The New York Jets have major issues on offense and lack top playmakers. Running back Le’Veon Bell would be a perfect compliment to quarterback Sam Darnold in 2019.

Let’s face it, everyone. The New York Jets have a terrible offense and lack top playmakers that are capable of playing at a high level. You know, the kinds of players that can push the envelope and consistently make plays that win football games.

Come next offseason, general manager Mike Maccagnan, if he’s still in a position to do so, needs to bolster the Jets offense beyond belief. They need better talent on their offensive line, better wide receivers, and yes, a premier running back that can do it all.

It’s no secret that next offseason, free agent running back Le’Veon Bell will easily be the hottest name in the market. If the Jets are serious about being contenders in the future, they need to put their money where it matters and do whatever it takes to land Bell. Not just for their offense, but for what it would do to benefit quarterback Sam Darnold.

In the grand scheme of things in 2019, Darnold would be entering his sophomore season coming off a pretty bad rookie year. Yes, he’s done well and shown signs of brilliance but unfortunately, he’s limited in what he can do due to a lack of talent around him.

From a large number of interceptions to just flat out losses, nothing would boost Darnold’s confidence and overall impact under center more than having Bell in the backfield. Bell would alleviate a lot of the pressure off of Darnold’s shoulders and be a true impact player on the gridiron.

It’s been years since the Jets had a Pro Bowl caliber running back that can be a dual-threat every time they step foot on the field. Bell would be a perfect compliment to Darnold and would be a huge part of making the Jets offense something worth mentioning about again in the future.
