  • General manager Joe Douglas said Bell hasn't been a topic of trade discussion, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. This doesn't mean the Jets won't listen to offers, but it does stand to reason that they'd have a hard time trading a running back with a fully guaranteed $13 million salary for 2020. Adam Gase may never have wanted to sign Bell in the first place, but the coach did reiterate Tuesday that he's been pleased with the running back's preparation, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.com. Gase also said it isn't a big deal if Bell decides to skip voluntary portions of the offseason program, something that drew considerable media attention last year.

  • Coach Adam Gase declined to comment on whether he wants Bell back with the team for 2020, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. "[Bell]'s under contract for three years. You can ask Joe (Douglas)," Gase said. "You can ask Joe tomorrow...I'm not in charge of personnel." Bell signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract with the Jets in March, two months before the team fired former general manager Mike Maccagnan. There have been reports ever since about Gase being annoyed by the contract, though he's repeatedly praised Bell for his professionalism and effort level. The 27-year-old finished 2019 with career-worst marks for yards per carry (3.2), rushing yards per game (52.6) and total yards per game (83.3), rarely finding room to run behind a putrid offensive line. Gase and general manager Joe Douglas may not be fans of the original signing, but that doesn't necessarily mean Bell will end up with a different team, as it won't be easy to work out a trade for a running back with a $13 million salary fully guaranteed (per overthecap.com) for 2020. The contract doesn't have any guarantees beyond next season.

  • Bell rushed 16 times for 41 yards and caught all five of his targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 13-6 win over Buffalo. Bell finishes his first season in New York with 789 rushing yards on 245 carries for a career-low average of 3.2 yards per carry. He was involved as a receiver with 66 catches for 461 yards, but Bell didn't demonstrate much explosiveness -- his longest play from scrimmage went only 23 yards and he scored just four total touchdowns. Despite his pedestrian production following a year off, there are reasons for optimism heading into the second year of Bell's four-year deal with the Jets. The team finished the season 6-2 in the second half after going 1-7 in the first half, and it's unlikely the Jets will add any significant backfield competition for Bell given his hefty salary.

  • Bell rushed 25 times for 72 yards and caught all four of his targets for another 21 yards in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Steelers. Bell got all the touches he could handle in a defensive-minded affair against his former team, as his 25 carries were the most he's received as a member of the Jets. He's averaged an underwhelming 3.3 yards per carry in 2019, but his volume should give him a decent floor as the Jets look to keep playing spoiler when they travel to Buffalo in Week 17. Bell has 748 yards on the ground and 425 more as a receiver but just four total touchdowns with one game left in the season.

  • Bell (illness) rushed 21 times for 87 yards and brought in both his targets for one yard in the Jets' 42-21 loss to the Ravens on Thursday. Bell enjoyed a solid return from a one-game absence due to illness against a typically stingy Ravens defense, notching a season high in rushing yards while tying his high-water mark in carries in 2019. The versatile back has endured a significantly underwhelming season overall and still doesn't have a run of longer than 19 yards, but he'll look to continue putting a strong cap on the campaign in a Week 16 matchup versus the Steelers a week from Sunday.
