Following the reported signing of running back Le’Veon Bell, the New York Jets seem well on their way to creating something special in Florham Park.

With the signing of Le’Veon Bell tonight, NFL Twitter and more specifically the New York Jets fan base is beside themselves. Matt Paradis signing with the Carolina Panthers, couldn’t care less. Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns?

Tonight is for us as Jets fans. Signing Bell at the price that Mike Maccagnan got is a direct indication of where the franchise is headed.

Look no further than this tweet.

The Jets are reversing the narrative that they could not handle big names and were not worth landing top-tier talent in the NFL. It all started with drafting Sam Darnold and hiring an offensive-minded head coach in Adam Gase.

The days of the Jets rolling with a defensive head coach are long gone with Bowles out of town, and they lasted way too long, to begin with. The NFL is trending towards a pass-happy offensive league, if it isn’t already there, and having a head coach that aligns with that is crucial.

With Odell Beckham Jr. out of New York and Le’Veon Bell in as a Jet, I honestly don’t know if any of us could have drawn up a better scenario. This team is heading in the right direction for a number of reasons. From the coaching staff to a complete roster revamp, Maccagnan has proven he was well worth keeping around as the Jets general manager.

Bell turned down a five-year, $70 million offer from Pittsburgh to come to New York. Instead, he took a four-year, $52.5 Million deal with the Jets after saying he would not listen to an offer under $60 million.

Look no further than this turn of events.

After sitting out a year, and surveying his options, Bell took a long and hard look at where the league is trending, and clearly, he saw the Jets moving in the right direction. It is an exciting time to sport the Green and White, and we are ready to keep you up to date at The Jet Press!
