last year that he was not happy, a source said. He tried to be a good player on the team but was disgusted that he was out of Week 5’s match on Sunday and met privately on Monday with Gase and general manager Joe Douglas.

There were no passive positive tweets from Bell on Monday. It was only him, Gase and Douglas were in a serious discussion about the race’s future. They decide it is best for all parties to end the relationship. After calling around the tournament in an effort to raise trading rates, Douglas decided on Tuesday night to release the former Pro Bowl player.

They get nothing from a $ 27 million investment that spans less than two seasons – another pathetic Jets free-agent deal. However, that was the right move. From the very beginning, it was a bad marriage. Thus, this earlier-than-expected divorce allowed them to play rookie La’Mical Perine and begin planning for 2021. It’s not hard to replace 3, 9 yards per execution in a 0-5 team.

This is the only result that makes sense. The bigger question is, how did it come to this point? Specifically, why are the Jets having relationship problems with their premium players?

It happened in the summer, when Jets’s contract dispute with Jamal Adams safety became so insoluble that they traded their best player even though he had two years left in the match. copper. Ironically, Bell criticized Adams on social media for coercive trading, essentially accusing him of fleeing New York after recruiting him into the team the previous year.

And now it’s Splitsville for Bell, who also used Twitter to create the escape route.

Jets have a problem here.
