The New York Jets signed running back Le'Veon Bell to a four-year, $52.5 million contract. Rumors had Bell having the Jets bidding against themselves for the last few days, and now it's official. He had been connected to a few other teams recently, but none seemed as far along as the Jets at any point. With the Jets also agreeing to terms with top-tier guard Kelechi Osemele, Sam Darnold and the Jets offense should run through Bell, making him a top fantasy running back once again. He's a surefire RB1, but the year off may drop him out of the top tier, at least until we see him perform on the field.

Free-agent running back Le'Veon Bell (Steelers) and the New York Jets have agreed to terms on a four-year deal worth $52.5 million on Tuesday, a source said. Bell has been a workhorse over his career, amassing 5,336 rushing yards with 35 touchdowns over the ground over 62 NFL games in five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has averaged 4.3 yards per carry, and gives the New York run game a huge shot in the arm, perhaps their biggest star in the backfield since Curtis Martin. The Jets bolstered their offensive line a bit with the addition of Kevin Zeitler in a trade, but Bell won't have the luxury of as dynamic of a pass attack as he had in Pittsburgh. Still, he improves the pass game with his solid hands out of the backfield. He'll once again be a decent early-round fantasy pick on draft day now that the black cloud of contract impasse in Pittsburgh is in the rear-view mirror.
