Now that Le'Veon Bell is officially done for the 2018 season, we can stop wondering when he's going to report to the Pittsburgh Steelers and start figuring out where Bell i going to sign in the offseason. 

The Steelers could franchise tag him again if they wanted to, but after this year's fiasco, there's no reason why they would. It would simply cost too much money. 

That means Bell will be wearing a new team's colors in 2019. Perhaps, green and white?

According to a Steelers source, "I think it's a foregone conclusion" Bell winds up signing with the Jets. That makes sense on paper -- the Jets have tons of cap space, a need for a running back to compliment Sam Darnold, and Bell just flat out needs a change of scenery. It'd also be a great move for the Jets and give them a top-tier running back for the first time since the Curtis Martin era.

However, Jets fans should temper their expectations just a bit, as Bell wasn't exactly ecstatic to go play for the Jets earlier this year. 

Obviously, things can change, and money usually brings about change, but that doesn't look great for either side and it'll surely pop back up again if he does wind up signing there. The Jets could be willing to give Bell a contract around four years for $60 million, which is seemingly what he wants.

All signs currently point towards Bell signing with the Jets. Who knows what will actually happen this offseason, but at this point, it does look like the Jets are the leader in the clubhouse for having Bell in 2019.
