The Facts: According to ESPN.com's Rich Cimini, the Jets won't cut Bell this offseason; the cap hit is prohibitive. The better question is, Cimini contends, is will they trade him? The organization has come to the realization that, because of his massive salary, the chances of a trade are remote.
Diehards Line: To create a market, they'd have to be willing to pay a chunk of his 2020 salary ($13.5 million in total guarantees). Even then, the return would be minimal, probably a Day 3 draft pick. So, Cimini summed up: "The Jets, who felt Bell gained weight and lost explosiveness as the season went on, have to make it work for another year."
