Broncos will face Antonio Brown twice in 2019

Regardless of the skill that Bell possesses it appears teams aren't willing to meet his asking price.

As of Tuesday afternoon, he had two teams in an apparent bidding war.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell plans to sign a four-year, $52.5 million contract with the New York Jets, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

No. 8 Maryland slips by MI for program's 1000th win
The victor will share the Big Ten regular season title and Conference tournament top seed with Purdue , who won earlier today. Ward might be able to play in the conference tournament and likely can contribute a little at least in the NCAA Tournament .

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson via CBS Sports, the Bills were one of six teams mentioned as interested in Bell, along with the Jets, Colts, Ravens, Packers and Texans.

The Raiders also have agreed to trade former starting left guard Kelechi Osemele to the New York Jets when the league year starts, a person familiar with the trade said on condition of anonymity.

What does this mean for Bell?

If bust, then Bell will have to consider lowering his demands.

U.S. actresses among dozens charged in college admissions scam
Parents spent anywhere from $200,000 to $6.5 million to guarantee their children's admission to elite schools, authorities said. Prosecutors say parents like Loughlin and Huffman paid Silver $25 million from 2011 through February of this year.

The deal could be worth as much as $61 million and includes $35 million guaranteed.

Brown is reportedly headed back to the Bay Area, where he joins a team that has spent big money throughout the past three days. Theoretically they have added enough skill position talent to work in Gase's system, but the offensive line is still a bit of a concern, and they better be ready to try and upgrade some various positions if they want to protect Darnold and block for Bell. That's been the biggest mystery this entire time.

And the Jets pounced on a player they think can help Darnold take their offense to another level - despite the fact Bell hasn't played since Pittsburgh's playoff loss to Jacksonville on January 14, 2018. The Jets look like they aren't going to raise their offer. Rapoport notes that the Raiders are willing to spend on Bell even after swinging a trade for WR Antonio Brown. Maybe Bell and his reps are making one final push for last minute offers, but at this point, it sounds like he's dealing with a NY or bust situation.
