According to Brian Costello of The Post, Gase and Bell have been in "constant contact" since the offseason training program began last month even though Bell chose not to report.
The two have spoken twice since the Jets fired GM Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday with both conversations being positive.
Following Maccagnan's firing, there was a report that part of the friction between Maccagnan and Gase was because Gase did not want to spend the money it took to sign Bell. The Jets inked Bell to a four-year, $52.5 million deal with $27.5 million guaranteed.
Bell voiced his frustrations with the reports on Twitter Wednesday night.
"There's been a BUNCH of false reports and speculation about me inthe past about things I've saidn and done, so I'm used to this," he tweeted. "I don't jump to conclusions when I hear or see a story that may affect me.
"Even if reports are true, that won't stop me from doing what I came here to do ... everyone has a job to do, and I'm gonna do mine whether people 'like' me or not. I'm here to win football games."
